How To Extend Nokia 6300 Battery Life

Before we get into answering the question, let us understand first what causes the Nokia 6300 battery to drain so quickly.  Firstly, to maintain the slimness of the phone, a lower capacity battery is needed. Secondly, the phone comes with 16 million colours and the display is bright.  Thirdly, the phone has lots of functions that causes the battery to drain quickly; e.g. Bluetooth, GPRS, camera and music player.

In order to extend your battery life, you can do one or more of the following:

  1. Turn off everything – Leave only the essential functions you need.  This method is not very practical since the Nokia 6300 was designed to do beyond calling, texting and MMSing.
  2. Drain and charge – Use your phone until the battery completely drains and charge it to full again.  Repeat as necessary.  Some owners have reported longer battery life after performing this and a few owners reported that if you charge the phone while switching off, the results would be better.
  3. Change to BL-5C battery – The Nokia 6300 comes with the BL-4C battery.  If you change to the BL-5C batter (which is of higher capacity), your phone will last longer.  However, you will need to sand off about 1milimeter in order to fit your phone.  DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. This method may void your warranty.
