Transcript:How to Maintain Your Cell Phone Battery
Hi, I’m Nick and today for About.com, I’m going to teach you some tips for making the battery last longer on your phone. As phones evolve and pack more and more features into their arsenal, a hidden cost can be a greatly reduced battery life. How can you ensure that you never get caught short when you need your phone the most?
Limit Features that Drain Battery Life
One of the major benefits of modern phones is the sheer number of apps and features they include. Video and games may be fun to pass the time, but the colors and sounds they emit are a huge drain on battery life. Other energy extensive features include camera functions and Internet connectivity. Try and limit your play time when your need to preserve your battery!
Set Cell Phone to Save Battery Power
If you don’t want to limit your activity on your phone, you can alter your settings to ensure you maximize your battery life. Head to your settings and turn off all unnecessary features. Choose either a ring or vibrate function but never both and pick still image backgrounds if you can. Find the brightness setting and reduce as desired and you can even change how long the screen stays illuminated.
Turn Off Unused Cell Phone Features
Next, have a look at features such as Bluetooth and Infrared functions that can be turned off when not in use. Some phones even have specific ‘power save’ options if you search hard enough, so be sure to check your settings thoroughly. Remember, the less strain your phone is put under, the longer it will work.
Charge the Cell Phone Battery When Necessary
Let’s go over this one more time. Don’t use graphics intensive features such as video and games too often. Keep brightness and sound levels to a minimum. Turn off Bluetooth and other wireless functions when not in use. Keep the room in a cool environment. Finally, try not to let the battery completely discharge and equally, make sure you don’t overcharge it, as this can add extra strain on the battery unnecessarily.
Hope this helps you use your phone for longer! For more information, visit About.com.
