How to Keep Your Device’s Battery in Good Health

How to Keep Your Device’s Battery in Good Health

Everyone has been in a situation when their mobile device’s battery is too low for comfort, but if you know the right tips, you can prolong your battery’s life well beyond what you might expect. Let’s go over some of these methods.

Five Ways You Can Improve Your Battery Life

There are plenty of ways to keep your battery charged for a longer period of time, but we’re focusing on some of the simple, cost-effective solutions.

Don’t Use Battery-Draining Apps

Your applications will use a variety of features by your device, and some of them will use more juice than others. A good way to think of it is the more resource-intensive your application is, the more power it will use up, draining your battery faster. Some apps that keep the screen on, play video, or make your phone feel a bit warm will use up more of your battery.

Lock Your Device When It’s Not In Use

Locking your phone is helpful from a security standpoint, but also from a power-saving one, as the more time spent with the screen off, the less time you’re using it, thereby using less power.

Update Your Operating System

Your device’s operating system governs how it functions, so it’s natural that the OS will also play a part in its battery life. If you update your operating system, there is a good chance it can improve your battery life by using the energy available in a more efficient and optimized manner.

Use Sleep Mode

Most devices will have a mode available where the screen is turned off and the background processes come to a halt until you’re actively using it again. Sleep mode can be an effective way to keep your battery charged, and it even acts like a pseudo-security measure by requiring a password to disengage.

Cut Down On Notifications and Location Services

Depending on the apps you’re using, you can probably turn off notifications and location services, if only temporarily, to conserve some battery life. In fact, you might even see your productivity and privacy improve as a result of turning off these services.
