    Hi
    Would like peoples advice on this, im no tech expert so cant make head or tail of the battery thread 2400kh

    My Issue,

    Battery constantly runs out about 5-6 hours into the day, charging it throughout the day isnt a solution as im often in different cars (on a seperate note ive noticed the phone uncharges even when plugged into car charger)

    Ive turned off everything almost, autoupdate, 3g , wireless etc.

    So I can only believe the best solution is to buy a larger battery, can anyone recommend one or a better solution

    thanks

    Do you have any accessories connected? Such as a bluetooth headset?

    Sounds like you must be running a very thirsty app!

    for example yesterday I was using the new F1 timing app and it drained my battery in 6 hours, I usually get 30 hours.

    Could be a faulty battery.

    Check to see what's using it most.

    apologies, after speaking to a few people, it seems i am quite a heavy user, i constantly use the internet and use the phone for 30 min periods , i am careful to turn things off though when done

    So i suppose the question is , what is the best battery to give me an expansion on the dreaded battery cut off.

    Thanks

    I would say a spare official one and a desktop charger to charge it

    You could buy a Pebble and plug it in when the battery is getting low.
