Palm Vx battery

Have been reading about how the Palm Vx battery tends to go; I think my Palm is starting to show signs that the battery is going.

It's not really taking a charge anymore - for those with experience, how much longer can I expect it to hold out?

Would appreciate any suggestions you have...

Thanks,

-Dan

Re: Palm Vx battery

LiIon batteries typically start to degrade slowly after about a year of use. My cell phone lasts about 1/2 as long as when I first bought it four years ago. How long LiIon batteries last depends heavily on the heat to which they are exposed--how hot and how long. LiIon hates heat and will deteriorate much more rapidly when left in hot cars, etc.

Thanks for your advice.

My Palm Vx's battery life finally took a dip for the worse; it started to lose half its charge during a day of moterate use...so I thought it was time to upgrade.

Just picked up a T3!

(Which is pretty cool. However, it seems that if I play with the T3 a lot during the day, then it is very easy to go through half of the battery as well...oh well - I needed the extra memory...)

Welcome aboard! For what you traded in battery life you gained in incredible speed, screen, and memory.
