Increase Battery Life

Smartphones

are best used when you run all your apps, view youtube videos play games. But what if you see the battery beep and its just getting low indicating you to put your device for charge immediately, so most of people face this problem very often may be due to aged battery or increased usage of your device. Some device batteries these days are rated with 5 watt hours, it means that they will sustain till charge of 1 watt or upto five hours. If your phone uses one watt per hour, so you get it to charge at 8:00 a.m, so you can expect it to be dried within afternoon. So First tip is to reduce the applications which are constantly on your handset every hour
Also find below tips to increase the battery health of your smartphone, which should help you to have good battery backup until later day or till night.

2. Enable auto-brightness feature, which will set screen's brightness as pre the lighting levels or system activity.

3. Keep the Screen Timeout Short
On  your mobile display settings menu, you will find an option showing 'Screen Timeout' or similar. This setting will control how long your phone's screen stays lit after receiving input, such as a tap. Every second counts here, so set your timeout to the shortest available time. On most Android phones, the minimum is 15 seconds. If your screen timeout is currently set to 2 minutes, consider reducing that figure to 30 seconds or 15 seconds.

3. Turn Off Bluetooth
This function should be used very carefully because it dries your mobile battery and gives unauthorised access to surrounding users so diabling this function when you're not using it, and your phone's battery will last much longer.

No matter now much you love using Bluetooth in the car or with your hands-free headset, the extra radio is constantly listening for signals from the outside world. When you aren't in your car, or when you aren't expecting a call that you'll want to take via a headset, turn off the Bluetooth radio. (Also walking around with a Bluetooth headset in your ear when you are not really on call or expecting any call) By turning off Bluetooth when you're not using it, you can add an hour or more to your phone's battery life.

4. Turn Off Wi-Fi When Not In Use
wifiUnlike your Bluetooth even Wi-Fi is second most important factor that drains the battery. While you almost certainly should prefer the improved speed of your home or office Wi-Fi connection to your mobile carrier's wireless broadband for data services, there's no point in leaving the Wi-Fi radio on when you're out and about. Toggle it off when you go out the door, and turn it back on only when you plan to use data services within range of your Wi-Fi network. Android users can add the Wi-Fi toggle widget to their home screen to make this a one-tap process.

5. Go Easy on the GPS
Another big battery sucker is your phone's GPS unit, which is a little radio that sends and receives signals to and from satellites to triangulate your phone's location on the Earth's surface. Various apps access your phone's GPS to provide services ranging from finding nearby restaurants to checking you in on social networks. As a user, you can revoke these apps' access to your phone's GPS. When you install them, many apps will ask you for permission to use your location. When in doubt, say no. (And if a game, screensaver, or wallpaper app asks for your location, you should be suspicious about why it wants that data in the first place.)

Multitasking--the ability to run more than one app at a time--is a powerful smartphone feature. It also burns a lot of energy, because every app you run uses a share of your phone's processor cycles. By killing apps that you aren't actually using, you can drastically reduce your CPU's workload and cut down on its power consumption. For Android phones--which are notorious battery hogs due to their wide-open multitasking capabilities--we like an app called Advanced Task Killer, which has an auto-kill feature that polices your apps throughout the day. In iOS, double-tap the Home button until the multitasking tray appears, hold an icon until an X appears, and tap the X to close the app.

7. Don't Use Vibrate
vibrate modePrefer to have your phone alert you to incoming calls by vibrating rather than playing a ringtone? We understand the inclination; unfortunately, vibrating uses much more power than playing a ringtone does. After all, a ringtone only has to make a tiny membrane in your phone's speaker vibrate enough to produce sound. In contrast, the vibration motor swings a small weight around to make your whole phone shake--and that process takes a lot more juice. If you don't want to be disturbed audibly, consider turning off all notifications and leave the phone in view so you can see when a new call is coming in. This approach is as courteous to your battery as it is to your friends and neighbors.

8. Turn Off Nonessential Notifications
It seems as though almost every app in the app store now polls the Internet in search of updates, news, messages, and other information. When it finds something, the app may chime, light up your screen and display a message, make your LED blink, or do all of the above. And all of these things consume energy. Admittedly you likely don't want to turn off notifications about new text messages or missed calls, but you don't need to be instantly alerted that radboy84 has just bested your score at Booty Blast. Turning off superfluous notifications will help your battery last a little longer, and it will eliminate pointless distractions throughout your day.

9. Mind the temperature
Unlike humans ever the battery react to the temperature which has a big impact on your device's functions. If you live in places where the temperature is above 35 degrees Celsius or below 0 degrees Celsius, battery capacity is going to reduce faster. Try and keep the phone or tablet out of direct sunlight, or exposing it to below freezing temperatures, when possible. Extreme heat affects battery capacity a lot more than extreme cold, but both are harmful. Battery University has an excellent guide on prolonging battery health, with a table (see below) to illustrate the effect of temperatures on battery capacity.

10. Partial discharge vs. Full discharge
While you may have heard about letting your device getting fully discharged before plugging in the charger, generally speaking partial discharge cycles are better than full discharge cycles. Not all lithium-ion batteries show these symptoms, but keeping the charge in the 40 to 80 percent range is generally helpful. That means charge your phone when it reaches 40 percent charge, and stop charging it when the battery reaches 80 percent, though you'll need to balance this - and all other advice - with practical usage. So when you are heading out and won't be near a charger for a while, of course charge your device to 100 percent, instead of obsessing about numbers.

11. Don't leave it plugged in all the time
Leaving your devices plugged in at 100 percent is also harmful for battery life. Battery University says overcharging is not good for the battery: "Avoiding full charge has benefits, and some manufacturers set the charge threshold lower on purpose to prolong battery life... Li-ion cannot absorb overcharge, and when fully charged the charge current must be cut off. A continuous trickle charge would cause plating of metallic lithium, and this could compromise safety."

While this advice may be easier to follow with smartphones, and especially tablets, it may not always be practical for laptops. If you are someone you leaves the laptop plugged in all the time, it's going to harm your battery in the long term. It's better to make sure that you're discharging it down to 40 percent every once in a while. On the other hand, discharging the laptop as soon as the battery hits 100 percent will use up your charge cycles sooner, which is not ideal in the long run. The best option is to be practical. Discharge it occasionally, but don't do it so religiously that your laptop is low on power when you are, say, stepping out for a meeting and might need that extra bit of juice.

12. Avoid using ultra-fast chargers
Some devices can be charged faster using certain ultra-fast chargers, but that's not good for your device's health in the long term. Battery University gives sound advice on this topic: "An analogy can be made with an underpowered engine pulling a large vehicle; the stress is too large and the engine will not last."

13. Do not use knock-off chargers
You can get a knock
off charger on the road for Rs. 50, and use it to charge a phone you paid more than Rs. 50,000 for, but we'd advise against it unless you're willing to risk damaging your battery or, worse, actual injury. Apple even had a third party charger trade-in programme to ensure that customers use original chargers.

14. Medium- to long-term storage
If you're not using your device for a while, then you should try to keep the battery at around 50 percent before turning it off. If you're going for a long trip and want to leave your phone in storage, most manufacturers recommend that you should keep it in a cool place (the recommended temperature is under 32 degrees Celsius) and ideally, keep the battery at the halfway mark.

Apple's battery guide mentions that if you plan to store the device for longer than six months, you should charge it to 50 percent every six months. This is something you should do regardless of the brand of the device you are using.

Unfortunately, there's no avoiding the fact that batteries have a finite life, after which they will certainly degrade. Following these basic tips can help delay the inevitable.
