    700p - Verizon

    When I remove my Treo from the charging dock (Bluetooth on, but not connected to the Internet) it takes about 4 hours of dormant stand-by time for the battery meter to go down to the halfway mark. That's all stand-by, not a single phone call.

    Is this normal, or do I need to replace my battery?

    Try it without Bluetooth on.

    If you have no apps running in the background -- that is less than normal battery life.

    I lose 4 percentage points of battery life in total over night (8 hrs) with the phone on.

    However -- if you are in a low or no signal area -- the Treo can drain the battery completely in 4 hours as it searches for a better signal. . . . .

    Cheers, Perry.

    I've lived with the poor battery life for months. It sucks. I finally bought the extended battery and now I can use the Treo the way I want to, instead of having it manage me (if you know what I mean).

    Extended battery:

    I have two 2400mAh batteries so if I have to swap one out, I always have plenty of battery power. I also carry the fully-charged battery that came with the 700P.

    This may seem like overkill but I never have battery problems.

    Is it true the 2400mAh Extended Battery heats up the phone? I want one, but...

    Yeah, it gets so hot that you will likely get a large, Treo-sized burn blister on the side of your face. However, if you can learn to alternate sides, the matching blisters and resulting scars will match nearly perfectly.

    Don't believe everything you hear. Buy the battery. Save the Cheerleader.

    My chattermail was burning my battery in hours. I then upgraded it to the latest stable version and my battery issues went away.

    I have the Sedio extended battery, and while it is an improvement over the original, it's not as long lasting as I thought.
    BoxWave makes an extended batter and I'm wondering if anyone has tried it. if so, let me know how long it lasts, heat issues, etc. Thanks

    So what's the difference between the Seidio 2400mAh Extended Battery and the Seidio Extended 2200mAh Battery other than the $5.00 price difference and 200mAh of power.

    Yeah, I considered this battery for a moment...and then realized that the hundreds of dollars that I have invested in peripheral Treo gear wouldn't work with this larger profile.

    I'd be very interested in hearing about this as well. Is the Boxwave as good or better than Seidios regarding battery life? Does it heat up too much?

    Like others have said, make sure IR Receive and BT is off (unless you're using it, of course). Even so, this seems very bad battery life.

    I spent the entire work day on Tuesday in a basement conference room with no more than 1 bar showing on the signal strength meter. Sometimes no bars. My battery lasted from the time I took it off the charger (about 6:00a.m.) until I went to bed (about 11:00p.m.). And that included checking email repeatedly, a few phone calls, and a bit of web browsing. 700P with standard battery.
