HTC Wildfire S uses a rechargeable battery. How long the battery can last before it needs recharging depends on how you use HTC Wildfire S. Among these are the features and accessories you use (for example, leaving your Bluetooth® connection always on uses more power). Long phone calls and frequent web browsing uses up a lot of battery power. Also, consider your location: poor signal strength from your mobile network and extreme temperature make the battery work harder.
