Tips on how to Preserve Your Phone’s Battery

November 19, 2018 3 minute read

We’ve all had an experience when our phone has died at a crucial moment, whether we’ve missed out on taking the perfect photo or whether we were lost in a strange city and needed Google Maps to find our hotel. Many of us are so addicted to our smartphones that just the idea of being disconnected leaves us cold and shivery, even if we’re just at home or in the office.

That’s why it’s so important to preserve battery on your smartphone, which is what this article is all about. Of course, there are apps out there that will help you to track usage and to identify ways to streamline your phone and prolong its survival, but there are plenty of other options too.

One of the most obvious ways of prolonging your phone’s battery life is to close any excess programs that are open and to avoid using the device as much as possible. Many phones also come with special energy saving modes that can help to prolong battery life without sacrificing functionality.

Another great way to preserve your phone battery is to reduce your screen brightness and to switch to aeroplane mode. Sure, this reduces the actual functionality of your phone and basically means that you can’t use it, but it will help to prolong the battery life if you’re on a run and you don’t want to stop listening to music. It’s also an alternative to turning your phone off and on, which can drain the battery faster if you’re not careful.

And of course, if all else fails then there’s always the humble external phone charger. There are all sorts of these on the market, with everything from huge external batteries that can recharge phones and laptops several times over to solar-powered chargers and wind-up chargers for festivals and camping trips. The downside to these is that they can be expensive and cumbersome, but they work pretty well as a last resort.

Ultimately, though, it’s better for you to just reduce wastage and to get rid of the apps that are stealing all of your juice. If you can reduce or remove the need to charge then portable chargers won’t even come into it.
