Tips (Garlic) for Preserving Battery Life
on Android Smartphones
- Disable automatic time zones/time and the clock manually, otherwise your device will constantly be requesting location/time data and its almost entirely unnecessary.
- Reduce the push frequency of email/weather/social media.
- Disable wifi/data while playing offline games which present ads. For many apps they will be unable to push you ads during gameplay without a connection.
- Try to charge the battery before it falls below 20%, it’s not good to run them completely dry.
- Use the official chargers for your devices, an aftermarket charger may not charge at the correct voltage or have other deficiencies.
- Charging via a power outlet is often times much more effective than charging via USB.
- When you are done with an app try to actually shut it down instead of pushing it to run in the background.
- Try to avoid playing graphically intense games while charging.
- Try to run a full charge from around 20% to full at least once a month.
- Disable giving location based information to your apps unless necessary (i.e. maps, dating, etc.)
- Turn off your GPS whenever not needed.
- Reduce screen brightness.
- Avoid leaving your phone plugged in once fully charged.
