Turn Off The Dual Mode Or The 3G

The chips in your devices are SO battery drainers. There are two main reasons to power off the 3G if your devices offer you that option. First, if you are using the internet, it is not compulsory to have that ability, so save your battery power instead. Second, power off the 3G, which will also reduce the number of calls dropped that can happen when going from a 3G area to EDGE. There are some devices there might be only one bar of 3G, but full bars of GSM strength.  Still, since the device is set up to look for 3G it does not care to see how good the reception really is, thus causing calls to drop.

Stay In Places Of Good Signal

While it might sound odd for saving your battery life, this is in fact so important! When your device is in places or little or no signal, the phone will be constantly searching for a better signal.  If that happens, then your device might quickly drain the battery. If you are in a place where there is limited coverage and are not desperate to make a call, either switch off your phone completely or power on the “airplane mode”, which prevents your device from looking for phone towers.

Keep Your Device In Cool and Out Of The Sun

If, however, it overcharges for up to a week,  then battery become overheated. This will cause permanent damage to your battery. So do not leave it on the charge and keep the device out of the sun.

No Use The Vibrate Mode

Ringtone with high volume and those beep – beep sounds when you press the keypad every time are also power users.

Don’t Use The Screensavers and Moving The Wallpaper

The movements will also use extra energy and power. So, while they look so good, think twice before you use it as it will consume your battery power too.

Change Packet Data Access To ” Use Only When Needed”

When packet data access is power ON always, It means the devices are constantly searching for the internet and ensure a connection is enabled. While this might not reflect on your internet bills, it will surely stain your battery power.
