    Same thing happened to mine when it was first shipped. But now I have great battery life.

    The key was to let it drain right down to nothing. This took many hours at 0% before it died. I then charged it up fully. Now the battery is a champ! Works well and I can almost get 2 full days with regular use.

    I got my classic on the Thursday after it was released. I activated it on the Friday and left Canada with it on the Saturday.

    The first week of use the battery wasn't that great but now at the end of the second week it is getting longer and longer between charges.

    I'm using it a lot on WiFi only: emails on 4 accounts, BBM , Internet browsing, downloading and streaming of video and books and documents and of course Facebook. And updating my apps to make sure they work. Some don't!

    I did let the battery drain down at Christmas - it took more 24 hours to do so. By the way the battery charges really fast.

    I'm looking forward to see what happens when I return home next week.

    Using my BlackBerry Classic :-)

    Phone is great other than two major issues which are show stoppers for me personally. I'm hoping this is just a software glitch which can be fixed in the next 10.3 OS release, otherwise I will switch back from the new Classic back to my reliable Q10 which had no issues using 10.2 OS.

    Problem #1: Keyboard backlight stops working about 10 minutes after each phone reboot. Light sensors seem to work initially after reboot but then fail all BBVE tests. I've run the BBVE tests multiple times to verify the issue.

    Problem #2: May or may not be related indirectly to first problem but battery drain is way too quick. I've tried numerous settings and configurations with and without Airplane mode on/off and I've concluded the phone lasts only about 6 hours when no applications are running in the background other than the standard system features. Phone is also on lowest display brightness setting so something. The "system" process is the largest CPU and battery consumer by far during this battery drain.

    Bummed out right now with the BB classic. If these two things can be resolved, the other features are still excellent and worth the switch. Back to my Q10 in the meantime waiting on feedback from BlackBerryHelp

    Things have improved a bit since the complete drain and recharge. Now the backlight issue is totally working fine for my keyboard. The classic charges very quickly from me in around 90 minutes from nearly 0 which is great. I plan on not letting my battery run too low going forward due to the nature of the way lit-ion batteries work. The phone is only losing about 10 percent every hour at the moment which is much better than before but not great. It's only 3 days old so I'll give it another week of regular use and see if things improve too. Thanks for the tips.

    Mine takes more than 3 hours to charge from 10% to 100% using the stock charger. Is this normal?

    Turn off Link, Blend and Protect. At least for me this turned out to extend battery life dramatically to about 2 to 3 days of normal usage.
