With the world becoming smarter every day, more and more smart device are rolling out every day, but one of the biggest problem that still remains is the battery life of these devices. With more and more applications coming out which make our work easier they also consume more power. And after a while the device just runs out of charge when you need it, this gets frustrating and you upgrade to another phone but sadly it’s the same story all over again.
So here are a few simple tips and tricks which would help you preserve your battery for when you require the smart device and also make your device retain its juice a little longer.
Keep The Device Cool
The main reason for faster battery drain is the high temperature of your device. High temperature for the device is very stressful for the battery. Anything above 30 degrees is considered as high temperature for your device.
One simple way of keeping your device cool is to remove it from your pocket whenever you sit down as your body heat doesn’t get to the device and the device is not confined to the small area in the pocket.
Like The App, Get The Paid One
Using free apps may be light on your pocket but heavy on the phone. The free apps do show ads. And when ads appear they do take a little amount of processing power and bandwidth. A study showed that free apps which do show ads reduce a device battery life by up to 2 hours.
Location Tracking, Don’t Need It Always
Switch on location tracking only when required otherwise Facebook and other application track your location constantly in the background and it just drains your battery. Switch off your device’s GPS and switch it on only when required.
It’s an obvious fact that higher screen brightness will definitely consume more battery. So, by following this simple step of reducing your device’s display brightness you can save a lot a battery.
UseWi-Fi Rather Than Mobile Date
When at home or a place which offers WIFI, do shift your smartphone to a Wi-Fi network as data streaming over Wi-Fi consumes much lesser battery than streaming data over mobile data.
Update Apps Over Wi-Fi
Schedule your apps to update only when you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Try to follow the tips above and you should definitely observe an increase in battery life.
