Your iPhone is more than a smartphone, it’s your friend. It keeps you connected and entertained day in and day out. With this in mind, it’s important that you keep it alive with a charged battery so that it doesn’t let you down in time of need.
Ideally, a fully-charged iPhone battery should last from morning ’til night on a full charge, but sometimes it’s easy to use up that power once you start getting into applications and all the fun stuff they can do. Generally, your iPhone battery should give you 5 hours of talk time or 5 hours of web browsing on a 3G iPhone. Unfortunately, however, the batteries don’t always last as long as advertised. To help keep you connected all the time, we’ve put together 5 helpful ways so you can squeeze more juice from your iPhone battery.
1) Carry Your Charger. It’s always a smart idea to keep your charger on you at all times. This will keep you from ever completely losing total power. This may seem a bit obvious, but this way, you can plug in and keep connected any time you need.
2) Be Aware of What Features Use the Most Power. Video Playback uses a lot of power for instance. Keeping a constant connection to the internet will also put a strain on your battery. Asking for constant checks for emails and such will also drain your battery quicker. Give your iPhone fewer accounts to look through so you can save power.
3) Completely Drain Your battery at Least Once a Month. This will make sure that you are using the battery’s full capacity.
4) Use the Airport Mode. It will help eliminate some services that will use up a lot of battery power.
5) Re-charge. Most batteries work best by quick charging during the first part of the connection, then once charged, it switches over to a trickle charge. When disconnecting, its good to plug it in again for a blast of more energy just to make sure you’ve completely filled up.
