    I have a Q5 and have questions about the q10.
    What is the time the q10 takes to charge from a minimum of say < 10% to 100%?
    If any of you were using the bb9900 before your q10s, please compare the charge times from zero to 100% comparatively.
    And lastly the q5 and q10 batteries ratings and physical sizes. Are they the same size physically?
    Thanks in advance.

    I used the 9900 before my q5 and though the 9900 batter did not carry too much juice it had one advantage, it would charge to a 100% is close to half hour. I have not seen any battery charge that fast every(mobile phone). Comparatively the q5 battery takes forever to charge.

    Charged my Q10 battery last night in less than three hours. Would rather say two and a half. I am using an original charging cord.

    Sorry, cannot comment regarding physical sizes of batteries and charging time of 9900, since owed neither of them.

    You need a higher amperage charger. The old blackberries could make it on a 500mA charger. I try and get a minimum of 1A, though the 2A charger I have charges the phone to full in about an hour.

    I have run number of measurements on my Q10 at using Battery Guru app.
    Charging rates:
    with stock 850mA charger - 0.8% per min up to 90%. Than rate drops down and you need 42-44 min up to 100%.
    with 2.0A charger - 1.2% per min up to 75%. Than you need 65 min up to 100%.
    I played also with Charger Bundle. Full battery in the Bundle plugged in a phone provides the fastest charging, 1.5-1.6% per min. But the drawback is unusually high temperature.

    Note: I didn't yet run similar tests for 10.2.1. But I have not seen/read any evidence of changes in battery performance so far.
