Boost Cell Phone Battery Life

We’ve all been there. It’s only half-way through the day when you look down at your smartphone and realize that you have used most of your cell phone battery life. It doesn’t have to be that way though. This article will give you some tips on how to increase the life of your cell phone battery, particularly for those traveling the world using NES Mobile Israel SIM, or other International SIM cards.

13 Ways to Increase Your Cell Phone Battery Life

1. Connect to Wi-Fi:

Israel-pocket-wif-iMifi-Unlimited-Internet-NES-Mobile-comp4G and Bluetooth are data hogs. One way to not only increase battery life, but also use less of your data, is to turn them off and connect to a wireless network when there is one available. Many customers prefer to order both an Israel mobile hotspot in addition to their Israel SIM, in order to increase their Israel cell phone battery life.

2. Dim the screen:

The brighter your screen is, the more battery your phone is going to use. Set the brightness of your phone’s screen to a level where you can comfortably see it. Most phones have a feature that will automatically set your phone to the optimal brightness level.

3. Don’t put your cell phone on vibrate:

The vibrate mode on your phone actually uses more battery than your ringtone. If you aren’t in a situation where you can’t have your ringtone on, let the phone ring.

4 . Shorten the screen timeout:

The less time your phone is active when you are not interacting with it, the better. Set your screen timeout to as little time as possible and you will see an increase in your cell phone battery life.

5. Turn your phone off when not in use:

Bell caves of Beit Guvrin

This might sound like a no-brainier but when your phone is off, it won’t consume any cell phone battery life. You don’t need to be checking Twitter every five minutes anyw
ay. This is particularly true when you go to underground tunnels in Israel like the Kotel tunnels, Beit Guvrin Caves or City of David. When your phone cannot reach a signal, your phone works even harder to reach a signal and drains more of your battery in the process.

6. Make sure you close out of your apps when you are done with them:

Being able to use multiple apps at the same time is a handy feature of smartphones, but it is easy to keep the app running, even when not in use. This is sure to drain your cell phone battery. Make sure to close out of all your apps when you are done with them.

7. Minimize notifications:

Smartphones have the ability to update you on emails, sports scores, social medial alerts, news, and much more. But the more your phone updates you, the harder it works, and the harder it works, the more cell phone battery it will use. Set your phone up to give you only the notifications you really need.

8. Push your email:

Instead of having your phone constantly checking for email, set your phone to only do so every so often.

9. Keep your phone cool:

Your battery works best in cooler temperatures. Whether you’re hiking in Israel or on hanging out on the beach, keep your phone out of direct sunlight or anywhere that is hot.

10. Limit your bandwidth use:

Streaming videos and music use a lot bandwidth, and the more bandwidth you use, the more toll it is going to play on your battery life. One tip to use less bandwidth, is to store your music and video on your phone instead of constantly streaming it. Another way to decrease bandwidth uses is to set your apps to only automatically update when connected to a wireless network.

11. Don’t overcharge*:

Charging your phone too often is hard on the cell phone battery. The best way to charge your phone is to wait till the battery life is 10 percent or less, and then charge it until completely charged. This will keep you from having to charge your battery too often. *NOTE – Different cell phone models have different recommendations, so you should consult your manufacturer’s guidelines.

12. Install an ad blocker:

If you spend a lot of time on the web, advertisements use resources, and resources use battery. So the fewer ads your phone is able to load, the better.

13. Turn off location and GPS:

Constantly tracking your location keeps your phone active at all times. The less your phone is active, the less battery it will use.

These SIM cards provide coverage in over 200 countries and are easy on your budget with many advantages. But that’s not the only requirement when it comes to covering all your traveling needs. To ensure a smooth international trip, there are other cell phone travel accessories which are essential and will complement your purchase of a special international SIM card.

External Batteries and Power Banks

Carrying external batteries will keep you connected when you’re hiking or traveling, and prevent you from spending excess time charging your phone, tablet, a laptop or any other gadget that may need recharging. The solution: Extra batteries in your travel bag!

All you need to do is simply charge the external batteries in advance, so when you need them they can easily charge your device. You’re traveling! You’d rather be spending that time exploring the sites instead of sitting around waiting for your cell phone to charge or getting caught without a phone in a foreign country. Carrying external batteries and power banks ensure that you have a double backup. Here are some recommended External Batteries and Power Banks options you can buy on Amazon:

Electrical Plug Power Adapters & Universal Adapters

Isn’t it frustrating when you reach your hotel and the power socket doesn’t support your charger? What do you do then? You can’t possibly rely on power banks throughout your stay – they also need to be recharged at some point. Having a travel wall plug and adapter(s) ensures you that your unlocked smartphone, laptop or any other electrical device will work. The ultimate peace of mind! The wall plug is compatible with your cell phone’s charger and the adapter makes sure your laptop works as well. Most smartphones can work globally and simply need an adapter, but some electrical devices may need a different current. Here are some recommended international plugs and adapter options you can buy on Amazon:

Waterproof Dry Bag Cases for Cell Phones

While most travelers do realize that they may need a travel plug adapter and an external battery, many do not consider another essential and relatively cheap travel tip. This is actually a no-brainer, especially if you plan on going on a water hike or kayaking in Israel or elsewhere. You’re in a foreign land, seeking adventure and the last thing you want to do is to sabotage your cell phone by dropping it in the lake while you’re enjoying the view or get it all caught up in the rain. Dry bags come in all shapes and sizes, and can keep both your smartphone and other valuables dry, even if you get wet.
