How to save battery life on you cell phone

In a previous post we gave you some tips on saving your cell phone’s battery life and received such a positive response, we decided to continue with a follow-up.

The demand and expectation to be available and connected at all times, is constantly increasing. However, few things are as frustrating as having to make an important call or send an e-mail and our phone suddenly dies on you.

A dead cell phone battery is inevitable, but you can take small measures to ensure that it does last a little bit longer.

1. Wi-fi, 3G and Bluetooth

If any of these functions are activated by default they will constantly try to connect to any available service or device in the area. If you do need to be connected all the time, disable them and connect when needed.

2. Back light

Do you really need a bright back light on your screen in the middle of the day? Your phone needs energy to generate the light and the brighter the screen, the more battery life you sacrifice. Rather set the light less bright.

3. Apps

Sure, it’s very cool having all the latest apps giving you all sorts of information. Just keep in mind that apps need a lot of power to run.Power you might need to make an important call.

4. GPS

Using your GPS for checking in on Twitter or other social networks may be handy, but it will make a huge dent in your battery life. And when your GPS fails and you get lost, how will you make that call?

5. Alerts

Are you one of those forgetful people who has to reminded of every appointment and task on your list every hour? Notifications on cell phones are very handy, but putting your phone on vibrate and receiving regular notifications take up a substantial amount of power.
