From the many phones I had, the E51 is by far the one with the best battery life. Even with Bluetooth enables, it will last some days. The only thing I switch off when I dont need it is the WLAN.

Shure, the E51 battery does not suffer from memory effect. But it is always a good idea with modern batteries to charge them up to the maximum and then use it until it goes off. AFAIK, this is for initilazing the battery electronics and has only be done once. But after that, you can charge your battery as often as you like.
I am not sure if this applies to the E51 battery, but this is the case with most notebook batteries. And it is not too much work to try this once.

A story about E51 battery life and survival instincts...

I used to get 3+ days out of my stock E51 battery, with BT, WLAN etc. on but not scanning.

Then I went swimming with it. Hairdried it (warped the screen) then left it for dead in the airing cupboard for two weeks, after which time it started up but with the notification light on permanently and battery dead after 30 mins. Left it for another six months in the airing cupboard (forgot about it - bought an E66) then found it and fired it up. No more notification light at all, and the battery lasts all day now. Some Nokia phones are amazing!


PS I crushed the E66 while leaning over the back of a boat. My E75 isn't allowed near the water any more - my Nokias don't like the sea!


battery, e51, life
