Battery LIfe of a Treo 650 – The Real Story

So you are wondering how long the battery will last on a Treo 650 under normal conditions?

Well, mine seemed to last forever when I had ready access to a plug, but right now, I’m running it hard and the plugs are few and far between, so I now have a really GOOD idea of how much mileage you can get out of a single battery charge.

The answer depends on how you are running it. Right now, I’m running my Treo constantly with a full ongoing connection to the Internet and a constant “On” status for my bluetooth. When it’s not a phone and an e-mail handler or a web browser, it’s being used to entertain.

Honestly, it’s going pretty much constantly.

With that said, I can get between six and eight hours per charge on a single battery. With the original battery and a spare, I’m getting a full day’s energy.

If I knew then what I know now, I’d have sacrificed the extra space to pack my cradle-charger so I could re-juice both batteries at once.

But, this trip was designed to give a full work out to the Treo so I would know how to make it work as a full-fledged office so I could pass that information on to my readers. :O)
