Here a screenshot from the bettery lifespan of my blackberry 9360. Its a well know issue that the battery of the 9360 is not so great then its other brothers. Some say it depends on the apps you are using, others say its the device software that determines your battery lifespan. I can say that my battery last for minimum 2 to 3 days depending on the intensity I use it. For me I mainly use blackberry emails, wordpress and bbm. I love the 9360 but his older brothers battery the 8900 was much better. Maybe its a good idea for RIM to bring out a new battery with a higher capacity for this model.

These tips can help you save battery life on the blackberry 9360:

1. Delete unnecessary e-mail accounts from your device. I had 7 e-mail accounts before and now only 3 of them on my BlackBerry. Link account with the forward option.

2. Use filters for your e-mail accounts. Ex: I filtered twitter and forum subscription e-mails so they are not coming to my BlackBerry anymore.

3. Led settings are important for battery life. Disable led for unnecessary notifications. Ex: I disabled leds for e-mails and Twitter.

4. Edit Twitter, BlackBerry News, Facebook, BeWeather (etc) auto refresh times.
They were set to refresh every 5mins before and now I uninstalled Facebook (which I’m not using so much), set BlackBerry News & BeWeather to auto refresh every 6 hours and Twitter for every hour. (mentions and DMs coming right after they sent anyways)

5. Disable Browser Push; useless and affect your battery life.

6. Disable Browser JavaScript.

7. Disable vibration for unnecessary notifications (I disabled them all).

8. Set Backlight Brightness as 10 and Timeout for 20 seconds (or 10 I got it set as 20)

10. For OS 7.1 set Battery Saving Mode as Always On. 11. Set Location Services Off.

12. Disable Compression (Storage settings)

13. I got Cell Broadcasting disabled (not sure if it effects)

14. Uninstall unnecessary applications

15. Disable BePopup (etc) for e-mails (got it enabled for SMS only)

16. BlackBerry Protect location option is disabled for me because I got insurance for my device (but keep it on if you want)

17. BeBuzz led settings: • Slowdown Led: 1min • Stop Led: 2mins • Pause Between Flashes: 1sec • Pause Between Slow Flashes: 4sec • Pause Between Idle Flashes: 10secs

18. Close apps that you’re not using. Don’t let them run at background.

19. Delete MeterBerry and/or any other battery monitoring app. (use BlackBerry Device Analyzer for OS 7.1)

20. Before updating your device don’t forget to shrink your OS w/ BBHTools. (ask for help for what to shrink if you don’t know which are safe to shrunk)

I’m sure its gonna help you save the battery life of your blackberry 9360 🙂
