Expected Dual battery life?

A friend of mine bought a dual on my advice, and her battery life is shocking, not even two days :D

To the guys that have had theirs a while now what are you getting from yours? in the meantime I've switched it to 2G only which will hopefully help a bit

Cheers

A day and a half sounds about normal. I've had about the same battery life on all the windows mobile devices I've had. I guess I've just got used to taking a charger with me if I go away for the weekend!

I get just over a day with Direct Push, BT on, 3-4 calls, checking three other POP3 accounts and listening to music for around an hour and GPS on the way home.

Bottom line is that BT seems to hammer the device. HSDPA is switched on the Touch Plus's by default and you have to find a copy of HSDPASwitch.exe to disable it and that can also hammer the device.

There are tweaks on devs here that can help too.

I have to say the Touch Dual is one of the worst Windows Mobile phones for battery life I've had.

It does get better with time, and with 3G disabled.

Nothing has ever come close to my C600 - that baby would go for days!!!!
