From desktop computers to portable devices, we are in a world of technology. We have been given the power to simply click our phones now to use GPS for directions, sending an email while away from the computer to even finding out the most random facts like how many calories are burnt banging your head against the wall for an hour.
But with all this new technology available and ready to use it also means the consequence of battery life. All that technology squished into a device means a squished in battery to support such features.
If you are constantly struggling with low battery woes, try out the following tips:
- Dim your display where you can. Work with a screen with as low a brightness setting as possible. Dropping the brightness can save serious power.
- Make sure you are patched and secure. If you are using a laptop you should also make sure your anti-virus software is up to date.
- Disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth because both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi are quite chatty and constantly seeking out new connections if none are present.
- Close apps and browser tabs because they are all burning power just maintaining themselves. You’ll not only save system resources such as processing power by shutting them down, making your system run faster, but also power as well.
Consider replacements for batteries or devices because no matter how careful you are, your battery performance will degrade over time.
Banging your head against a wall uses 150 Calories an hour in case you were still wondering. :)
