Battery life – the constant concern of cell phone users everywhere. And if you own an iPhone-which functions not only as a communication device but is also capable to run literally hundreds of applications-loss of battery life can feel like the end of the world: your communication world, that is. The good news is that there are a variety of ways to help preserve your iPhone's battery life, just as long as you follow some simple pointers.
Before we explore ways to reserve iPhone battery life, let's cover some specs. Your iPhone has a rechargeable lithium ion battery, which lasts 300 hours in stand-by, 12 hours in talk mode, 30 hours in audio playback, and 10 hours in video playback. Battery life decrees by around 20% after about 500 charges. Also keep in mind iPhone batteries have to be maintained for the entire life of the phone-the battery is clearly embedded within the iPhone itself, so it can not be replaced-so it must be charged at all times. Having this information is critical to understanding how to get the best performance from your iPhone battery. However, knowing what the battery is capable of does not cover what you can do to conserve that battery power.
First off, make sure that there are not a number of applications left running on your phone post-purchase. Turning off applications such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth can go a long way to preserving battery life. Second: chargers, chargers, chargers! There are reliably inexpensive chargers available for every location you can imagine. A popular charger is a 2 in 1 that can be used with a wall socket or plugged into a computer's USB port. Since technology is constantly being upgraded, there is even a new solar powered battery on the market. This charger works by converting sunlight into iPhone charging energy. This charger also has the ability to store energy as a back-up for later use-almost guaranteeing you will not ever run out of juice. One final charging tip: Apple recommends that you standardize the iPhone battery by completely draining it of its charge at least once a month, then recharging it fully.
Getting a charge out of your iPhone and then keeping it as simple as following these guidelines. Making sure you're always fully powered is the best way of preserving the amazing capabilities of your new iPhone.
