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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Store often used data offline
This habit kills two birds with one stone: downloading often used data such as maps, music and photo’s decrease the battery drain caused by using cellular data while at the same time reducing the amount of data you spend.
Enjoy using your cellphone while still saving energy next time!
