    You need to charge the battery past the full indicator the first time. Used
    to be people always said 24 hours, now some say as low as 12. The charge
    indicator is wrong when the battery is new.

    how long have you "played" with the phone? One of the major energy
    takers is the screen's backlight. If I turn it on constantly my
    battery is dead after short 4 hours, with the backlight of the phone
    stands a week.

    Don't worry, just charge it 'till it's full. As soon as your usage
    turns normal (I mean after the "shiny new toys - period") the standby
    time will rise.

    If not, exchange it.

    Yikes, how did I miss that part? 7 hours of playing will do it.

    due to the type of battery in SE phones, they dont develop memory but
    at the same time should never be drained complete empty.

    What can happen if I completely drain my T610 battery? (I assume that the
    T300 also have Lithium-Polymer battery) Would be nice to know so that you
    could recognize any sympthoms of that.

    Re: Battery problem with T300?

    Small bubbles gathers on the battery plates which decreases the capacity.
    It's possibly to "crack" them by sending in higher voltage for a few
    seconds, i.e. 50% over recommended voltage. The downside is that you might
    damage the battery, but what have you got to lose? I have done it myself
    many times and it works very well.
