    Hello to all!

    My z10 battery drops down around 20% overnight. There were no apps running. I've been noticing this for the past couple of days. I just wanted to know if this is the issue with anyone else or its just me. Any solution would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Depending on your settings it could happen. You don't put it on a charger overnight?

    You are not the only one. This is a problem many have reported ever since the last OS update. When I'm at home I keep my phone off, I charge it when it is off, and still just turning it on sometimes reduces the battery to 95%...nevermind that even with moderate battery use the power decreases quite fast...

    Try to decrease the brightness on your..
    screen, use a darker themed wallpapers perhaps don't use any screensavers , set your Calendar, Contacts, BBM, Hub and Text apps to the dark theme.

    Also use the Device Monitor feature in your Settings to see what consumes the most power on your device...also do a search on your device on battery life...you might get some further suggestions.

    Hope this helps a bit. I also bought the BlackBerry mobile charger and carry it with me. It helps.

    Here below I copied and pasted the suggestions that BlackBerry itself gives for prolonging battery life :

    "Battery life varies depending on how you use your BlackBerry device. To help battery power last longer, here are some considerations:

    Dim the screen

    Prolong battery life by changing your device settings to dim the screen.

    Do any of the following:

    To adjust the screen brightness, choose a dark-coloured wallpaper or change the screen lock timeout, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. TapSettings > Display.
    To automatically lock your device and dim the screen when it's in a BlackBerry case or holster, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. TapSettings > Security and Privacy > Device Password > Lock Device When Holstered.
    Decrease volume

    Do any of the following:

    To decrease the device volume, use the volume keys on the right side of your device.
    To adjust other volume settings such as application volume or notifications, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen. TapSettings > System Volume or Notifications.
    To adjust other volume settings, on the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
    Close apps

    Increase how long a single charge lasts by closing any apps or features that you have finished using so that they aren't continuously running in the background. Some features consume more battery power than others. Close or turn off these apps when you don't use them: The camera, the BlackBerry Browser, Voice Control, GPS and Bluetooth technology.

    Turn off connections

    If your device is out of a wireless coverage area, turn off the connection so that your device doesn't search for a network signal continuously.

    On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
    TapSettings > Network Connections.
    Update your software

    You can often gain a boost in power savings by using the latest version of the BlackBerry 10 OS. If a software update is available for your device, a notification appears in the BlackBerry Hub.

    Use a media card

    Reduce power usage by keeping less data on your device. Save data to a media card instead of your device storage space.

    Turn off the flash

    Conserve more power by turning off the flash when taking pictures.

    Tip: Like most electronic devices, your device battery drains less quickly if you keep it out of the sun and other hot places, keep the contacts clean, and charge it regularly. Avoid leaving your device turned off with a low battery power level for an extended time."
