    Red face » How To Save Power On Your Android Phone

    Thought we should make a list on how to save your androids battery life.

    - Turn off wifi when not in use
    - Put phone into airoplane mode/turn off when not in service
    - Use JuiceDefender
    - Keep your screen brightness as low as possible
    - Change settings so it uses only 2G when you can
    - Use a black background (AMOLED Displays)
    - Set screen timeout time to shortest
    - Turn off bluetooth when not required
    - Turn off GPS
    - Turn off vibration
    - Getting a task killer and killing apps not in use
    - Disable apps that sync constantly
    - Disable auto sync & background data
    - Set emails to sync less frequently
    - Set apps like facebook to sync less regularly
    - Disable/Remove apps you dont use
    - Delete homescreen widgets you dont use
    - Don't use a live wallpaper
    - Keep the battery from getting hot
    - Download battery doctor
    - Consider purchasing a larger battery (legitimate ones come with a larger case)

    Does anyone have any other ways to save battery? if so i'll add them in

    One can save power by following simple steps like configuring their display settings, downloading power widgets, configuring notifications of email and other social networks, killing unnecessary programs, turn off GPS and similar type of services to it. This footmarks helps in saving 40% of battery life.

    Along with JuiceDefender, also try Easy Battery Saver. When put into Intelligent mode, it is the most effective.

    I install only one app at a time.

    The app has to have minimum permissions.
    The app has to have great feedback.

    Installing one at a time I found some apps cause battery drain, for example the Microsoft Virtual Animal App,
    I installed the app and my battery life went from 2 days to 7 hours.

    I believe rogue apps stop devices from going into deep hibernation and this effect battery life severely.

    I do no believe in running a app JuiceDefender (over head) to reduce battery life.

    Watch the apps uninstall power hungry apps.
    Watch the display make sure it is not running all the time full brightness.

    Read a tech paper a suspended app in Android take no battery life.
    A footprint is saved to restore the app quickly, and even that is killed when Android OS requires the memory.

    JuiceDefender, task killers sure will say ..... buy me !!! They want to stay in business but they are not needed.

    I get two days on my device.

    I guess it all depends on what works for you. Your phone obviously has very good battery life. My phone has bad battery life, so I use battery saving apps, and they work miracles for my phone. Every phone is different. (:

    I keep all apps from checking for updates automatically plus I will only update apps in the morning when I have the phone plugged in, fully charged and using the wifi. I use droidwall & LBE privacy guard to keep app permissions to a minimum and only allow them to use the permissions they need, I use Titanium to freeze stock apps that I don't use or need .. has kept my battery life very high.

    I will recommend you to switch off your unusual apps, gps, configure your display settings, make usage of social networking apps thriftily. This will help you out to save your battery life.

    I have an LG Optimus T. It lasts 9 days with a single charge while still functioning as a phone. Day-in and day-out.

    No 3G / 2G trick. No Juice Defender, no task killers (tried them, hated them). No lowering screen brightness or disabling vibration.

    All I did was turn off packet-data (I have no data plan). However, at some point, I found that I also need to turn off the Wi-Fi. There is some sneaky app, potentially stock app, on my phone that is waking up and disrupting its meditation.

    All I wanted is an App that will turn off WiFi (actually toggling the WiFi switch in Settings) while the screen is turned off. I couldn't find one and I am to busy to learn to write one myself. Leaving the Gingerbread OS to do it does not work.

    Re: » How To Save Power On Your Android Phone

    Another great app is Autorun Manager. You pick which apps to turn off / keep from starting up. The Pro license grants you unlimited processes you can kill, believe the free version kills 4.

    LED indicator on my HTC One V is not accurate/stable when recharging it. I always turn the phone off to recharge. The first several days, it showed steady orange but never changed to green when the battery was fully charged. Yesterday, it blinked orange and never turned green when it was fully charged.
    In both cases, the LED indicator turns green when I turn on the phone while the power cable is still connected. And in both cases, the battery was in fact fully charged. It's just the indicator is not accurate/stable.

    The indicator SHOULD turn green when the battery is fully charged, regardless of whether the phone is on or off, right?
