    With moderate use I've achieved 30 hours on LTE and 33 hours on 3G. Love the Z30!

    Think I'll stick with my Q10... easily get 24 hours heavy usage, 3 days light usage.

    15 hours for the Z? Pah

    It would be very appreciated if anyone can try watching a one-and-a-half-hour movie with speakers to see how many percentage the battery drains.

    I'd do it but i dont think my battery meter is anywhere near calibrated yet to get an accurate result.

    I drained the battery outright after I got it but it took a while. got it at 40%. The damn thing lasted all afternoon, into the evening, left it on that night to drain it. Woke up with still 19%. Drove into the city, went to an outdoors show all day in a concrete building (assuming battery would drain dead), still 12% on the way out. Got home with 9%, D/L a few games and played until dead. Charged phone fully and on 2nd day of usage. Outstanding battery life. Very impressed. Awesome device. Best BB to date.

    Sorry... off topic. *Has anyone charged the Z30 with the playbook charger? I used to do this with my Z10, it charged it WAY faster. I don't want to cause any damage to the BIG Z.

    That's all I use on my Z30 is my PlayBook charger. Your good to go!

    The battery life on this thing is phenomenal.. I can not believe that I get more than 36 hours with my regular use with Whatsapp and work account syncing like crazy.. I am playing hours of Candy Crush, browse and post on twitter regularly, and get amazing battery life..

    Finally they get it right, make 3000mah+ phones with this build quality and they'll rise again..
    I hope Q20 or Q30 next year will also have battery like this..

    This device should have been the Z10 from day one..

    @ RubenDM... If you are with Telus, and are buying outright... You can trade in your Z10 for up to $145. That was the deal I was going to get, then I couldn't find my other Z10... DOH!

    I always keep a model below....just in case.

    @rig I was going to trade in my Z10 but Telus won't let me, since I am buying outright. They say that the offer applies only to contract purchases.

    From an engineering point of view, the device can't be damaged unless they didn't cap the amount of current draw on the device which is catastrophe.

    @Music...That's messed up. maybe it was the small town "deal" I pretty much get all of my phones through them for the last 5 years. (9 phones). Did you call around to see if anyone would make the trade in?... huh... I got nothin'...

    It's getting harder and harder for me to hold onto my current device. Uber-battery life is real tempting. A far cry from the extra JM-1 I still have to carry to ensure I make it through the day.

    ERMAHGERD ALL I WANT NOW IS THIS PHONE!!!

    I'm going to have to find some obscure reason to justify spending all that cash on a phone...It is a pity that things are so insanely expensive here...South Africa, you suck with pricing for electronics...

    Can't renew contract for another 8 months! NOOOOO!

    Not sure what you guys consider heavy use, but my Z10 holds a day if not more under my scrutiny lol. I can only imagine what the Z30 would survive!

    Have you got a chance to try it?
    SS Note 3 got 11hours of continuous movie watching.
    Curios to see how Z30 goes with that.

    When I got this phone it had 34% battery left out of the box. It lasted from about noon until I think about 6:15 pm. And even then it didn't die, I just plugged it in to charge. Now I will admit to having changed the network to hspa only, and turning off bluetooth, nfc, and location services, as well as dimming the screen down, but still this sort of battery life is amazing in my humble opinion.
