Battery For Iphone 5c
BATTERY Non-removable Li-Po 1510 mAh battery (5.73 Wh)
Stand-by Up to 250 h (2G) / Up to 250 h (3G)
Talk time Up to 10 h (3G)
Music play Up to 40 h
Underneath the back panel lies a non-user-accessible 1,510 mAh Li-Po battery, which is 70mAh more than the iPhone 5 had. This is basically the only department where the iPhone 5c got a minor upgrade. Apple says the battery should last for up to 10 hours of calls or 250 hours of stand-by, quite a bump up from the iPhone 5's promised 8 hours of talk time and 225 hours of standby. We're guessing the iOS 7 update has something to do with that as well.
We ran our traditional battery test and the iPhone 5c achieved a pretty good score of 52h, which means you'll only need to charge it once every 52 hours if you use it for an hour of talking, web browsing and video playback per day. Of course, your mileage will vary depending on use (calls and video are particularly taxing, whereas browsing endurance is great).
The score is just an hour better than the iPhone 5 results. The 3G talk time and stand-by endurances have been slightly improved, the web browser battery drainage is almost the same, while the video playback has strangely dropped by over 2 hours.
