You may need it. 6 ways to save your smartphone's charge during power outages

Nowadays, a smartphone is an integral part of our lives. From connecting with friends and family to work and entertainment— smartphone is always at hand.

However, due to the shelling of the occupiers of critical infrastructure of Ukraine and as a as a as a result of the implementation of the blackout schedule, you may face the problem when even the most modern smartphones do not have enough charge .

Therefore, in such conditions, it is extremely important to keep your smartphone battery charged for the whole day.

We have prepared some tips that will help you always stay in touch.

Optimizing screen settings

The screen is one of the biggest energy consumers in a smartphone. To reduce its impact on the battery charge, first set the screen brightness to a comfortable but low level.

Also use automatic brightness adjustment – this will help the screen automatically adjust to the ambient light.

In addition, it will be unnecessary to set a shorter time for the screen to automatically turn off when there is no activity.

Turn off unnecessary functions

Many functions and applications that run in the background can drain your battery quickly

To start, turn off GPS, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi when not needed. These features use a lot of power.

Turn off alerts from unnecessary apps This will reduce the number of pop-up messages and save battery.

Use power saving mode

Most smartphones have a built-in power saving mode that automatically limits background process activity and reduces power consumption.

Turn it on in your smartphone settings, especially when the battery is low battery is starting to decrease.

To activate this mode, you need to go to battery settings and select the appropriate option.

Software update

Regular software updates may include power management improvements.

Update your operating system and apps to improve battery efficiency.

Control your app usage

Some apps can be particularly power-hungry: Track which apps consume the most power and limit their use.

Usually, media applications such as Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, and messengers such as Telegram, Whatsapp, Viber account for the largest amount of battery usage.

Use dark mode

Dark mode reduces power consumption on smartphones with OLED screens:

Enable dark mode, if your smartphone supports this function, activate it to reduce the load on battery.


To do this, open the settings program, click on display and brightness, select dark.

It is important to know that OLED screens consume less electricity during display dark colors because each pixel lights up individually like a small LED light bulb.

According to Purdue University research switching from light mode to dark mode at 100% brightness can save in&nbsp ;an average of 39% to 47% battery life.

However, the battery savings in dark mode may not be that significant during daily use.
