7 hacks to improve your smartphone's battery life

7 hacks om de batterijduur van je smartphone te verbeteren
Are you tired of having to constantly charge your phone? Is the battery life of your phone decreasing rapidly? Here are some tips and tricks that can help you extend the life of your phone battery.


1. Reduce the screen brightness

One of the biggest battery consumers is the brightness of the screen. By lowering the screen brightness you can save a significant amount of battery life. Modern smartphones have an adaptive brightness setting that automatically adjusts the brightness based on the lighting environment. This feature is useful to save battery life as the screen brightness is reduced when the phone is in a dimly lit environment.

2. Turn off the vibration function

Vibration functions are also a big battery drain. Turning off your phone's vibrate function can help extend battery life. Instead of vibrations, you can switch to audible notifications, which require less power.

The reason why vibration functions affect battery life is that they require a motor to run, which consumes power. When the vibration function is turned off, the motor is not used, resulting in longer battery life.

3. Turn off Bluetooth and WiFi

When not in use, it is important to turn off Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. These features continuously search for a signal, which reduces battery life. Disabling these features when not in use can extend battery life.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi affect battery life because they use power to search for a signal. When these features are disabled, the phone does not use power to search for a signal, resulting in longer battery life. If these functions are turned off you can also charge your mobile faster, but if you want to use the optimal speed of a charger, take a look at our MOJOGEAR charger !

4. Use energy saving mode

Most smartphones have a power saving mode that can be activated to extend battery life. When this mode is activated, the phone's performance is reduced and background processes are limited, resulting in longer battery life. By limiting phone performance and background processes, the phone uses less power, resulting in longer battery life.

5. Close apps that are not being used

Apps running in the background consume power and contribute to shorter battery life. Therefore, close apps that are not in use so that they no longer consume power.

Quitting unused apps works well because some apps continue to run in the background and consume power even when you're not actively using them. Closing these apps will stop them completely and stop consuming power.

6. Remove widgets from the home screen

Widgets on the home screen, such as news or weather widgets, can also contribute to shorter battery life. This is because widgets often continuously retrieve and process data in the background, which consumes power. Remove unnecessary widgets from the home screen to extend battery life.
