In this twenty first century mobile phones they are the second important thing required for a human being after breath. These days everybody is so busy in their respective life, that it very much difficult for them to continuously check whether their phone’s battery is having sufficient amount of juice or not especially while travelling.

And as we all know this is a smart phone era. The biggest and the only unsolved problem in this field is battery drain out. Smart phones are now capable of scanning your fingerprint, can detect whether you are seeing towards the phone or not and many more unbelievable things but the battery backup problem is yet to be resolved.

If you are a smart phone user (Android / IOS / Windows Phone) then kindly go through these simple steps.

  1. step1 (In Urgent situation only)
  2. step2 (you have to check on regular basis)
  3. step3 (solution of hardware related problems)

Step1 :

1.       Turn off the vibration mode :

For vibration operation every phone uses a tiny device which is also a major player in draining the battery of your smart phone.

2.       switch off or flight mode :

in case of extreme urgency e.g. During travel simple switch off your handset or else if you use your smartphone as a music player then opt for flight mode. Actually our cellular devices checks for signal reception from base stations on continuous basis which drains the battery.

3.       Do not let the phone to completely discharge or over charge :  

This is basically a misconception among users that completely discharging or overcharging the battery will boost its health, but sadly it is not true instead it reduces the charge storing capability of it unlike the nickel AA batteries.

4.       Turn off WLAN features ,Bluetooth & GPS :

Turning off WLAN features (like wi-fi ), Bluetooth, LTE & GPS boosts the battery life significantly as all these features continuously consumes battery.

5.       Turn automatic synchronization of mail and automatic updating of apps off :

By turning off the automatic Synchronization stops the phone from continuously checking mails which uses both internet connection and processor effort ultimately results in battery drainage and the same case with automatic updating of apps feature.

6.       Turn flight mode on in poor signal areas :

In poor signal areas what actually happens is the phone uses more power in order to get connected to the channel.

Step2 :

1.       Use power management software(Use built in or download some) :

The main work of power management software is it will inform you about running apps and the features which are not required like GPS, Bluetooth etc.

2.       Use the ‘automatic’  option for setting brightness :

Actually the screen itself is the biggest consumer of phones battery. While setting brightness use the ‘Automatic’ selection because it uses a light sensor present in the front surface of the phone to set the brightness (E.g. in dark conditions it will reduce the brightness to minimal level and vice versa)

3.       Use dark background wallpapers whenever possible :

This trick is most effective for the phones which use AMOLED display tech in which for the display of black color the Leds are completely off which results in almost negligible consumption of power while displaying a completely dark thing on the screen.

4.       Use an efficient RAM manager in the phone :

Here you will think how come the RAM manager is related to battery life enhancement purpose, but yes it is true. When heavy graphic intensive apps run in the background it consumes a lot of power by heating the phone. What a RAM manager performs is whenever it detects that a bulky app is running in the background for a longer period of time it will stop that app or else will inform you.

Step3 :

1.       Completely charge a Li-on battery before its first use :

This thing many people neglect even though it is clearly written inside the manual. By doing so we are activating all the tiny charge storage chambers present in a proper way or else it may reduce the storage capability to some extent.

2.       Keep the battery cool :

You might have observed that while charging sometimes the phone heats up, avoid such situation by simply cleaning the contact between the battery and your phone. If still the problem arises then refer to the service center.

3.       Replace the battery if its life span is over :

A Lithium-ion battery works for a specific time period. Now the question is how the user will detect that his/her phone’s battery needs a replacement or not. Some common symptoms of a faulty battery are ‘charge storing capability reduces significantly’, ‘thickening of the battery’ etc. If you will find any such symptom then go for a new cell.
