5 Tips For Saving Your Cell Phone Battery Life

People constantly use their cell phones whether at home or on the go. With this, saving your cell phone battery life during the day is essential, especially if you don’t have time to charge it.

Here are our top 5 tips to save your phone battery life.

1. Decrease Screen Brightness

Having your screen brightness turned all the way up isn’t the best thing for your battery. It may help you see the screen better but will cause your power to get drained. All you have to do to prevent this is simply decrease your screen brightness level. This action will also help prevent eye strain when you spend too much time looking at your phone screen

2. Close Apps You Are Not Using

Do you leave a lot of apps running?


Having too many apps running on your smartphone is a leading cause of cell phone battery drain. Simply close any apps including background apps that you are not currently using. Get in the habit of closing apps when you are finished using them. 

3. Use Monitoring Software To Track Your Phone Use

Monitoring software is highly useful in knowing what you are doing on your phone on a daily basis. This includes knowing exactly how often you are using your apps and the amount of time you spend on them. For example, it can track how long you browse your news feed on Facebook. By being aware of your app use and duration, you will be more conscious of it and use them less. A monitoring software that we highly recommend is DDI Utilities.

4. Turn Off Wi-Fi When Not Using It

Be careful of leaving your Wi-Fi on.

Using private Wi-Fi when you are at home or work is completely fine. However, when you stop using this Wi-Fi, make sure to turn it off and use your 3G or 4G network. If you leave your Wi-Fi setting on at all times, your battery will be drained since your phone is constantly searching for an available network.

5. Decrease Use Of Power Draining Apps

If you go into your phone’s app settings, you can see how much power and data your apps are using. By seeing this, you can uninstall, shut-off/stop, and lessen the use of certain apps that are impacting your battery life. The most known power draining apps include Netflix, Spotify, and Snapchat.  

By following these 5 tips, you will be able to save your phone battery for when you need it most.
