Nowadays almost everyone has a cellphone, and every one of these needs regular charging. Even though charging your cellphone isn’t a large drain on your energy footprint, we think knowing how to save energy using any method is a valuable skill to posses. This is our top 3 of cell phone energy saving tips.

  1. Disable unnecessary features
    Try disabling Bluetooth, GPS (Location Services) and 4G/3G when not in use. Most smartphones feature control centers to quickly disable common features.
  2. Tone down your screen brightness
    The number one battery drain is without a doubt the screen backlight. Setting it to ‘auto‘ helps, and setting the default to around 50% ensures sufficient readability and some nice savings.
