Settings
91
n Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use. n Turn 4G data service off when not in use
n Turn off GPS location services when not needed. Most applications using this function will periodically query the GPS satellites for your current location; each query drains your battery.
n Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your tablet. Repeating this process of a complete discharge and recharge can over time reduce the storage capacity of any battery. n Turn off Automatic application sync.
n Check the Battery settings to review features or functions that have been consuming your battery power. n Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.
n Animated wallpapers use an increased amount of power and memory. Change your Live Wallpaper to a non-animated Wallpaper gallery or Gallery image. Battery Settings
