Power Saving Tips
Active applications, light levels, Bluetooth usage, and GPS functionality all act to drain your
battery. The following is a list of helpful tips that can help conserve your battery power:
●
Reduce your backlight time.
●
Turn Bluetooth off when not in use.
●
Turn Wi-Fi off when not in use.
●
Turn 4G data service off when not in use.

Do not wait until your battery is completely depleted before charging your device.
Repeating this process of a complete discharge and recharge can over time reduce the
storage capacity of any battery.
●
Turn off Automatic application sync.
●
Check the Battery settings to review features or functions that have been consuming
your battery power.

Check the Running Services and close any unnecessary applications.
