Owners of the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 are no doubt pleased by their devices’ performance and screen brightness, but disappointed about battery life. Like a sports car that can only go 50 miles, these models always needed an early-evening charge if they hoped to make it through the day. Just like extended Bold battery packs in the past, they exchange about an extra half-inch of device width for extreme battery capacity: a whopping 3000mAh.
Currently the only solution is the BlackBerry JM-1 Battery Charging Bundle from RIM. It’s a great solution for around $80, but requires you to either pocket or bag the 3 extra items you’ll be carrying.
