    just got a 8530 and battery performance is driving me crazy.

    does anyone know if the 9630 gets better life out of the battery?

    if not, really thinking of going back to 8330.

    Battery: 1150 mAh removable/rechargeable lithium-ion battery
    Talk Time: 4.5 hours (approx)
    Standby Time: 10.5 days/252 hours (approx)
    1400 or 1150 mAh is a pretty clear difference, but notice how little difference there is in Talk Time between them.... half an hour.

    Bigger is somewhat better, about 10% worth.

    I use my phone more for FB/e-mail/GV texting through e-mail so the extra mAH helps that.

    Depending if u have a recent 5.0 upgrade I can go a whole day with one charge and I have .484 and I work from 830am to 730 or 8pm I use the internet, text,and talk in 15 25 min at a time so that's something to look into

    My 8530 battery life it bad too... You can try the tour and see, if you don't need the wifi and trackpad. I would try .508 too to see if that helps.
