She’s a wizard when it comes to wireless– Cellular Chloe is here to share the latest and greatest wireless wonders!

Summertime means day trips and vacation and lots of traveling that may limit your ability to charge your phone and other gadgets, so Cellular Chloe has some tips to save your batteries this summer.

1. Turn off the antennas

You can switch off the GPS, Bluetooth and Wifi to save your energy, but there’s more you can do, too.  A lot of applications ask to use your current location, and you should decline that to save some juice.  And if you’re listening to music, instead of using Bluetooth, use the 3.5mm jack to listen instead.  With Wifi, forget old connections and you’ll save energy that way, too.

2. Displays

Bigger screens take up more battery power, so you want to use a dark wallpaper, since dark images use less energy to display.  You can also take your phone off auto brightness, which is a factory default setting.  It’s still pretty bright if you set it halfway down.  You can even turn off the auto rotate function, because that eats up energy, too!

3. Display Time

Turn your display time down to 15 seconds– this will put your phone to sleep right after you sue it and you won’t waste the battery keeping it active for no reason.

4.  Vibrations and Sound

You can turn off vibrations and sounds when you’re tapping on letter, because you don’t really need these for text.

5. Notifications

Chloe is a hockey fan, so she has Bleacher Report and the Bruins app on her phone.  She gets a notification alert anytime something new comes up.  but if she’s on vacation, these alerts aren’t necessary, so shut those off too.

6. Battery Banks

Even using your battery as sparingly as possible, it’s always a good idea to keep a portable battery bank with you, just so you can feel confident you’ll always be charged and reachable.
