| | Treo 680 battery life
I just recieved my new unlocked GSM Treo 680, and am using it with T-Mobile with no problems. Now I understand that the battery on this device leaves a lot to be desired, but I think mine has a problem. Just curious to see if anyone has any suggestions or has had this same issue.
I charged the phone to 100% in the evening, and took it off the charger. Let it set on my dresser overnight. When I got up in the morning, it was down to 20% remaining. That is after 8 hours of just setting on my dresser. I charged it again, and after 4 hours it was down to 50%. I made a couple of calls and checked my email, and it was down to 30%. Is this normal? If it is, it's going back to Palm. My 650 was far superior in terms of battery life, and the benefits of the 680 vs. the 650 do not make up for this poor of battery life.
I did contact Palm and they are sending a replacement battery out. I just can't imagine any device that has this poor of battery life.
Any suggestions appreciated.
If at first you don't succede, try, try again. Then give it up, no using making a dang fool of yourself.
