I’ve just noticed that the battery level on my E71 is down to just one bar. This doesn’t worry me, as I’ll be charging it in about an hour’s time. I wouldn’t normally blog about something as mundane as my battery being low, if it weren’t for the fact that the last time I charged it was Sunday evening.
Since today is Thursday, it means that my E71 has lasted a full four days. I am impressed. Thinking back to what I have done with my phone since Sunday evening, it’s been used rather a lot. I’ve listened to internet radio for about 15 minutes each morning, surfed the web, made phone calls, used a bit of Skype, taken a short video, taken some photos, sent some text messages, checked my email, used the alarm each day, and used Twitter via Twibble.
The E71 is quite a workhorse. It’s stuffed full of features, and, unlike the N95, I don’t have to worry about using them all.

Mugen Power is making a 3600mAh battery for E71, check it out: http://www.mugen-power-batteries.com/product_info.php?products_id=503
I agree, the battery usually lasts for 4 days sharp, with average use.
When listening to some music, and with a bit more talking, is still lasts 3 days.
After I installed magickey it drained battery about 30% faster! It could be some other app, but instead of 3-4 days, I have had 2-3 days. After phone resetting it works as before.
I just ordered Mugen 1800 mAh battery… I’ll comment on it when it arrives.
It costs $30 and they offer 2yrs warranty! And, allegedly it’s not just of higher capacity, but of high quality as well. We’ll see about that when it arrives 🙂
I’d be interested in how the Mugen battery performs – do let me know!
i used to enjoy the 4 day battery.. till i enabled push email.. bluetooth.. gravity (all day).. now its every day 🙁
still the e71 is a great phone.
