    Try and start troubleshooting why this is happening..re: battery draining apps, processes etc. Turn off radios your not using like WiFi and Bluetooth. Your battery should last at least 8 hours. I've had my 50 for 15 months now and I've never had to charge it during the day.

    If i unplug charger at 6am it should atleast lasts till 8 to 9pm. But by 1 or 2, am emptied. 8 hours is less for its 2600mah battery. I use only wifi or mobile data. Nothing else as bluetooth location etc. Z30 (2880 mah) on the other hand is faar more good than dtek 50 . I hope blackberry give some solution for this.

    Mine has been heavy on the battery too. I think it has something to do with the November Update. On another note, I thought one saved more battery if you leave your wifi on

    If anything changes as a result of an OTA update, do a factory reset. There is always a chance something goes wrong on a particular device.

    I do a cache clear and reboot at least once a week.

    Same problem with my DTEK50. Ever since the November update, battery drains awfully fast. Especially between 100-60, and 20-0. I can hardly use my phone below 15% because it just drains away.
    Any advice? I've tried calibrating the battery and clearing cache.

    blackberry doesn't have a bug/feedback option any more, so can't give them input. I'm getting sick of it.
    Hopefully December will fix it.

    My battery sucks the bone too since the November Update. Sometimes it goes from 40% to dead every once in awhile.

    I have an original KEYᵒⁿᵉ and my battery has been draining at a higher rate since I last updated th BlackBerry apps. I updated two days ago and I noticed yesterday and today that "Android System" is using more battery than usual. Since the updates "Android System" is constantly hogging the battery. I've done everything and it has to be one of the updated apps that is causing this behavior.

    Same here on KEYone.

    Mine too. But when even though the phone dies, when plug it in the indicator shows it has 25% (or around there) battery life left. It's just weird.

    I think the DTEK50 is by nature has a weak battery! WHO USES 2800mAh on a modern phone anymore? most Chinese phones have around 3400
