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.

Israel Cell Phone Travel Tips

Israel Cell Phone Travel Tips

Plan ahead, order your Israel phone rental in advance

Plan ahead, order your Israel phone rental in advance

If you’re planning to travel to Israel, you have surely taken care of ordering  airline tickets and accommodations. However, many visitors (if not most), forget to arrange for local phone (and data) rentals. When looking for a company which rents out Israel phones and SIM cards, do your homework.

Here are just a few things to look into:

Plan Ahead – But Better Late than Never…

In all likelihood, your local cell provider charges very high rates for roaming. Roaming charges for calls range from $1.99-$3.59 per minute!!!  Data can cost as much as $20 per MB! It is therefore far cheaper to order an Israeli SIM card or phone before your trip. However, if you did not take care of a phone rental for Israel in advance, it’s not too late – we deliver in the USA or Israel.

Advertised Price Does NOT Always Mean Actual Price…

Some companies do a fine job of hiding certain charges in the fine print and you only find out about them at the end of your trip. Here are some examples of what to watch out for:

How many days are you actually paying for?

NES Mobile only charges for the days you’re actually in Israel, even if you receive the phones and SIM cards several days ahead of your trip to Israel. While there’s a 7 day minimum rental,  You only pay for the days you use it in Israel, not for the days the phone is in transit.

 

Other companies, charge you for the days you keep the phone, even if you’re in the USA! NES Mobile also gives you a grace period of one week to return the phone  after your return to the USA. Also remember, NES Mobile does NOT require you to return the SIM card at the end of the trip. Other companies do (and charge a penalty if you don’t do so).

Insurance & Late FeesNES-Mobile-Why-US

NES Mobile does NOT charge any insurance fees. Furthermore, our loss/stolen fees are the lowest in the industry, even when compared to the deductibles some companies charge AFTER charging you an insurance fee…

Deposits

NES Mobile does NOT charge deposits. Other companies do.

VAT (Value Added Tax- similar to sales tax)

We clearly state that there’s an additional VAT. Keep in mind that all Israeli companies are required to charge VAT, even if it’s not advertised, even if they don’t advertise it ahead of time. Read More…

 

What Israeli Mobile Network are they Using?Network-coverage-Israel

Your Israeli cell service is only as good as the network it’s on. There are several network providers in Israel and, just like in the USA, some networks have better coverage than others. NES Mobile uses Cellcom’s network which has the largest network coverage in Israel, and covers the entire country.

Quality of Devices

NES Mobile’s Mifi devices are top quality with a battery life of 4-5 hours and come with unlimited Internet in Israel. You can also use these MiFi devices while they’re charging. Please note: Some companies use Mifi devices that do NOT work while plugged into the wall (charging), so you must charge them first and only then can they be used. You cannot use them and charge them at the same time.

NES Mobile‘s cell phone rentals are usually basic, good quality models of Nokia and Samsung (such as the Nokia 100). They are all in good condition and are usually no older than 6-12 months.
