How To Save Battery On Your iPhone or iPod Touch

<p><span><span> </span>Is your iPhone or iPod Touch's battery level always depleting quickly? Do you not have enough juice to get you through the day? Here are some quick tips to conserve your battery life and help you get through the day while you are Facebooking, sending texts, and calling.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>First, lets make sure you can monitor your batter level. This is how you will turn on the percentage of battery display.</span><br /> <p><span>1.<span> </span></span><span>Go to your home-screen.</span><br /> <p><span>2.<span> </span></span><span>Open up the Settings App.</span><br /> <p><span>3.<span> </span></span><span>Tap General then Usage</span><br /> <p><span>4.<span> </span></span><span>Where it says battery percentage, make sure the switch is in the on position.</span><br /> <p><span><span> </span>Now that you can monitor your battery life, here are a few things you should continually do to save battery.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Don't keep multiple apps running if you don't have to. iPhones and iPod Touches have multitasking to run multiple apps at once, but this can use a lot of battery. To delete tasks, double tap the home button and then hold down an icon at the bottom of the screen. Once the apps begin to wiggle, tap the X by the app to stop the task (note: this won't delete the app, it will only stop it from running).</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another battery saving setting is not fetching email quite as often, I mean, do you really need to check your email every 15 minutes or hour? Fetching data uses a lot of battery, to disable or not as frequently fetch for data, go to the Settings app again. Go to Mail, Contacts, Calendars then Fetch New Data and set it to Manually so to check email, go to the email app and click the refresh button.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Your iPhone has an adjustable brightness, and a higher brightness wastes more battery, to change the brightness: go to your Settings app. Go to Brightness and turn your brightness down. You don't necessarily need to turn it all the way down(especially when you are in bright lighting conditions, kind of ironic that you need higher brightnesses in brighter environments), but if you are in a pitch black room, then there is no reason to have the brightness above the minimum level.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good habit is turning off bluetooth and wifi when you are not using them, to do this, go to your Settings app again. Go to Wi-Fi and turn of wifi. To turn of bluetooth, go to General then Bluetooth and turn it off.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>If you don't necessarily use an app a lot or at all, turn off Push Notifications. To do this scroll all the way down on your Settings app, and choose that particular app. This will only be useful on an app that gets information from the internet. In the particular app that you chose, usually there will be a Push Notifications option, and you can disable this, this will help your battery because your iPhone constantly tries to search for data with these on. Also, when installing apps, you can disable this then.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>Another good way to save battery (iPhone only) is to switch from the 3g(fast internet)radio to Edge(slower internet) radio. On the iPhone, you have twice as much battery with Edge radio. To change between the two, go to your Settings app once again. Go to General then Network and where it says Enable 3g switch it to off. You can/should do this when you aren't heavily surfing the internet, checking Facebook, or downloading apps. Don't use this with apps that require heavy internet usage.</span><br /> <p><span>&bull;<span> </span></span><span>One final tip to conserve battery is changing the amount of time until the iPhone/iPod Touch goes into sleep mode. If you forget to put it in sleep mode, it will stay on and waste battery in your pocket, etc. To change the amount of time to save battery, go to your Settings app again. Go to General then Auto-Lock and change it to something short such as 1 or 2 minutes.</span><br /> <p><span>These tips will significantly prolong your battery, use them to your advantage.</span><br />

How to increase battery life in LG GT505

Feeling tired that after surfing the web or playing a few games, the battery is halfway through to being dead?
So this Tip is for you!
What we're going to do, is put every setting on the minimum so that it doesn't waste battery life that much when you're just typing a SMS.

1 - Open the Menu and click on the last icon (on the right bar) on the bottom. - Settings

2-Open Phone Settings, and slide the Power Save button to turn it ON.

3- Now go back to Settings and go to Screen Settings and choose Brightness. Set it to 0% and Save it (click Yes even if it tells you that you are changing the Power Save Settings)

4 - (Optional) If you don't mind your phone turning off the backlight real quick, you can change the amount of time it stays on, but if you send or read a lot of messages, it can become a bit annoying, so it's really up to you! Anyway, in Settings, choose Screen Settings, then Backlight, and choose whatever time suits you. Keep in mind, that the lower the time stays on, the more it saves up battery life.

Imagine you just made a phone call, then put the phone on your pocket. For some time, it's backlight is on for a long time, maximum brightness and you're not even looking at the phone. That's a waste of battery power!

