1. Get to Know Your Phone > Extend Your Talk Time

Extend Your Talk Time

Avoid battery drain by conserving power, using mobile chargers and spare batteries, and practicing proper battery maintenance procedures.

Your Nokia phone displays a battery gauge on the right side of the idle screen to indicate the remaining battery charge. The battery gradually loses its charge even if the phone is powered off. Therefore, it is essential to recharge the battery every several days to keep the phone in a ready-to-use state. Older batteries need recharging more often than new ones, since the battery loses its capabilities as time goes on.

Tip

It is helpful to understand how batteries are charged. In most cases, both the battery and mobile phone contain electronics that monitor and manage the charging cycle. A full battery charge occurs in two phases. The first is the quick charge, which generally takes the battery up to an 80% charge. The second is the trickle charge, which slowly tops off the battery. As the battery gets older, it holds a smaller charge, so the time required to get to a full charge will vary.
