1 1. Turn off your phone
Not using your cell phone? Just turn it off! This is a simple way to conserve battery life. Ideal times to do this would be at right before you go to bed or after business hours. Also, if you usually find yourself in an area with little to no reception (i.e. in a subway station or remote area), be sure to power down.
2 2. Follow the full charge, full discharge method
Don’t charge your cell phone intermittently throughout the day! Wait until you’re it’s about to die and then charge it. It’s very important to let it charge to 100 percent. Be sure to do this on a daily basis.
3 3. Switch from vibrate to ring tone
Did you know the vibrate function uses additional battery power? Try turning your ring tone volume as low as possible instead of resorting to vibrate.
4 4. Avoid using unnecessary apps
Know that you’re running low on juice or it will be a while until your next charge? Avoid browsing the web, using the camera or playing a game.
5 5. Keep those calls short and sweet
Yes- this is an obvious, but very affective tip! Sure, it will take some time convincing friends and family that you’re keeping calls short to save battery life (WARNING: this will come off like an excuse to end a call early), but you’ll be amazed at how long you’ll prolong your battery life.
