Maximise Your Smartphone’s Battery Life

 

Discharged batteries are one of the many modern day miseries in our digital lives. However, by following some simple steps and taking a little bit of extra care, you can extend and maximise your phone’s battery life. These tips include avoiding complete discharging of battery and uninstalling the power-consuming applications. 

As all leading smartphone makers are striving to make their devices thinner and lighter, the users are not getting expected improvements in the battery life. The average battery life of a charged device that’s moderately used is about a day. As removable batteries are becoming rarer, people are extra cautious about them.

But, why does your smartphone battery keeps dying so fast? The answer to this question revolves around multiple factors that you must know to take care of your battery. Apart from heavy applications that love to suck the battery juice, temperature extremes also act as a major cause of your battery’s unfortunate death.

Tips to maximise your phone’s battery life

Just like the laptop battery myths, there are several wrong theories that one needs to discard. So, here are some facts and tips, based on science, that one should keep in mind to maximise the life of your smartphone battery —
  1. Avoid extreme heat or cold: You might be knowing that batteries hate high temperature and they start to fail. The upper limit of a smartphone or laptop battery is about 70°C to 90°C. But, you should avoid exposing your battery to such high temperature. All parts of your smartphone–processor, screen, different chips–produce heat. Coupled with the environment’s temperature, these factors become the number one enemy of your battery. Few of you might be knowing that smartphones also hate extreme low temperatures. So, avoid leaving your smartphone exposed to low temperature for a long period.
  2. Avoid full discharges: Modern batteries, which are mostly Lithium Ion batteries, have no memory effect. So, you should avoid discharging them completely. When battery’s charge gets too low, they get unstable and dangerous to charge. You should discharge the battery to 35-75% before charging it again. So, as a common practice, try to charge your battery as soon as it hits 30% mark and avoid discharging it completely.
  3. Store batteries at 50% charge: You shouldn’t leave your smartphone battery completely discharged for a long period of time. If you leave a completely discharged battery for weeks, it may not hold the charge for a long time. The best practice to extend your phone’s battery life is storing it at 50% charge. This rule applies to both batteries in devices and the spare batteries.
  4. Don’t keep it plugged in for too long: This is a debatable issue and we have covered laptop’s case in the past. While your modern smartphone battery doesn’t consume energy once it’s fully charged, it might get heated up in the process. So, the general opinion is that one should avoid leaving the smartphone plugged in for too long.

Some other tips to extend smartphone’s battery life

Apart from the overheating and charging issues, you can also maximise your phone’s battery life by killing the unnecessary activities that drain your battery. Here are some simple tips:
  • Turn on the automatic brightness adjustment feature
  • Take a look at your phone’s power usage pattern
  • Turn off Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and locations when not in use
  • Use widgets to easily toggle the above-mentioned settings
  • Disable continuous sync feature in apps
  • Use task manager to kill the apps
  • Disable/delete the unnecessary apps
  • Use apps to kill entire data connection when not in use
  • Disable animated wallpapers and widgets

  3. Grams itself is a brand on the Darknet so I believe not much needs to be said about it. Grams Helix is one of its subsidiaries and is one of the most reputed and widely used Blender.io services out there, it’s simple, modern, and definitely trustworthy. Grams supports only Bitcoins for now. It needs 2 confirmations before it cleans and sends you your coins. It obviously supports time-delay, but it’s automatically set to “2 hours” for some reasons. It also supports “Random transactions” for the deposit, the deposit address changes after each transaction and allows you to send more than 1 transactions to Grams Helix instead of sending in all your coins in a single go. The same is also supported for the “output addresses” (where you receive coins) and you can input as many as 5 different BTC addresses where your coins are sent after cleaning them. The coin-deposit address is valid for 8 hours, and any transaction not done within these 8 hours won’t be received by the platform. The principle of operation of the resource is that Blender.io sends coins of all users to a single account, mixes them, and then distributes coins to users. You get the same amount (minus commission) of already cleared bitcoins, including several from different parts of the blockchain. Which makes it almost impossible to analyze it. The mixer also sends you a letter of guarantee. This letter of guarantee is a confirmation of the obligations of BitMix biz and that the service has generated an address for the user to send. This email is always signed from the main bitcoin account Blender.io (publicly available at BitMix biz). The service also uses a unique code of 12 characters, after that, this user will never receive exactly his own coins back. Save this code it will be needed for the affiliate program. BitMix biz includes an affiliate program and pays users when they bring other users to the platform. You will receive a fee for every transaction you refer to. BitMix biz’s robust privacy policy is backed by several points: No registration and identity verification required. Transaction history is deleted after 72 hours. The randomization function makes the analysis of the protocol more difficult. Tor browser support. best bitcoin mixer runs on the Darknet and is one of the most popular Bitcoin toggle switches. This dark service uses new technology, it doesn’t just clean up your coins, you get brand new coins that have never been on the dark web. The cleaning process can take no more than 4 hours. To carry out cleaning on Helix in the basic version of Grams, you need to register, in the versions of Helix Light and Helix Market this is not necessary. If you still decide to use the Grams version, you will have to pay an entrance fee of 0.01 BTC. Helix has an additional feature (Auto-Helix) that allows you to specify which addresses your coins will be mixed with when they are credited to your account. Helix also enforces a “no log” policy, all logs are deleted automatically after 7 days or by the user immediately after completion of the output. Helix has a third party server not connected to Grams. A number of Bitcoin client programs that he uses are located on a completely separate server from Helix and Grams. Even if Grams is attacked or compromised, Helix will not be affected.
