Tips to make your battery last longer

Power down

The first and the very obvious way to conserve battery is to turn your phone off. While you need the phone at some point, but if you are sleeping or attending a very important seminar, you can turn your phone off.

Turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS

There are times in your day that you don’t need Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. When you are in your house, relaxing and watching a movie, you don’t need GPS or Bluetooth, unless if you are using a Bluetooth headset. Or, if you are out, make sure to turn your Wi-Fi off, or your phone will work hard to get internet signals from the nearest tower.

Turn off vibrations and keytones

Many of us want our phone to vibrate when there are incoming calls and notifications. It’s actually a good thing, but, the battery exerts effort to make your phone vibrate, hence, more power is being utilized. Switching vibration off, as well as the keytones, could really save extra percentage of your battery.

Minimize flash photography

If flash is not important when taking pictures, turn if off. Some smartphones have powerful flash, therefore, uses a lot of energy, especially when taking multiple shots in a row. Hence, when taking pictures under bright light, turn the flash off.

Lower display brightness

Like laptops, it’s also better to lower the brightness of your phone as much as possible. This will help you save your phone’s battery.

Don’t search for signal

If you are in a place with poor reception, you can either turn your phone off, switch it to airplane mode or purchase a signal amplifier to get better signal. Your phone will do the hard work to search for signal, hence, more consumption of the phone’s battery, than normal.

Don’t let it die

It’s not recommendable to charge your phone if it’s near empty. You need to charge your phone somewhere between 20 and 80 percent, in order to maintain the health of your battery.

Keep it out of the heat

Don’t leave your phone in a hot place, like in a hot car. Your phone’s battery might not be working well in high temperatures. Check out your phone’s manual to know the optimal temperature range your phone’s battery functions well.

Limit the screen timeout

Shortening the timeout is one thing that could give you an extra percentage of your phone’s battery. Let your phone switch to sleep mode immediately after you finish using it. So, select the shortest time available, and you can save your battery.

Update apps regularly

Be wise when using automatic download of app updates. Some apps may have updates that increase its battery efficiency. But, there are also apps that continually gives updates, but nothing about battery efficiency. So, you need to decide for yourself what apps you want updates to be automatically downloaded and what apps you need to manually update.

  1. I have a smart phone. My phone battery lasts less than one day as I usually use Wi-Fi, GPS and play games. But after applying these tips especially turning my phone off when I am sleeping and switching vibrations and keytones off, now my phone battery lasts more than one day. I think that charging phone at 20 percent is a useful tip to maintain the health of battery.
    Thank you for these good information 🙂

  2. Turn the phone off. Only do this if it’s going to be for several hours; turning a phone on/off actually uses a massive amount of power itself. This will probably be the most effective and simple way of conserving your battery’s power. Why? This will help conserve energy and also charge your phone. If you don’t plan on answering the phone while you’re sleeping or after business hours, just turn it off. Do the same if you are in an area with no reception (such as a subway or remote area, since constantly searching for service depletes the battery fairly quickly).
    Some phones have an automatic power save feature, but it takes about 30 minutes with no service to kick in. By then, much battery power has been used. If you are using a smartphone and have no reception, disable the phone functionality (flight/airplane mode).

  3. Great article thank you for the tips!I always turn my phone off when sleeping, don’t want to be bothered. The alarm clock turns on even if the phone is off. You recommend to always update our apps, but sometimes the updated apps use more battery than before. This recently happened with the messaging app Viber. I updated it and it started to literally drain my battery. So annoying. But anyways very useful tips, that will help me prolong the battery life of my phone.

  4. This is an excellent instructions on how to save battery power maximum. I followed the instructions and apply even a few steps. When I saw that my battery lasts longer, I applied almost all the steps and now I am very satisfied with how long my battery. Several guidelines have used but this is the only managed to save me the battery considerably longer than normally lasts. I recommend to everyone to try when having problems with battery life. All praise for Instruction, keep it up.
