    Hey guys, I was just curious as to how low you let your battery get before you charge it back up. 20%? 10%? Lower?

    I do it nightly.. probably ends up being around 20%

    I don't "wait" to charge it at a specific point... sometimes it's around 50%

    Nightly at 8%-20%. On weekdays, I unplug my phone at 5:45AM and plug it back in when I go to bed at 10:30PM-11:00PM.

    Seems consistent. BlackBerry 10 smartphone users wake at 6:30 use their phones most of the day. Place phone on charge around 11pm at which point they have 8-20% charge left.

    "let your battery get..." ? I charge whenever I can, with a battery life like Q10's I would never pass on the opportunity to charge it, even if it is at %50. It barely lasts whole day, so definitely charge it up!

    I can get easily 2 days with heavy use before I go to bed on second day. I charge it then with about 10 to 15 percent remaining. I've never used a phone with battery life like this.

    My Q10 is sexier than your Q10.

    2 days?
    What OS are you running?

    I charge it when it gets low and I'm not using it too much. For example if the battery is at 25 percent and I'm still messaging often, I won't charge it but for instance if I'm not using my phone, and it's the evening, and it's around 50 percent let's say, I'll still charge it because charging the phone won't hinder my usage if I'm not using it constantly.

    Long answer short, it depends what I'm doing.

    I never stop charging it. Takes my own coal-fired power plant to keep my z10 running. Surprised it doesn't cause a blackout. Forget the battery I have it hard wired to the house with a very long extension cord.

    Seriously the 2 day battery life span people are claiming they are getting is getting quite ridiculous on these forums. How in the world do you manage to get that much outta your battery? Unless you probably aren't running any email accounts, social network accounts and loads of apps and games, i find it very hard to believe your claim. SO please say it as it is and stop deceiving people here and making them feel their fon is less sexier or superior...

    Now EXPLAIN HOW YOU MEAN BY TWO DAYS SO WE CAN ALL BELIEVE> Thanks

    If I shut the phone off entirely I couldn't get 2 days. And I don't want to pay 600 or 500 or even 400 for a Z30. BlackBerry should sell me a z30 for 199.00 for having bought a way overpriced z10 when it first came out. I guess I will just have to wait until the price drops to a sane level.

    Having said all that I love BlackBerry. I only wish they'd make that z20 slider that has me drooling. I sometimes still use my 9810 because they built that thing like a tank. Love that phone.

    All this crap about a z10 lasting more than 4 hours max per battery is insane. The same things I did on my 9810 that lasted 10 hours drains my z10 in 2 hours. Let's have some honesty here. I get really tired of carrying 4 batteries with me. But I get even more tired of people saying they go a day on a battery. I've used every leak. My phone doesn't run hot at all. I've shut everything off that people have talked about to save power and I still can literally watch the battery drain.

    I love you crackberry people. Even the ones who will want to kill me for this post. I'm an addict and abuser of this phone but would it really have killed BlackBerry to make a phone last 12 hours no matter how hard you push it?

    I let mine get down to maybe 15% before swapping out batteries. 24 hours is pretty common for my Q10. If I'm not sending/receiving a lot of messages I've gotten up to 30ish hours but that's not the norm.

    I tend to charge my Q10 overnight. Take it off charge at around 6am, at around midnight I've normally still got around 60% charge. Assuming I turned the phone off overnight, I'd get two full work days out of one charge. I have 3 email accounts set up, plus Bbm and whatsapp but no social networks running at all.

    Mine gets down to about 15%; I usually plug it in for an hour or two around 3pm at work to charge it up.

    Well it's not a lie. I do get 2 days. I have 3 email accounts. Facebook and I text my wife non stop not to mention I listen to a lot of music. I have wi fi on at all times. My pebble linked via blutooth and I'm not running a leak. I'm still on 10.1 because ATT hates us. You don't have to believe me. Just sharing battery life. If I plug it in daily when I go to bed I have never had it below 60 percent

    I get 2 days, with my usual usage (though I charge nightly). When I decide to play games I can't get through a day. Typical "cause and effect" scenario.

    @rjerrell87, 2 days on heavy use? that sounds out of line. But then again, what it is that you consider heavy use?

    I average between 13-16 hours on my Q10. 17 hours is my record without a charge so far. I've never "run down" the battery. Typically the "lowest" I'll get my phone is around 15%. Usually I'll plug it in the charger when I get the "Battery level at 20%" warning. I used to have to carry a spare battery or top off as much as possible with my 9930. With heavy usage, I'd have to plug that sucker into a power source at least 3 times a day. Now, with the Q10, once a day.

    I've never gotten 2 days out of my battery. With the new upgrade I'm lucky if I can get a day if I use apps from amazon with android apps.

    I truly feel for you, I'd be extremely upset if I only got 4 hours from my Z10.

    Also to be completely honest. 16 hours is about all I can use it for before charging it at night.

    I text non stop throughout my day. Some phone calls. Heavy Internet use. No games though. Many emails and app wise I use crackberry. The chive and appy geek constantly. Maybe I got lucky and got a super battery. Best battery I've ever used by far. I couldn't possibly be happier. Makes me feel bad for people who got dud batteries. My first z10 was horrendous but my replacement z10 was amazing for battery. Not as good as my Q though.

    My Q10 usually gets down to 30% or so after a full days use.. So I usually charge it by then before I go to bed.

    You werent supposed to get 2 days out of your z10 battery. Blackberry was claiming only 8-10 hours of use, I believe. So no, they shouldnt sell you a z30 for 199.00.

    MY z10 battery after the 10.2.1 update has been horrible. I think I only get about 5 hours till its dead. Im about to downgrade my OS later tonight

    Depends on the usage. If I'm going to a place where you don't expect to plug in, I charge it beforehand. When at home, I mostly let it reach 10% before charging it to full.
