Adjust the brightness of your screen

A bright screen can quickly drain your battery. For the most part, you probably don’t need it to be very bright. So try dimming it to conserve a ton of battery power.

Disable push notifications

Push capabilities for email and other applications cause your phone to regularly send out signals in an attempt to retrieve information and updates. Disabling this will take a big weight off of your battery.

Know when to charge your battery

Find out what type of battery your phone uses. Lithium ion batteries can be charged anytime without affecting the long-term battery life. Nickel-based batteries, however, lose their power over time if you charge them too frequently, so make sure they’re completely drained first.

These are a few basic tips that can greatly improve battery life and keep you from having to live without your phone. For more tips and tricks, check out this Business Insider article.
