Mobile phones and iPods are some of the best things that mobile technology has ever come up with. Now you have instant communication, multimedia and entertainment function right at your fingertip, which makes people use them for a wide variety of reasons. Some are so versatile that you can even surf the Web and download files with the touch of a button. Others use their cellular phones and multimedia devices as great organizing and scheduling tools, where their schedules, appointments and meetings are put into order. There is an endless supply of possibilities for any mobile device user.
But sadly, these functions are still limited by one crucial factor: battery life. No matter how high-tech or advanced your mobile phone or multimedia player is, when the lights go out, they usually stay that way unless you have a charger with you. And this can really be a pain if you’re on a long trip and you’re without any means of charging your gadget. Suddenly all the power that you once had is rendered useless. No music, no pictures, no videos, no organizers and alarm clocks, no web access and most importantly, no calling and text messaging. Talk about being cut off from civilization.
I used to be one of those who just used and abused their gadgets but after finding myself with battery alerts and useless gadgets almost everyday, I decided to change my ways. I discovered that one of the best ways to save some battery life on your new phone is to simply not use it when you don’t need it. Playing games and taking pictures expends a lot of energy and the act of tinkering with your phone for the sake of tinkering can really get your battery low early on in the day. I also learned that closing wireless services like bluetooth, infrared and WiFi when you don’t really need them saves you a lot of usage time. In multimedia devices, the best way to save up on battery life is to avoid using things like equalizers and bass boosts and to avoid skipping tracks very frequently.
These small things may not seem all that much but in the long run, every little bit counts when you want your gadgets to be accessible every time you need them
