Bangalore: How many of us carry our smartphone charger where ever we go! Many of us have faced frustrating situations where we wanted our phone the most and the screen suddenly said “Battery Low” and went black. Well for your information you are not alone in this battle against fast draining batteries. It’s an ugly truth that the battery technology didn’t grow with the same phase of all other mobile technology. So what we can do to save battery is, implement these few tips that might help you boost your Smartphone’s juice.

1. Display

In your smartphone the biggest battery drainer is your display! Surprised. Well don’t be. If the display brightness is on 100, then battery getting drained out soon is natural. So if you want to address the fast battery drainage problem in your smartphone, you need to reduce the brightness level of the screen. The relation between your battery life and the brightness of your phones are inversely proportional to each other.

Every phone especially smartphones come with the option of setting the backlight of the phone to automatic brightness. Most of the time we use our phones indoors and not under direct sunlight hence we don’t need to have the brightness level set high.

Phones also come with the time out option. So it is always advisable to set the screen light time out option to 15 – 30 seconds. The normal default timeout is 30 minutes which is another reason for your battery getting drained out soon.
