    Since three days the battery (fix in-build) of my BB Classic drained very fast.

    Under normal use (device monitor) battery discharged from 100% to 0% in 15 to 20 minutes. The charging was equally fast 10 to 15 Minutes from 0 to 100 %. ???

    I rebooted, restored. No change. After a restore to my BB Link I made two times a hard restore. Still no change . Then I restored the BB to its old position and was convinced that I had a dead Battery.

    Went on the net to find Battery replacement. Very difficult due to our residence country > Zambia no delivery.

    Finally my old Battery supplier "BatteryUpgrade.ch <info@batteryupgrade.ch" in Switzerland answered my query mail with the Question:
    Could you please send us the part numbers (p/n) mentioned on your original battery?

    I opened the BB backcover. When I saw the connector, I sought it could no hurt to make a "Battery disconnect" with a minute or two without power to the System.

    This did the Trick. My BB works as usual with a two to three days power.

    Simple > power off totally the system.

    Does anyone know why my disconnection worked and why BB did install a battery "not to be disconnected" if such problems could occur?

    Thank you

    Definitely sounds like a reason to want a removable battery.... but truth is I haven't heard of too many people with newer phones that have permanent batteries having issues that require the device being opened and disassembled. Your fix might have been a ONE in a 100 MILLION...

    Either way, glad it fixed your issue...
