We’ll keep showing you more tricks and specifics apps as the weeks go on but for now, here are some universal tricks to save power on your phones, laptops, tablets and so on.
Power saver/ Battery saver modes.
This one’s pretty obvious but for those who have never really looked into it, activating your PC or phone’s built-in battery saver will likely handle most of your power saving needs for you. For iOS Android and Windows phone devices this can usually be found in the notification panel or settings under battery or power. Windows 10 PCs come with this feature in the Action Center shown above while Windows 7 PCs will likely require you tick the battery icon on the taskbar and see what options your PC gives you.
2. Turn down your Brightness.
Your Display is always one of the most power hungry aspects of your device, and controlling how bright it is always helps your battery out. This is why you should turn your brightness down, especially at night when the room is likely dark anyway. Turning it all the way down can even increase your battery life to double the amount.
