    Hi I'm just wondering how Lumia 521 battery performs.

    1.If you only do web-surfing via Wi-Fi, how long does it last?

    2.if you only use the lumia 521 as offline navigation in airplane mode, how long does it last?

    3.How long does it take to charge the lumia 521 from 0%/5% to 100% ??

    1) Wifi 12-15 Hours I would Say under heavy usage, light usage two days,
    2) Have not tried offline navigation to see how long battery last.
    3) About 2 1/2 to 3 Hours to charge from 10% to 100%

    My phones lasted all day with %75 still left with light usage. Also, mine charged within an hour (If I remember) (%25 to %100), and moderately heavy usage mine lasted maybe 4 - 6 hours (don't remember exact).

    one hour not 30 minutes. But yes, I believe so. Its an everyday home outlet and the charger that was included.

    I would say that I've been using my phone heavier than normal use because I'm still getting adjusted to it, but it lasts all day. I listen to audio books for more than 1 hour per day. I don't use WiFi at the office, so that's about 9-10 hours per day off WiFi, the rest of the time I'm usually on WiFi. I've even had to bleed the battery at night to get it to completely empty out before I start my full charge. I usually do this process with phones when I first get them. I also reboot the phone in the morning during this phase.
