Hi folks, one of the most common things that happen with BlackBerries is low battery life. Numerous times i’ve had people tell me that their BlackBerry battery is draining too fast for their own good.

People ask me how I manage to use my BlackBerry as often as I do and don’t have to recharge it till it’s time to go to bed. Well the answer is easier than you might think. Close those apps!

When you open apps on your BlackBerry they stay open. If you don’t choose close or exit from the menu they are still running in the background. With lots of apps open you tend to drain more battery life. If you actively manage your open apps and close them you will extend your battery life.

-Cheers, RP
