There have been small capacity improvements in BL-5K and also in other Nokia batteries during the course of time due improved manufacturing methods and battery technology development. Currently there really are two versions of BL-5K batteries, 1200 and 1300mAh.
I guess the reason for you not being able to find 1300mAh versions from retailers yet is that in order of keeping their capital tied up in storage reasonably low, they first need to sell old stock before ordering new batteries.
Hi ! I just got my nokia 701 for about a month now and I am Very Unhappy with the battery life ! The battery lasts for about TWO days only with very very little usage ! I might only surf the web for about ten minutes a day or so ! ( all other apps are off ) ! I'm sure this battery is faulty ! .... I want to take this phone back to the mobile service provider for assessment ( no Nokia service centre near me ), however my BIGGEST concern is that they would want me to send in the complete phone as well ! .. Now the thing is I have a lot of private info on the phone already , banking details , e-mails etc so I dont want to do that and it has taken me WEEKS to finally personalise the phone the way I want it so I don't want anyone to interfere with that , also I know from previous experience that when you hand in a phone that looks like brand new it is never returned to you in that same condition ! Always comes back with scratches ! ...... Is it possible to hand in only the battery for testing only ? Please will a Nokia consultant advise asap !!! Regards.
I do use it for calls and messaging but not everday. Considering the high battery capacity and all the reviews that I have read which claims a standby time of 21 days , I would expect the battery to last a minium of at least 7 days .
Hi ! Thanks for that explaination but I think I will check it in for an assessment anyway. .... I do have other complaints about the 701 ,hope someone from Nokia can shed some light, not sure if I can air them here but here goes . 1. The Loudspeaker is NOT loud enough, Why have 2 speaker grilles at the back if u only gonna fit 1 speaker, When u use the phone in the car , You can bearly hear the caller when the loud speaker is on . Don't call it a loudspeaker if is its not gonna be loud . Also u can bearly hear the phone ring if its in your pocket. This is because the clothing covers the grille and the sound is muffled. The loud speakerS should be fitted on the top edge of the phone where the current usb socket is . This way it will throw out the sound much better. 2. Excessive amount of heat is generated when the screen is lit up for a few minutes, this can be felt at back of the phone ( the aluminium cover here doesn't serve much of a heat sink ).
3. Sim card can be easily removed but u need to remove the battery to get to the memory card. This is most stupid !! This should be the other way around . ( Who designs these things ? !!!) 4. BRIGHT led on when charging. ( when u awake during sleep and open your eye for a moment you think u have left the bedside lamp on !!) The led should be dull. 5.When u open the contact list and tap on a contact , u would expect it to dial out immediately , instead it shows u the option to make a voice call, message or video call .It should only give u these options if u tap and hold on a contact ! ( it should only open this field if different numbers are assigned to the same contact) This is a waste of time when u want to dial someone ! 6.Notes - when create a note , it stores it with the current date however if u review it a few days later and close it , it the stores it with the date the note was reviewed.( This is useless to me !) I should be able to view the date I created the note instead!......
.... anyway thats just a few complaints and suggestions for the people at Nokia to think about , I have more but will add them the some other time .
