Battery for Backflip


Battery for Backflip

I bought my Backflip when it was first released.  My battery never lasts more than a day and sometimes not even a day.  I really am not a heavy user either.  I got a battery replacement and I'm still lucky if it lasts a day.


I installed the Advanced Task Killer software and I always stop all the applications I don't need and I even changed the settings to "Battery Saver."


Is this normal for the Backflips battery life?  Is there something else I can do?

It is normal.  Mine is off approximately 7 1/2 hours Monday through friday while I work and by 10 I'm down to about 25%.  Very poor battery life.  I'm actually on my 2nd phone and 2nd battery.

It is normal for a phone out of the box to have terrible battery life.  However, if you perform a factory reset, the battery will last MUCH longer.  I have confirmed this with 3 Backflips.  I can go 3 days without charging if I'm not messing around on the internet with it.


Hope this helps,




P.S.  The reset I was doing involved holding the power and camera buttons until it tells you to release the camera button.  I don't have a link handy, but do a search and you'll find it.

Disabling wireless / GPS / bluetooth will help conserve battery power. You can do this by unlocking the screen then holding the lock button until a menu pops up. Airplane mode disables your connection to your provider, just in case you were wondering.

Can you tell me the model number for the extended battery for you Backflip?  I can't locate one on-line.
