How can I extend battery life?

Battery life varies depending on how you use your BlackBerry device. To help battery power last longer, here are some considerations:

Display settings iconDim the screen

Prolong battery life by changing your device settings to dim the screen.

Do any of the following:

The volume settings iconDecrease volume

Do any of the following:

The app iconClose apps

Increase how long a single charge lasts by closing any apps or features that you finished using so that they aren't continuously running in the background. Some features consume more battery power than others. Close or turn off these apps when you don't use them: The camera, the BlackBerry Browser, Voice Control, GPS, and Bluetooth technology.

Connections settings iconTurn off connections

If your device is out of a wireless coverage area, turn off the connection so that your device doesn't search for a network signal continuously.

  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Network Connections.

The software updates settings icon Update your software

You can often gain a boost in power savings by using the latest version of the BlackBerry 10 OS. If a software update is available for your device, a notification appears in the BlackBerry Hub.

The media card iconUse a media card

Reduce power usage by keeping less data on your device. Save data to a media card instead of your device storage space.

The camera iconTurn off the flash

Conserve more power by turning off the flash when taking pictures.

Tip: Like most electronic devices, your device battery drains less quickly if you keep it out of the sun and other hot places, keep the contacts clean, and charge it regularly. Avoid leaving your device turned off with a low battery power level for an extended time.
