Pinstack, which is one of the more popular BlackBerry forums, has been running a poll asking its members who have purchased the BlackBerry 8800 to comment on the extent of the device's battery life.

That's always an issue, and not only for BlackBerry by the way. Name me a portable computing device that hasn't been at least somewhat criticized for lack of battery use.

Given the newness of the 8800, there's a small sample so far. But if we are to assess these responses, there does seem to be some sentiment toward a view that the BlackBerry 8800's battery life is about 2-3 days with heavy Bluetooth and phone use. 

Speaking of, that's a $49.99 BlackBerry 8800 Series C-X2 Extra Battery, in case the battery that came with your 8800 dies and there's no charger handy.
