now the world is of all smartphone users from lower range to higher range, but everyone of us are facing a problem of battery life in our smart phone.

so there must be some solutions for this, we can even download some battery management software from Google play, but still without software you can even save your battery.

Turn off Auxillary Wireless Connections

I have many wireless connections to my smartphone but none of them were very important during a blackout.  Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are big battery drainers.  Turn of your 3g or 4G connection, it uses tons of power.  GPS is notorious as a power drainer as well.

  • dimming the display,
  • closing the widgets in Android
  • Stop searching for a signal when your not in network.

Managing your screen

As smartphone screens get bigger, the display is responsible for eating more and more of the battery life. On Android you can go into Settings > Battery, or Settings > About phone > Battery use and see exactly what ate your battery. Invariably, your screen will be top of the list.

We’ve already mentioned reducing the brightness level. That will have an impact. You can also decrease the screen timeout. You’ll find it in Settings > Display. Make it as low as you possibly can before you find it terribly frustrating that your screen keeps turning itself off. On Windows Phone you’ll find the option in Settings > Lock + wallpaper > Screen times out after. On BB10 it’s Settings > Display > Screen Lock Timeout.

If you have an AMOLED screen, then you can save battery by using a dark background. The technology turns off pixels when they are black, so if you have predominantly black wallpaper, then you can actually save a lot of juice.

Battery accessories

If you have a device with a removable battery, then you can always buy a spare battery and carry it around with you for emergencies. For some smartphones you can even buy bigger batteries with replacement back covers that accommodate the extra size, but you will inevitably be adding bulk to your device.

Do not follow the method of full charge and full discharge. Avoid letting your cell phone’s battery run all the way down. Unlike nickel-based batteries (such as the NiCd or NiMH rechargeable AA batteries seen in most supermarkets), lithium-based batteries are designed to be charged early and often, and letting them get too low can damage the battery. [1] With Lithium batteries, doing shallow discharges and frequent charging prolongs battery life.
