Batteries may be lasting longer than ever, but if you’re like a lot of other people who are willing to do whatever it takes to get the most out their batteries, here are some pretty useful tips on how to make your phone battery last longer.
Turn Off Your Phone
Yes, we mean it. It may seem like a no-brainer, but if you’re in a pinch and in desperate need of your phone, turn it off when you’re not using it. You can always return those missed calls and texts later after you’ve had some time to power-up.
Turn Off Vibration
Many people like to use the vibration option because it gives the phone more substance when typing or making selections. Unfortunately, the vibration also uses precious battery power that you may not be willing to sacrifice.
Limit Your Connectivity
Staying connected at all times has a price, and that price is battery power. Think about turning on Airplane Mode or shutting off WiFi and Bluetooth whenever you can.
Darken Your Screen
It’s likely no surprise that one of your phone’s biggest battery sucks is your screen. Lucky for you, it’s easy to adjust your screen brightness on the fly. You don’t need to keep your screen on 100% at all times. Try darkening your screen for normal use and only crank it up when viewing more light sensitive materials like photos or vids.
Use Black Wallpaper
Did you know that phones with a AMOLED screen only power colored pixels? In order to conserve battery life, select a black wallpaper that will limit the amount of energy consumed and prolong your usage.
Turn Off Apps
Some claim that open apps don’t drain your battery, but think about how fast google maps can suck the life out of your phone (especially when you forget to close it). Clean up your apps regularly and only keep the ones you’re actually using open.
