How to Make Your Smartphone Battery Last Longer

There is nothing more irritating than needing to use your cellphone and the battery is dead. Here are some tips to help your battery last longer:

Smartphone batteries weren't meant to last forever. But replacing the battery in many new phones can be costly. Apple, for example, charges $79 if your iPhone isn't covered under warranty or AppleCare+. By rethinking how you charge and store your device, you can prolong battery life and save money.

For starters, extreme temperatures, especially heat, are bad for the battery. (Apple recommends protecting your phone from temperatures higher than 95 degrees.) Especially when your phone is fully charged, the hotter it is, the worse it is for the battery. "Treat it like your pet," says Anne Co, a chemistry professor at Ohio State University. Don't leave your phone in your car on hot or cold days, or exposed to the scorching sun at the beach.

Keep your eye on the little indicator that shows how much battery capacity is left. Draining the battery to zero stresses it; better to juice up your device before it hits a 30% to 40% charge. BatteryUniversity.com, an educational website, estimates that a battery that runs down completely before recharging will last for 300 to 500 charge cycles, whereas regular half-charges will amp up the battery to 1,200 to 1,500 cycles.

 

I love real estate there is no greater feeling than seeing your customer's happy!!!

Closing all your apps will also make it last longer.  Closing the gps and locator apps are the most important ones.

Wish I had these suggestions prior to my just replacing mine. Still, even with a new battery, the phone doesn't hold a charge as long as it did when new. Another mystery to try to figure out, cheers cvc

These are some great tips.  I sometimes have to re-charge mid-day if it is a chatty day!

I try not to give mine a chance to run down. When at my desk, I have the phone plugged in. When in the car I also keep it plugged in and... I go no where without a cord and brick. At night it also plugged in. Extreme temperatures...not a concern..my phone is clipped to my waist...never in the car alone.

Thanks Pat Champion this sounds like my next blog.
