Extend Battery Life - BlackBerry® Classic

Note Battery life is measured by standby time and talk time.
  • Standby time is the amount of time the device stays powered on with no voice, data, or other usage.
  • Talk time is based on voice usage.
  • Using data such as web browsing, apps, or streaming reduces overall talk time.


In order to improve battery life, you can:

  • Disable or uninstall apps (e.g., live wallpapers, etc.) that are consuming too much battery or RAM or aren't being used.
  • Contact the app developer if an app appears to cause excessive battery drain.
  • Adjust the screen brightness in the display settings to the lowest setting or use Automatic brightness.
  • Turn off GPS when not in use.
    Note If disabled, certain apps or services may not work properly.
  • Turn off vibrate mode if not used.
  • Change account sync settings to longest sync frequency.
