November 15, 2012

Hopefully you found Monday’s tip on using power management settings to lengthen your battery life helpful. Today’s tip goes a little deeper and takes a look at some simple changes you can take to improve battery life even more.

Lower your screen brightness: Most of the energy use on your devices comes from the display. Try turning down the brightness level, you may be surprised at how big of a difference it makes.

Turn off WiFi and Bluetooth: When you’re not using them, disable WiFi and bluetooth radios. These features drain the battery, even when not in use.
