Extending your Blackberry smartphone’s battery life
BlackBerry smartphones might not be the most energy efficient smartphones but you can tweak them in such a way for even when you use them heavily for phone calls, email or web browsing you can use them a very long time before you have to charge them again.
Here is a list of things you can do to improve battery life on your BlackBerry smartphone.
1. Turn off your radio when there is no signal available
As your phone is searching for signal, there is large amount of battery being wasted, especially when you’re underground, in a subway or a basement, your phone is continually searching for signal. So the best thing to do, is turning off your radio. This can easily be done by going to Applications, Manage Connections, and then uncheck the Mobile Network box.
2. Switch off Bluetooth
Alot of people have bluetooth headsets, and most of them are drivers. So when those drivers are not talking, all they simply have to do is disconnect bluetooth from the Manage Connections menu. But when you get a call, all you have to do is just turn it back on.
3. Turn off Wi-Fi
Like the first one, you don’t always want to search for WiFi all the time, so all you have to do is uncheck the box, but only if you know if theres WiFi around you.
4. Reduce backlight
The default screen backlight is set to 100, making the timeout to 30 seconds. So all you have to do is change it to 50. But if you think you have patience, change the backlight timeout to 20 or 10, it may be annoying though. You can also change the auto dimmer on to save a little bit.
5. Change your ringer settings
It is very obvious that a vibrating phone wastes alot of battery, which is no different for the BlackBerry. The volume of your ringer plays a big role in your battery. So just choose a ringer, but then set the volume low, but able to hear.
6. Close unneeded aapplications
If you just hit “END” to exit out of programs, or any website that automatically reloads, means the app is still running, just not on the screen. It pulls data from your connection making it more slow and battery draining.
While your BlackBerry is in the holster, the backlight is automatically turned off, which can save a lot of battery.
8. Get an additional battery
Although this is the only tip that involves money, it is the easiest way. All you have to do is buy an extended battery.
Goodluck in flexing your BlackBerry with more battery life.
