Usually, mobile phone batteries drain out exactly when we want them the most. However, there are a few things that can be done in order to make you get that last mile from your battery before it drains out completely.

I am putting below some settings which can certainly help you get around 50% more from your battery.
- Turn off your Infrared and BlueTooth when not in use. Even when they are not in use, they do keep drawing power looking for signals.
- Switch off the vibration alerts. Vibration causes a lot of power usage thereby making battery drain fast.
- Re-adjust your screen brightness to around 50%. Screen power is another silent killer.
- Usually, presetted Backlight durations are of pretty high order, this can be readjusted to get more from your battery. Try reducing the Backlight duration.
- Often we don’t understand that playing games requires Light, Sounds and Shakes. This in turn leads to tripling of battery drainage.
- Lower Ringing and other message sounds. This too helps saving a lot of battery.
- Finally, do charge your battery before it gets drained fully. This enhances battery life.

Betathetamu says “Another important factor is call volume. I have noticed that most people have the call volume set to maximum. I don’t have to actually check the volume bars because I can hear the other party as if the loudspeaker is on and is set to min. level. This not only shortens talk-time, but also drains battery faster than anything else. 50% call volume is usually more than sufficient to hear the other person clearly. If you work in a noisy environment, try using handsfree instead of maxing out call vol”.
