More life for your cellphone…!

Fact 1 — this post has nothing to do with cameras!

Fact 2 — the subject of this post is always at the back of every cellphone user’s mind

So, with the above as footnote, here is what you need to do to eke out the use of your iPhone for as long as possible…like me, I’m sure your phone has conked out at the very time you need it most!

1 Turn down the brightness level when you can.

2 If you need even more juice, shut off wireless connections such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

3 We were always told to discharge your battery all the way every time you used it. That went away in the 1990s, when we started using lithium-ion. Even so, it’s still a good idea to exercise a battery once a month: Run it until the device turns off, and then charge it until full. That will keep it charging up to capacity.

4 Kill background app updates.
The last thing you need when your battery life is hanging on for dear life is some random photo app you downloaded three months ago sucking the life out of your phone while it updates.

Turn it off by going to Settings → iTunes & App Store. Scroll down, and under a section called Automatic Downloads you’ll see Updates. Turn that off. But, remember, this means you’ll need to either update your apps manually or remember to turn this feature on again when you’re at a full charge.

5 Switch off wi-fi, Bluetooth and location services, until such a time when you really need them.

These are a few of the most draining functions that kill battery life…for more tips, click here

ME & MY PASSION! ok, you probably looked at the length of this "about me" page and thought, god, what's wrong with this guy!....does he have to start telling us his life story or something!!? well, youve come here now anyways, so why not hear what im like as a person, eh? ive been using film cameras for well over 30 first one being the family yashicamat twin lens! over the years, ive both bought sold and collected film cameras...too many to tell the truth! in fact, ive been buying and selling cameras well before the internet came on the scene, so anything you purchase from me is backed by my self-styled moneyback promise.....if you dont like what youve bought, send it back within 14 days and you get all your money arguments!! WHERE I STAND ON THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION! yes, i do use digital as well, but only as a ready-reckoner...i try and take most shots with my simple 2megapixel digicam....if the shot looks good, i pull out my film camera and shoot! i most defintely do not believe in digital manipulation of photographs....that in my eyes is not photography...its cheating! WHERE I USED TO LIVE, WHERE I AM NOW & WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO DO! i used to live in Ontario, Canada, but moved back to the UK a little while ago (its a long story..!)...but now i'm living in the one place i always wanted to be...Vancouver, BC..the next best thing to paradise on earth! as i work as a freelance writer as well as other things, i often find hat my work takes me to europe for short spells, so i get to travel a lot...not a blessing, as i just hate long flights! im a qualified Quality Assurance guy (you know...ISO 9000, auditing, documentation etc) ....99% of my skill-set is transferable so i can handle any admin or documentation-related roles....see you in BC! otherwise, i specialise in ISO 9000 auditing and documentation. my dream? to have my own thriving camera shop in Vancouver BC, whilst living in the mountains somewhere.....the best of both worlds!

  1. …and here’s an even better idea: kill the cellphone itself!!! [Semi] joking! I must be a rare case of a cellphone owner with the internet connection switched off! Your energy saving tips are valuable! Have a great Thursday!

    • ..and i agree entirely!
      cellphones are a bane of modern life…i actually hate being available virtually any time of day to anybody who may want to talk about stuff, trivial stuff most of the time!
      in the rare cases when cellphones can be lifesavers, mostly they’re an irritation!
      but tnks for taking the time out to read and reply, Marina!
