Check these tips to keep your battery life going strong and long.
Turn off flash photography
Most camera apps are set to take flash photos by default. But camera sensors in mobile phones are getting more sophisticated these days, so you can get by without flash and save previous battery life.
Use dark wallpapers
Your choice of wallpaper affects your battery life because lighter colours use more energy on smartphones screen display. Animated displays also eat up more power, so keep it dark and simple.
Keep away from direct sunlight
Battery technology still has a long way to go. One thing that weakens battery life is exposure to direct sunlight. It can doesn’t reduce battery life, but can cause permanent damage, so be sure to keep in in the shade.
Use WiFi instead of data
This habit can be a real battery saver, especially if you spend a lot of time streaming online videos. Switch to wifi and you can also save up some of your monthly data quota.
Turn off location services
Everyone needs to use location services for navigation apps like Google Maps and Waze. But turning off this feature on apps that don’t necessarily need it is a real saver.
Turn off vibration
This little feature is handy when you’re in a meeting or at the movies, but when your phone vibrates for every notification, it can be a battery drainer.
Turn off Bluetooth
We all love the convenience of wireless Bluetooth technology, but if you don’t turn it off, it keeps scanning for Bluetooth devices, wasting batter life.
Use Airplane Mode
This tip can be a lifesaver when you’re in a battery emergency. If your battery is in the red danger zone, or if you need a quick charge, turn airplane mode on.
Avoid overnight charging
This battery optimizer tip can prolong your phones lifespan. Charging your phone overnight can cause battery damage, so it’s best to charge in multiple short charging periods.
Notice how sometimes your battery icon shows that it’s still charging even at 100%? That means it’s overcharging and weakening your battery, so unplug when done charging as a battery optimizer.
Disable automatic updates/downloads
Some phones are set to update automatically. Need a battery booster? Turn this feature off and choose to update them manually instead.
