How to maximize your cell phone battery life

Battery almost empty

For the last couple of days my cell phone battery has been nearing its end. This prompted me to go look for some solutions how to maximize my battery life. The most common answer was to try and refrain from recharging the gadget when the battery isn’t totally empty. On wikiHow I found other tips, some more useful than others. The tips are split in 2 categories: Increasing time between charges and prolonging the life of the battery. What worked best for me was disabling some features like Bluetooth, vibration, backlight, and also shutting it off when there was no signal since searching for a signal uses a lot of battery energy. I will probably treat my next cell phone battery better now that I found some tips on how to prevent these problems, hope they’ll help you too.
