Are you among those who complain about the battery life of their device and how it drain faster than water in a picnic basket during usage? Some of us eventually go all out to get an extra battery for the device or almost making power banks our closest friend.
But the fact is that, just as the saying goes “you cannot have everything”, no premium device comes with very big batteries. The reason is that larger the battery capacity alters the size, weight and aesthetics of the device (until maybe another type of battery cell in introduced). And another side effect is that a large battery would translate to the device heating up because of lack of space (due to how compact premium devices are).
In this post, we are going to see simple steps on how to improve the battery life of your device.
Runaway From Launchers
Of course, launchers beautifies your phone’s interface, especially if you are using stock android which is quite basic. Launchers munches a lot of battery power because they are constantly running, even in the background.
Ensure You Close Background Running Apps When Phone is Not In Use
A lot of smartphone users makes this mistake. Heavy apps are left running even after you are done and you have no reason to use them again. Once you are done with an app, do your battery a great service by clearing it from your recent tabs. This would free up the workload on the processor and battery.
Avoid The Use of Widgets And Live Wallpapers
This is another function that drains the battery a lot. This is because they work both when your device is active use or in idle mode. Inasmuch as they help beautify a device, they also cause a lot of drainage of battery power.
Do Not Charge To 100% Always
This might sound a bit unconventional, but it’s the truth. Always charging your device to 100% would wear out the battery faster and reduce the lifespan. The recommended charging limit should be around 80% and it should not drop below 15%.
Avoid Wireless Apps
Apps like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Flash share, GPS etc. all drain battery a lot. It is advisable to always switch them off when not in use.
