Maintaining a fully charged cell phone is always important for comfort and safety. And moreover, there’s one more reason to keep your phone powered: since July, a new rule which requires all passengers to turn on their carry-on devices (cellphones, tablets, and laptops) before boarding a plane has been implemented by France, United Kingdom and the USA. Devices that don’t power on will not be allowed to leave with the original owner.
So, trust that, keep your phone charged at airports will be a necessary. Here are some helpful tips.
1. Turn Airplane Mode on:
Turning Airplane mode on means that you turn of the Cellular data, voice data, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Location Services and other power-hungry settings, and will instantly give your phone an additional 10 hours of power.
2. Adjusting Screen Brightness:
It’s no secret that turning down the brightness on your screen will save battery life. Turning the brightness to its lowest setting can double battery life compared to having it at full.
3. Carry a mobile power bank:
Luckily, there are more and more mobile power banks appearing in the market. It will be able to charge your phone, tablet, camera, Kindle, or even your bluetooth earphones. Avoid the stress of having to charge all of your devices by doing it the night before your flight.
4. DO NOT Close Apps in Multitask:
We have heard from several users that double-clicking the home button and swiping up on all of the existing apps will increase battery life. However, the complete opposite happens. Constantly closing apps allows it to be removed from the phones RAM. When you decide that you want to open the app again, the phone has to work much harder to load the app. The constant loading, unloading, then loading puts stress on the phone which results in a higher battery usage.
5. Turn off Push Emailing:
Push Emailing is a useful function when you are expecting an email. However, if you are at less than 10% and at the airport, I would suggest to leave it off.
6. Turn Off Battery Percentage:
Many cell phone users are extremely attentive when it comes to keeping track of their remaining battery life. The truth is that this does more harm than good. Constantly turning your phone off and on to check the battery life drains your battery.
