    Hi there. I am new to Blackberry all togerther and I am curious on how long should I expect a Pearl 8130 battery to last under normal to light usage? It seems like I can even make it 24 hours without a charge. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    I charge my 8130 every 2 days usually. Sometimes with light usage 3 days will go by.

    With heavy use, I can go all day without a charge. Lots of phone and data usage. When I first got the phone, I was surprised because it seemed like I was charging more than I did with the previous phone. Well, I was - but my other phone didn't have nearly the features NOR the intense data plan. With surfing, texting, and talking, it does zap the battery. Its a good thing though - it means that you're using your phone more because it's so powerful and flexible! That's why we love the Blackberry phones. Unlimited features galore!

    Never tested the limits as it is an absolutely bad idea to run a
    Li-Ion battery down on a rgeular basis. That is one of the worst
    things you can do for the overall health of the battery.

    I charge mine every night and whenever I have a chance during
    the day.

    Agree completely with amazingly... I didn't mean I ran the battery down on a regular basis! ( I never have! ) :-) I just meant I use my phone a lot, and don't have battery issues. Sorry if I wasn't clear in my thread!!!

    I have to charge my 8703e every night, but I also use it pretty much all day. Good this is that it recharges quickly.

    If I use mine constantly then about a day. With light usage then 2-3.
