Ways to Extend Your Smartphone Battery
Do you ever look at your phone in the afternoon and notice that you only have 20% battery left? Don’t panic, because here are a few ways to give your battery more life no matter which device you own.
Watch for push notifications.
Every beep, vibrate and new message on your lock screen will take a serious toll on your battery.
Use ‘airplane mode.’
Airplane mode will prevent your phone from constantly searching for a network. The only downfall is that you cannot make a call while in this mode.
Close your apps.
Even if you’re not using them, apps will often run in the background. Make sure to close any app you are not presently using.
Lower the brightness
It’s simple, but something we frequently overlook.
Turn off wi-fi
It’s not uncommon that your phone will constantly seek out wi-fi when you’re not connected to wireless internet. This is an instant battery drain.
Keep it cool
It has been proven that batteries use more energy when hot. Experts advise not to carry around a phone in your pocket and to never leave it sitting in direct sunlight.
