    Just wondering your experiences with battery life on the PB keyboard? I left the switch ON over night, and the battery drained by the morning. I guess even with non use, it still drains if you don't use it? Has this been your experience too?

    Many people claim the keyboard lasts for days or weeks without recharge. Was yours fully charged and depleted overnight?

    Let's see what others say.....

    I have had my keyboard on for about 2 weeks and still working without a recharge. I never turn it off. It should go into a standby mode.

    I've had my keyboard since august use it frequently, leave it on all the time, no probs. Either yours want charged or you have a defective keyboard

    The BlackBerry Bluetooth Mini-Keyboard fully-charged and left in the powered-on position, with the BlackBerry PlayBook set to Airplane Mode enabled whenever not in use, seems to last for at least a month with intermittent use of the keyboard and a minimum of 3 weeks with extensive keyboard use. I never power-off the keyboard because my experience with a powered-on/powered-off use pattern seems to drain the battery a bit faster but more importantly from a user perspective the keyboard typically requires a re-pair (not repair) to establish a connection with the tablet via Bluetooth. When always-on at worse the keyboard needs a few keypresses to establish connection to the tablet after disabling Airplane Mode. If you enable and disable Bluetooth explicitly you will likely encounter the connection re-pair issue, however, I have not tested this particular scenario.

    I've only had mine since Dec 19th, charged it overnight and haven't charged it yet. Been using it everyday since I got it. Never turn it off via off/on switch (only sleep mode)......NO PROBLEMS (knock on wood.....knocking). I will see if it last a month without needing a charge and let you know. Did you charge the OEM PlayBook Bluetooth Mini Keyboard with a OEM Blackberry charger?
