Why does my iphone suddenly start losing full battery power

Customer Question

Why does my iphone suddenly start losing full battery power in 6-7 hours? It used to last me two days without a 3G network. I deleted some apps I dont use but it didnt make a difference.

Electronics Pete :

Hi there,
How old is your iPhone?

Electronics Pete :

is your iPhone connected or disconnected to the 3G network?

Electronics Pete :

The iPhone's battery power usually only lasts for around 24 hours when moderately used.

Electronics Pete :

Other settings like the frequency with which you retrieve email and the number of email accounts you auto-check can both affect battery life.

Electronics Pete :

As the battery becomes older, its ability to hold charge will decrease, and you will see a decrease in the length of time the battery holds its charge.

Electronics Pete :

You can turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to save battery life, as well as using airplane mode when you have no cellular cover.

Electronics Pete :

Adjusting the brightness to make the screen dimmer will also help conserve the battery life.

Electronics Pete :

Using 3G cellular networks loads data faster, but may also decrease battery life, especially in areas with limited 3G coverage.

Electronics Pete :

You should also let the battery completely run down before recharging it to maintain it properly and help it keep its charge for longer.
