A Simple Way to Solve Most Battery Issues

BlackBerry Passport on Charging Dock

Are you having issues with the battery life on your BlackBerry? Perhaps your battery doesn’t seem to hold a charge for as long as it used to, or seems to be reporting as full when it’s not – whatever the problem, try this simple trick:

1. Regardless of your BlackBerry’s battery level, begin by running it down until it shuts off completely.

2. Plug your (now-depleted) BlackBerry into a charger and leave to charge until your BlackBerry battery is full.
(Please Note: Try not to leave your BlackBerry charging overnight, as leaving your BlackBerry at 100% for an extended period of time whilst still connected to a charger seems to cause issues with the battery in some BlackBerry devices.)

Repeat this “run-down-til-it-shuts-off then charge-back-to-full” process twice more – this will sort out a large proportion of battery issues.

So before you replace your old battery, why not try this trick and see if it helps – don’t forget to let us know in the comments how you get on!!
