Extending Your Battery Life
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS
functionality all act to drain your battery. The following is a list of
helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
Reduce your backlight on time.
Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
Deactivate the GPS when not needed. Most applications using this
function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your current location;
each query drains your battery.
Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your
device. Repeating this process of a complete discharge and recharge can
over time reduce the storage capacity of any battery.
Turn off Automatic application sync.
Use the Power Saving feature to deactivate some hardware and interface
Check the Battery use screen to review what features or functions have
been consuming your battery resources.
Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.
Use the Task Manager feature to end/shutdown background applications
that are still running. These minimized applications can, over time, cause
your device to "slow down".
Turn off any streaming services after use (see Running Services).
