How to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

Turn off Bluetooth and Wifi

Even when Bluetooth and Wifi are not linked to any sources, they will constantly search for sources to which they can join.

Don’t let it get too hot or cold

Keeping your phone room temperature is vital for battery life — avoid leaving it in the car, outside, and don’t leave it in the fridge by accident (we’ve all been guilty of that mistake). Stay away from extreme temperatures, this can cause permanent damage.

Dim the screen brightness // use auto brightness

The brightness on your screen is directly related to battery drainage. Think about it: if you have a dimmer in your lights at home, the brighter your lights are, the higher your electricity bill is. That’s because the light consumes energy. Bringing this concept back to a cell phone battery: Bright screen –> More energy –> More battery usage.

Turn off location services, GPS

Even when the app isn’t in use, or isn’t running at all, it is still *quietly* draining your battery. Just because you’re not active on Google Maps or Waze doesn’t mean they’re not tracking you, preparing for that second you need their services. Change the settings of your phone to turn off location services.

Turn off push email

It’s less convenient, but will save a huge amount of battery life. Manually checking your mail is not only good for your battery, it’s good for your mental health. You choose when to check in, rather than that red 1 notification checking in on you in the middle of dinner. Regardless of how you choose to check your mail, when you’re in a situation where you really need to save battery, turn off everything “push”.

Earlier this week, an elated Carnegie Hill Endoscopy customer wrote to goCharge to tell us how grateful she was for the cell phone charging he used while waiting for a loved one getting a procedure. “The feeling of security and comfort the charging station gave me kept me calm while waiting in the lobby all day. The power to stay connected is so important in medical facilities and hospitals where communicating with family and friends is vital,” he said.

There is nothing more important than staying charged while waiting for a loved one at a medical facility. goCharge is proud to be the main source of power for countless hospitals, medical centers, and clinics across the country.

The people who have a cell phone charging cord with them will look everywhere for a spare outlet or USB port to charge up their phones. However, in a hospital, this is very dangerous. People don’t think about the safety of charging, which can risk lives. If you plug your cell phone charger into a hospital machine’s USB, this machine can be collecting important information on a patient’s health status, or even helping them stay alive. It’s important to provide cell phone charging solutions to people when they’re in an emergency and need to use their cell phone to communicate.

Following are 6 benefits of cell phone charging stations in hospitals:
