- How to manage and avoid Low Batter issue
The frequent notice of “Low Battery” is one of the most annoying things any mobile user in Nigeria can experience.
Well, carrying a power bank around can help reduce this, but what if there was a method to prevent it in the first place?
Though people say that there are apps on the Google play store and Apple store that can help as a booster.
Checheblogs made some research on ways to make your mobile phone battery last longer.
Below are tricks on how to manage and avoid Low Batter issues.
Manage your connectivity
Mobile data is the most consuming of all connectivity on a mobile phone. WiFi consumes lesser, while Bluetooth may also consume more ― not as much as mobile data. To conserve your battery, always switch off all/any connectivity whenever they are not in use.
Avoid using the phone while charging
Forget about the fear of being electrocuted, using your phone while charging makes the battery overheat and this may affect the recharge cycle of the battery and ultimately the battery life span.
Switch to 2G if Possible
This can be funny, especially as the world is moving towards 5G broadband. When you are in an area with a good cellular network and you are not doing anything that will require a strong internet connection on your phone, switch your network to 2G or 3G. It makes the phone battery last longer.
To put things in a better perspective, WhatsApp messaging can be efficiently done over a 2G/3G broadband. However, don’t try this when you need to perform actions like YouTube streaming. It is advisable to use 4G as it processes data faster and save the time and battery 3G would use in trying to load contents.
Reduce/Sleep background apps
Background apps drain the battery. Always sleep apps that are not in use. You can check your phone settings to perform this action. Some Apps like Chrome browser are not expected to be running in background. WhatsApp is understandable since you will always want to be kept abreast of latest messages
Have a smaller phone
Phone call is another feature on smartphones that consume battery. Having a smaller phone can help in answering of calls, texting and replying of messages and so on. It can take the load off your major gadget which can be reserved for all internet activities.
Avoid weak WiFi connection
The weaker a WiFi connection, the more battery your phone is likely to use to power the connection. A stronger WiFi will allow your phone to load contents faster, while a weak signal will perform otherwise.
You may end up burning more battery than data. However, WiFi will always consume a lesser battery than a 4G connection.
