Thread: How can I increase my Battery Life?

    Default How can I increase my Battery Life?
    Hey guys I want to increase my battery life so what good tips do you have?
    I already do the following
    -Turn off WiFi and BT and SSH
    -Brightness all the way down

    Also putting the iphone in sleep alot does that decrease battery life.

    One more thing which apps waste the most battery even when not in use?

    Thanks

    You could also turn on airplane mode or turn the phone off for maximum battery life.



    (you have pretty much done all you can besides staying up to date with current firmware which is supposed to optimized for battery life)

    Try and charge it by hooking it to your computer for a good 6 hours, my battery was getting **** but once i charged it fully and had 3 days of music, movies, internet and calls. It lasted for 3 days.

    Get the extended preferences from installer and put "Screen dims after:" to 30 seconds; also out auto lock on.
    Click that "Thanks" button if I helped you!

    What is BT and how do I turn it off (with what source)?

    I was wondering about the same things, good thread.

    get services.app it controls edge, ssh, wifi, and BT (bluetooth) there might be other apps that do the same but services.app has worked perfectly for me.
