Treo 700w battery life

I recently switched to using a Palm Treo 700w phone after nearly three years with a Sony Ericsson t68i. I’ve found the battery life on the Treo to be horrible compared to the t68i. Anybody have good tips on extending the battery life on Treos?

Turning off Bluetooth helped a bit. Scheduling ActiveSync not to check on the weekends seems to help as well.

  1. Adam, how do you sync this with you Mac (or do you use a Windows machine)? PocketMac? Missing Sync? I gave up my Windows Mobile smartphone due to the battery and slowness. Back to a good ol’ Nokia 6230i!

  2. Dave: Mixed thoughts about the 700w. Give me a few more weeks and we’ll see. Battery life seems to be getting better after I adjusted the ActiveSync schedule, lowered my backlight, and turned off Bluetooth. The user interface is still pretty bad. Windows Mobile tries to cram too much onto the screen.
