Standby and Talk Times

Standby and Talk Times - Don't believe everything you read on the Internet! We often see our competitors claim many times the standby you might expect to get. Standby times are always difficult to estimate. Standby time and talk time can vary because of what type of phone you have, phone features used, network conditions, geography, strength of signal, your service provider, etc. Our estimates for standby and talk time are very conservative. We work to under-promise and over-deliver by bringing you the best cell phone batteries on the market at the lowest prices guaranteed.

Standby and Talk Times are also affected by a number of variables such as Digital vs. Analog, NiMH vs. Li-ION, Model and Age of Phone, Temperature, and Humidity. Standby and Talk Times are determined industry wide by a mathematical equation and can vary plus or minus by as much as 40% depending on the factors mentioned above.
 
Not all phone models are built alike. Some phone models, such as the Nokia 5100/6100 series, will get twice as much standby time as listed on the chart below. Your phone model will get at least as much standby and talk time as is listed below.
 
Analog vs. Digital Phones - Analog phones can use up to 2 times more power than Digital phones. Some newer phones automatically switch between Analog and Digital signals. Standby and Talk Time will vary greatly for these phones depending on the amount of time each signal is utilized.
 
NiMH vs. Li-Ion Batteries -Li-Ion batteries will typically provide 30% - 40% more Standby and Talk Time than NiMH batteries of the same capacity (measured in mAh - mili-amp-hours).
 
Note: mAhstands for "milli Amp hours" and is the measurement of a battery’s storage capacity.

For example, the Nokia 5100/6100 series of phones can expect to get as much as twice the standby time as what is listed in the table!
