How to make your smartphone battery last as long as possible

whitesmoke_35627724_11_610x436We would never dream of rationing daily smartphone, or tablet use because there’s always a power socket or USB close at hand, but keeping batteries topped up and working well while on holiday is not so simple. With that in mind here are our top tips to squeeze as much use as possible out of your mobile device between charges.

Keep it cool

If venturing to a hot country, the change in temperature is going to have a serious impact on any battery-powered device. Keep phones and tablets out of direct sunlight and heat if possible.

Change the charging routine

When the device is plugged in, make sure you unplug it as soon as the battery meter reads 100%. Keeping a phone or tablet charging any longer creates heat build-up which in turn will damage the battery’s longevity.

Adjust settings

Dimming a device’s screen brightness will increase battery life, as will turning off Bluetooth wifi and GPS. Try using a standard ringtone rather than vibrate and make sure that when an app is not in use it isn’t left open. Unless closed down completely it is still running in the background and therefore putting strain on the device’s processor. If your phone or tablet has a sleep setting, set it for the shortest interval so that it shuts down within 30 seconds of use. Also, don’t use it as a watch: clicking on the homekey or standby key just to check the time can drain the battery.
