    Talking Nokia 6300 Battery Drains out fast ---> Please Help

    Hi to all Cell Phone guru

    I am happy with my new Nokia 6300 so far except the battery life is not as good as I expect. I am currently using the Nokia BL-4C.

    So which model of Nokia battery I should buy to replace BL-4C ?

    Should I go for Nokia BL-5C ?

    Please kindly advise ASAP.

    My gut tells me the 5C may not fit, but I don't know the specs offhand.

    The 4C is a pretty small battery...
    Air goes in and out. Blood goes round and round. Any deviation is a problem.

    I know that some higher capacity batteries DO fit other phones. But this depends on the clearance under the battery door.

    Good luck!

    NO, too thick. Unless you modify the battery cover.

    Right. I was able to do so on my 6230b, because I was able to shave off a bit of the plastic door using a Dremel tool and a hobby knife.

    But if I recall, the 6300's battery door is... metal? Or plastic? Either way, the phone itself seems pretty darn thin to begin with. I somehow doubt there's much room for a thicker battery anywhere, no matter how you slice it (pun intended).

    BL-5C from 6030 doesn't fit into 6300 =/
    its the the plastic part that is goes on top the batter before the battery door, if that clearance is shaved off i bet it would fit...
    Overall i'm very happy with the phone as well, but one thing seems unclear to me - why doesn't it charge from USB cable...?!

    The BL-5C will fit if you shave off a little of the black area that needs to fit under the back of the phone.

    I had a couple BL-5C's left over from my 6230's so I tried it out.

    I also bought a black cover to use instead of the stainless steel one since it's thinner.

    It's tight, but it fits.

    The lighter black back cover is compensated by the heavier battery so everything feels the same still.

    I'll see how much more usage I can get.

    Yes, black cover from ebay.

    I think it looks better too since the entire back is now one color.

    I'm going to bed now so I'll post pics tomorrow.

    I think you should buy a new battery or upgrade your firmware coz it might help. My phone's firmware version is 4.71 and it can run for 3 whole days with a few phonecalls and lots of texting.

    Some other tips:
    1. Go to Settings > Phone > Operator Selection > Manual and select your operator. This way the phone doesn't search for a signal all the time and drain the battery out.

    2. Batteries are normally factory charged so you should drain the batery flat before charging it for the first time.

    Battery life is okay. Better than my 6230i which needed recharging every other night.

    I usually drain the batt before charging it but some people do it the other way. But i'm happy with the battery life of my 6300.

    You can see how much I trimmed away with an X-acto knife.








    I like how the black cover blends in with the back better. It's some sort of metal material, but not as thick as the OEM stainless steel one.

    ha. that actually looks pretty nice. Whats it made of? High grade plastic?

    and most importantly, how much of an improvement have you seen in the batter life?
