    I guess it depends on each phone's setup and services used. Mine goes for about 6 hours (sometimes less) I have a few email accounts, whatsapp, browsing. I wish I could get double that.

    One of the main battery savers is to turn 4g off if you don't have it. Increased my battery by a few hours

    My z10 will last 3 to 4 hours. Honest answer. Have done every trick to increase battery life. Have 3 spare batteries in case I need to be away from the car or house electric for more than 5 minutes.

    I'm running 1925/1926 and have run every official and every leak. The z10 just sucks when it comes to battery life. If I turn the phone off it might make it through the night without being plugged in. Maybe. On a good day.

    Anyone saying they can just use the phone the way they want and get over 4 hours without running through hoops is delusional. I'm not talking about running gps or any other high drain apps. This phone is a battery killer and my wife's z10 is exactly the same. We each carry a z10 and 3 spare batteries. And a hand crank charger and a solar charger. Using all this we might make it 12 hours.

    Mine Z10 lasts 1 and a half day with light to moderate use. I also turn it off at night when I go to sleep.
    So for example when I charge it to 100% at Tuesday evening. I have to recharge it on Thursday evening. Im on both WIFI and 3G, mostly WIFI.

    OS 10.2.0.429

    When I got mine it was easily getting me through a day at work, and making it to bed time with 20% or more remaining, over time though it's been less and less. Not sure it's the battery either, since I've got two and they're both running down faster than they used to.

    About 30 hours with moderate use. I'm quite happy with that after owning an iPhone.

    About 12 - 15 hours of moderate use. I have about 6 email accounts active, bbming, checking/using my calendar, browsing, CB10ing and texting throughout the day. Very little gaming throughout the day since it's a work computer

    Mine gets charged every 24 hours with 35% left on regular use.
    If I use GPS the battery drains fast.

    My Z10's normally last a few months. I've been through 3 of them since March 2013.

    You can save battery by reducing screen brightness, limiting apps abilities to auto update content, & closing apps when not in use.

    What OS VERSION IS IT? How many email accounts do you have loaded. Are they always checking for mail ? If you have 10.2.0.xxxx you can see whats hogging the juice.

    Using mine since April, moderate to heavy use. Works great! I would upgrade to a Z30 in April when they get it. But maybe not, its serving well.

    As I've mentioned before numerous times that was noticed by another CB member, turn OFF your BBLink Wifi connection and Security/Diagnostics in Settings. Turn off bluetooth/NFC/ Wireless connections when not in use. The first two added almost five hours of battery life to my z10. Try it you'll like it...

    Update: My wifi is always on however

    Also tip: what i try to do is to charge my z10 when its 1 or 2% left and then fully to 100%. I do this because the battery get lazy if you keep charging it at 20%. I don't know if this is true with the current smartphones but i read this on internet in the past. i'm doing this since i got my z10 in may and everything is well

    Battery is not an issue. I am very happy overall. SO much better than my Android phone. My Wifi is always on and I use a flip case.

    You can dim the backlighting to save some battery power. Some folks turn off Bluetooth or wifi. Games can burn through battery power.
