Do you have numerous devices running on batteries?  With summer here we are out and about and don’t always have an easy way to recharge them, so extending how long the battery lasts can be crucial.

  1. The biggest drain on most batteries is the display, keep the brightness as low as possible.
  2. If you are not using Bluetooth or wireless, have it disabled. The same applies for location services.
  3. Make sure any app you are not using is closed. Even if you are not using the app, if it is open in the background, it will still be running and using up the battery.

If you are still experiencing your device’s battery draining quickly, many hand held devices such as phones and tablets, have a feature that will show you what has been using your battery over the last 24hrs or 7 days. There you can look for anything unusual (i.e. apps you’re not using a lot but are using up a large % of your battery).
