Make your smartphone battery last

Avoid losing charge while you're out and about


We know how annoying it is to run out of battery on your phone when you’re out and about, so here are some top tips to help your battery last.

  • Reduce screen brightness: The brighter the setting for the screen, the more battery it needs.
  • Switch off bluetooth when you’re not using it.
  • Switch off Wi-Fi if you don’t intend on using it for a while, as some phones automatically connect to any public network.
  • Access email less often: The less often your phone checks for updates, the less battery it uses.
  • Close apps: Multiple or ‘multitasking’ apps will shorten your phone’s battery life.
  • Disable location-based services: Apps that use GPS are a big drain on your battery.
