    Just wanted to know what everyones average discharge rate is? On what device an what OS? I'm mainly here to read the Torch-user posts to see if mine is average. I'm also curious to see how other devices are when it comes to battery life.


    My average Discharge Rate is about 4-6% per hour, on a Torch running OS 6.0.0.448

    Don't see how this thread is relevant. It depends on usage.

    ... I trust your battery life is really good.

    Get 3 days out of my battery so I'm quite happy with that.

    Kind regards, Alan.

    Thanks to the people who actually posted what I asked.

    @dangerousfen, I was asking a simple question, but when I say average, I mean the average of your overall usage of the phone. No matter what the usage is.

    2.8% per hour
    Device: Bold 9700
    Phone calls (3; 2 at 10 minutes; 1 at 30 minutes), texts (about 30), emails (endless), web (about 30 minutes), beweather (updated 3 times)

    On days with hardly any usage, I average between 1.7% and 2.5%. Others, I can get as high as 4.7% per hour

    Thanks for posting that from the BB site. It seems that lots of batteries are better then the torchs, which doesn't surprise me at all. Has anyone ever bought a different battery for their BB besides the default one that comes with it?
