Did your battery just run out in the middle of the day? Or are you going to put your phone’s pathetic battery to charge after reading this one post? Or were you searching you for a power bank?
You might need to put all those to pause, because the following tricks are going to help you save some juice! Though I cannot promise it to work, our 1 month long research did pay off for 7 out of the 8 phones tested. The tested phones are added at the end of this post.
- Keep your home-screen free from widgets. You might not notice it, but like the general theory that every space needs to be paid for, the form of payment in this case is your battery. Don’t use your clock or weather widgets, because you already have apps for it.
- If you use any high-end graphical games like Asphalt 8, Modern Combat 5 or N.O.V.A. 3, ensure that you restart your phone before using any other app. This refreshes the memory upon boot and hence helps you from losing a lot of battery later on. In any other case, still restart your phone once a day.
- In case you still feel you are losing phone battery, use this app.
- Find out the apps that makes you lose your phone battery from Settings->Battery and uninstall them if you don’t need them.
- Use your “Airplane Mode” if you are a really lonely person or when you are absolutely sure that no one is gonna call you. It also charges your phone a little faster than the “Normal Mode.”
- Avoid using your data connection when unnecessary, use Wifi instead. For every 200 mins of Wifi used, we could use only 140 mins of our 3G connection in our experiment.
- Do not use any other battery-saving apps or anti-viruses as they don’t really help and end up spreading malware.
- Do not overcharge your phone. I mean, do not keep your phone on charging for whole nights, as this reduces the capacity of the battery in the long term.
- Finally, if none of the above techniques work, rush to a store near you and buy a new phone battery.
