It’s 7 in the afternoon. You pick up your phone to answer a WhatsApp and suddenly you get a cold sweat: you still have 2 hours to get home and you have less than 15% battery left. Who has never happened to? Although these situations are less and less common, we are going to tell you a few tricks so that that precious asset, the battery of your mobile, does not leave you lying at the least opportune moment.
In recent years we have seen how the capacity of smartphone batteries has grown without stopping and although thanks to the fast charge function (be careful, we will soon publish an article to tell you all about fast charging ) have the battery Low is not so critical anymore, there can always be situations where you need to have an extra duration. This is what you can do:
Optimize your screen to consume less power
The screen is one of the most energy-consuming elements in a mobile. Activate the automatic brightness function of your mobile and adjust it to a level that is comfortable for you. The system will take care of regulating it for you so that it is at an optimal level in any situation.
If you have a mobile with an OLED or AMOLED screen, black wallpapers and dark themes are your friends. Why? Because in this type of screens, when they are showing black colours, they do not consume energy because the pixels are off.
Take care of your battery: charge it in the best possible way
The memory effect of batteries, that enemy that for many years has been stalking our mobiles, is now, fortunately, history, but it is true that, if we take into account some things when charging our battery, it will arrive in better conditions to most of the age.
Fast charging has been a revolution in the industry for when we have an emergency, but if you are not in a hurry, do not use it. A slower charge protects the long-term performance of the battery. Wireless chargers are a perfect option for this task since their charging speed is lower than those of cable. Although you will not be able to use it or move it during the recharging time, it will be more comfortable, since you will not have to connect your mobile to cables, but simply support it on the charging surface. The Celly® 10W wireless charger is convenient and fast. In addition, it has a charging LED in which you can visualize its correct charging function.
But if you are in a hurry and need to charge your smartphone quickly, on tu.com you can find the Celly Charger Red Turbo Charger 4USB that can charge 4 phones simultaneously. Of course, it is important that you make sure that both your software and hardware are compatible with this type of load.
Don’t let it run out completely. We can still carry this old custom, but with lithium batteries, it is not recommended, charge your battery regularly and not when you get close to that dangerous 10%.
Try not to play games or watch videos while charging your phone. Heat is one of the main enemies of the battery, so it is not a good idea to combine the heat generated by the battery charge with the heat generated when we perform high-performance activities on the phone.
For a few years, Android has incorporated a native power-saving mode that many manufacturers customize to add even more functions. Apple also has a similar low power mode.
For example, the “optimized” mode of Samsung phones is usually more than enough, but if one day you think you will need that extra, you can use higher levels of battery saving. Keep in mind that more aggressive power-saving modes can limit the background activity of your apps and you may not receive certain notifications. Check the energy-saving settings of your mobile and choose the one that best suits your style of use.
Check your apps
Within the Android settings menu, you will find a section with battery statistics, where you can see which applications are consuming more power and from where we can put them to sleep. Many times you will be surprised to see applications there that you hardly use, that you installed once a long time ago, but nevertheless, they continue to consume energy. Optimize the number of applications you have installed on your smartphone and activate the option to put applications that you do not open to sleep.
Many applications need to use our GPS to locate us, but for the vast majority we do not need this permission to be running in the background, so choose the option “Only when the application is in use” when it asks for the location permission. Apart from protecting your privacy, this will help you maintain your battery.
Put the mobile on silence
We have the latest in Smartwatches and Smartban ds. If you are the owner of one of these accessories that already notify you of notifications and calls, you do not need your mobile to ring or vibrate every time they send you a message.
