It’s a constant struggle trying to keep our mobile devices fully charged when we need them the most. Most smartphones run through a full battery cycle before the day is over, which can leave you in potentially dangerous situations. Some people carry an extra battery around with them to prevent this from happening, but unfortunately this isn’t an option for everyone—yes, we’re talking about you, iPhone users. We’ve come across some pretty handy tips for extending the life of your mobile device’s battery. If you don’t have a charging station for multiple devices handy, check out these tips to help your battery last longer.
The brightness of your screen can be a real battery drain. You may not realize it, but the colorful display can actually be one of the main reasons that your battery drains so quickly. Most phones have an auto-brightness feature that automatically adjust the screen’s brightness to suit the environment—this will allow you to use less power when indoors and only amp up the screen power when you need to. Turning on this feature or manually adjusting your screen’s brightness will help preserve your battery life.
Limit Your Internet Use
It probably comes as no surprise that Internet use, whether it be data or Wi-Fi, can contribute to the draining of your battery. Only turn your data on when you need to use it, and try not to leave it on at all times. The same goes for Wi-Fi—if you’re out and about and know that you’ll probably rely on your data instead of constantly looking for Wi-Fi hotspots, turn your Wi-Fi off completely. This will prevent your phone from scanning the area and actively searching for networks to connect to.
Turn Off GPS and Bluetooth
Having your location services and Bluetooth on in the background can shorten the life of your battery. When you aren’t in your car and listening to music through your phone, or following directions on your cell’s GPS, turn these settings off. Even if you leave them on and refrain from using them, they’ll constantly be running in the background and will still consume your battery.
Use a Ringer or Vibrate—But Not Both
Unless it’s absolutely necessary, try to stick to just one of these options. Using both uses more power and will result in the battery dying faster.
Buy a Multi-Device USB Charger
Following all of these tips can help you extend your battery life, but that doesn’t mean it’ll last forever. What else can you do to make sure your battery never runs low when you need it the most? Buy a multi-port USB charger from Ohming Technology.
