Your phone’s battery life will die eventually – it’s inevitable, just like any other battery for any other device. The trick is to keep it fully functional for as long as possible. You don’t want to have to experience the inconvenience of having your phone’s battery cut off at a very important time. That’s why we want to show you the ways that you can maximize the life of your battery for as long as possible.
We have compiled some things that you can do while you are out or before you leave your house, so that you don’t have problems with your battery maintaining its charge. Here they are:
- Get a charger that doesn’t need an outlet. This way, you can charge your phone even if you aren’t in the vicinity of a power outlet. You don’t get the optimum charge, but it still gets the job done.
- Do some pampering. Make sure that you keep your charging port clean and monitor the temperature of your device (don’t let it get hotter than 95 degrees Fahrenheit. You shouldn’t use your phone in the cold weather either.
- Get an upgrade. Maybe you need to upgrade your phone. Some of the newer versions also have longer battery life as compared to the older ones.
- Try to be economic, by turning odd the Wi-Fi when you’re not using it and keeping the screen dim. Close apps when you aren’t using them and extend your phone’s refresh time for things like emails, etc.
- Turn the push notifications off. They use up power, so you should turn them off when you need to save energy. Also, disable the location-based services when you aren’t using them as well.
- Fix your settings. Turn the screen time-out down a bit. Ensure that your Bluetooth and GPS stays off when you’re not using them and don’t forget that things like live wallpaper applications suck your battery power up too.
- Get apps that can help you to monitor your battery use.
- Remember not to power off your phone to save the battery. Why? – because it will take a whole lot more battery power to start your phone back up. You should only power it off every 48 hours, leave it for 15 – 30 seconds and then turn it back on again. This will help to reboot the phone system and stop any apps that may be running unnoticed on the phone and draining the battery.
- Don’t charge your battery excessively. Wait until the battery has drained to about 10% before you charge it, and then charge it right up to 100%. You can also try draining the battery down completely before charging it again – this is good “training” for your battery. Do that once a month.
