Blackberry Battery Guide and Charging Tips

Updated on July 13, 2013

Blackberry OEM Battery Specifications:


The Blackberry OEM battery can be used when your flight is delayed or your trip is unexpectedly longer than what you thought. 


 It’s good to have one of these batteries because you won’t always be able to recharge your Blackberry when you need to. 


This battery will allow you to continue using the device so that you can communicate via typing, talking and other things as you need to or as you see fit.


The Blackberry OEM battery will keep your device powered up.  When you are ready to use it, you can remove it from your bag or your briefcase and fire away. 


They are made to work with this smartphone. 


The battery will make sure that it has power for a longer period of time and that it can continually be recharged if necessary. 


There is integrated security within the battery.  This helps to know that you are using the right one for your Blackberry device.  The best thing to do is make sure that you only use Blackberry OEM original batteries to ensure the life of your electronic device.   


The Blackberry OEM battery will work with the following Blackberry models:  7130c, 7130e, 7130g, 7130v, 7130t, 8300 Curve, 8700c, 8700f, 8700g, 8700r, 8700v, 8703e, 8705g, 8707g and  8707v. 


Since the battery does not cost a lot, it may be a good idea to have a spare one just in case, especially if you use it a lot.


The Blackberry OEM battery has a warranty for up to a year starting from that date that you purchased it.  If anything goes wrong within that time period, you can get a replacement without cost. 


 However, since it has been proven to be effective for the Blackberry electronic device, there’s a good chance that you won’t have to replace it anytime soon.

Blackberry Standard Lithium-ion Replacement Battery


The replacement battery for the RIM Blackberry Curve Smartphone models 8300, 8310, 8320 and 8330 is a lithium-ion battery. 


This is a perfect battery for these phones because it can be used during situations in which you are delayed, such as extended trips, power outages and flight delays. 


Having this battery will help to keep your electronic device last longer.  It’s also a good idea to have an extra battery such as this one when you travel because there may be times when you will not always be able to recharge your battery.  An extra one would allow you to quickly replace the old one. 


 Then you would be able to resume talking, typing, and whatever else you need to do on your RIM Blackberry Curve Smartphone model.


In order to keep it safe, it should be kept somewhere where it stays out of the open, such as a briefcase or a bag that is secured.  These batteries are made to work with your electronic device. 


They are also designed to last longer so that you can use it for a longer period of time and that the battery can be recharged several times over a certain period before all of the juice is zapped out of it.  


There is also an integrated security system that will make sure that the replacement battery is made to work with your Blackberry phone. 


 Having a replacement battery is a good idea.  It is very similar to the original battery, if not the same.  It works and feels the same way as the original.


This battery is guaranteed to work; however, if there is a problem within the first year of usage, you can certainly get it replaced.

BlackBerry Charging Pod

This charging pod model for the BlackBerry Tour 9630 is where you can plug your BlackBerry to charge it up.

The charging cord plugs in the back of the pod. You can place your BlackBerry Tour 9630 in the base and stands up.

You have to make sure that the phone device is connecting with the two prongs that are inside of the pod.

There is nothing to plug in on the side of the BlackBerry. It stays in firmly once it is put in and it will not fall.

You can have this sitting on your dresser, table or a desk. You can hide the cord behind it so it won’t be in full view of anyone or be a hazard to someone who is walking by.

Once you put the BlackBerry tour 9630 in the base, the keypad shuts off and the screen dims, helping you to save energy. After you have docked it, you will be able to see the clock so you won’t lose track of time.

This charging pod is very convenient to have for your BlackBerry. It is not a bulky device like you would find years ago.

You can also use this for your office or your bedroom. It has a chrome design that will show off the phone.

It also works to keep it going while the BlackBerry Tour 9630 is being charged. You don’t wait until it charges up completely to use it. That’s why it is so convenient.

It is also convenient for when you are traveling on the road.

You will see the smartphone display more while you’re on the phone, recharging it, looking at videos or listening to music.

Please note that this charging pod comes without a power supply. The travel charger and vehicle power adapter are an extra purchase in addition to the charging pod itself.