Using those new settings, you can get up to 3 days battery while playing a fair amount of games!

Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery...

Apple iPhone Battery Saving Guide
The Apple iPhone doesn't have the best battery life in the world but if you follow this simple guide it should provide you with a longer battery life.

1. Turn down the brightness: You can reduce the battery consumption by turning down the brightness of the screen. Select Settings, Brightness, and then drag the slider to around the 25 percent mark, or as low as you can stand.

2. Turn Wi-Fi and Bluetooth off: From the main menu, tap Settings, Wi-Fiand select the "Off" switch. Same goes with Bluetooth; if you're notusing a Bluetooth headset, make sure the Bluetooth radio is deactivated(Settings, General, Bluetooth).

3. Check e-mail less frequently: If you are using Pop Mail then you can save battery by checking it less frequently. Select Settings, Mail, Auto-Check, and pick either the "every 30 minutes" or (better still) "every hour" options.

4. Sync less frequently: If you sync with an Exchange server either turn it to manual or set it only to check periodically

5. Make sure "Auto-Lock" is on: TheiPhone will keep its bright screen burning unless you manually pressthe lock/sleep control. If you haven't already, make sure the iPhone's"Auto-Lock" feature is on: tap Settings, General, Auto-Lock, and then pick a time interval (the shorter the better).

6. Turn off the equalizer: Apple has always suggested turning off the iPhone’s built-in equalizer to conserve battery life. Tap Settings, iPod, Equalizer, then spin the roulette wheel up to Off.

Tips & Review on Nokia 5300 XpressMusic

Nokia 5300 is a great music phone,but it can be regrated on that the battery life is so short.So I've come up with this tips and tricks that can help you save some juice out of your phone.Love the loudspeaker but don’t abuse it so much it might become unfunctional.Don’t set the volume to the maximum level when playing through the loudspeaker.I found the radio better and clearer when playing through the loudspeaker than the music player because the loudspeaker omits more treble than the bass.
Camera Tips:
1. Always set the NIGHT MODE option especially on night shots
2. Set the White Balance to Daylight – When outdoors (Day) Fluorescent – When indoors
3. For acceptable shots, set the resolution to 800 x 600.
NOTE: Using the camera will put up a big drain on your battery.
Battery Tip:
- Don’t always use the camera. Only when needed.
- Set Packet Data Connection to When Needed. Setting can be found on Settings>Connectivity>Packet Data
- Always turn on the Power Saver Feature.
- Turn off your Bluetooth when not in use.
- Turn off screensavers (These are only battery wasters)
- Always make sure that the phone has adequate signal. (If the phone is searching for signals, it drains a big part of the battery)
- I know its fun to play games, but it can decrease your battery so fast.
- The best of all,carry an extra battery if you’re a heavy user.

I think this tip can be helpful. Thank you Everyone.

How do you shut down the apps you dont use or want , batterywont last till noon . any way to adjust the power of vibrate and make ring louder cant hear or feel it if not holding in in your hand

Go to Android Marketplace and search for "Watchdog Lite". Install the app and follow the tutorial for setting threshold to the highest setting. The app will alert you when an app/process is using too much processor percentage which = battery use. stay on top of killing the "misbehaving" apps and that should extend the life of your battery. Also, turn off your bluetooth capabilities and gps capabilities when not in use. This should also increase battery life

Good Luck!

How can I improve my iPhone's battery life?

A recent research conducted on cellphones (smartphones) revealed that most of your battery life is drained by "Internet" and "calls". The more you use your phone for any of these two, the faster your battery drains. Next on the list is "Search for network" which consumes quite a bit of your battery power.
Smaller culprits are WiFi, Bluetooth, Screen brightness, themes, Vibration, etc.
* Reduce screen brightness to minimum
* turn off WiFi/3G/4G when not required (same with Bluetooth)
* if you are out of network area, turn off the mobile network so you cell doesn't keep searching for a network.
* If possible reduce internet usage on your cell phone to improve battery life (ie. if you have a laptop handy, use it!)
* Use a darker wallpaper
* Vibration takes up more battery than ringtones
* use a simple theme
* Dont keep your cell phone charging for long periods (eg. overnight)
* If you plan to buy a new battery, buy a branded authentic one
Hope this helped, thanks for using FixYa!
