Hollywood loves shallow things. Weho also loves its cell phones. Everyone
is relying on them, addicted to them, all the time. City hall even
bought signs telling pedestrians to look up from their devices while crossing
the street! Seriously, multiple (often drunk) people have been hit
at crosswalks in West Hollywood, often because they were glued to their
With that kind of popularity keeping your gadget charged
all day is now more important than ever. Here are some tips:
Vibration: turn it off if possible. It's a huge power eater.
Constantly monitoring your global position takes power and prevents the
phone from "sleeping" to save juice. Turn it on to use Lyft or Uber, then
turn it off again.
3. Opening and closing apps: let apps you use
often keep running. Don't close and re-open them all day long. I'm looking
at you, Grindr.
4. Constantly re-charging your phone is better for
it than letting the battery go to 0% before re-charging. Topping off and
constantly recharging is good.
5. The Facebook app is huge drain
on batteries even when you turn it OFF. Uninstall it.
6. Instagram also gobbles up battery power and storage pre-loading images
and videos. Uninstall it.
7. Screen brightness: the lower you go
the more power you save.
8. Beat the heat: don't leave your phone
in the hot sun or a locked car. High temperatures ruin the battery over
time. Air vents should be dust free.
9. Basic Black Wallpaper: modern
phones with OLED screens use power slower showing black. Up to 18% less.
And it's easier on your eyes.
10. Ad-Blockers: an ad you block is
one less ad for your processor to display. Fortunately this website does
not show ads.
But I HATE AD BLOCKERS for my ad based websites. Don't
kill our ad revenue with blockers! I'm conflicted :(
