5 Battery Killing Mistakes We Make Daily

08 Oct

The features of our Smartphones
wouldn’t let us leave it for an hour
without trying to delve into something
fun or conventional. The batteries in our
cell phones are the highest specs we wish
and hope for – The bigger the milliamp
hours, the bigger the lasting power.
When it comes to lasting batteries, we
always and will always want to lay our
hands on such devices. Devices like the
Tecno L8 and L6 comes with monster
battery capacity: but if your Smartphone
comes with an average battery capacity,
there are still ways to improve its
capacity.
1. Turning On Wi-Fi Hotspot
When browsing the web, most of us
intentionally or unintentionally switch on
our Wi-Fi hotspot without spotting the
battery logging. It’s a great battery
drainer especially if there’s no device (s)
connected to it.
And also turn off your WiFi network !!!
only turn it on when there’s a WiFi
network available in your area.
2. GPS
Switching off your device location on your
device would greatly reserve your
battery’s life. Most apps requires GPS
location to be turned on for application
access, try restricting them once in a
while to save your battery and also
extend its life cycle.
3. Screen Brightness
Apart from draining your vision (eyes)
with excessive bright screen light.
Increasing your phone’s screen light to
maximum can drastically reduce your
battery’s life.
Try setting screen’s brightness to auto or
middle to save your eyes & vision. Also
trying scheduling the screen timeout from
30 seconds to a minute to increase
battery life and duration.
4. Charging
Okay, most of us usually make this
mistake when it comes to charging our
devices.
When using your device, do not let your
battery’s power drain constantly to 5 or 0
percent all the time. Sometimes full
draining of the battery causes swelling
and also reduces the battery life cycle – i
bet you never knew!
And always ensure 100% full charge of
your battery before unplugging, leave
your device 20 minutes after 100%
charge.
5. Background Apps Activities
The activities of our devices in background
drains our battery faster than activities in
foreground.
How
When you receive messages from
WhatsApp while reading this article, it
certainly means that WhatsApp is running
on your device background while GKlited
is on its foreground.
Try to stop background processes.
On Android, go to Developer options >>
scroll to the bottom, under Apps >>>
press Background
process limit >>> set to any number of
your choice.
For Android devices from 4.4 KitKat ,
press build number for ten times to open
developers option.
