5 tips to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

By | Cell Phone Charging, Dining, Hospitals, Lifestyle, Mobile Charging Kiosk, Music Festivals, Outdoor Events, Schools and Universities, Tips & Tricks, Trade Shows, Uncategorized

Whether it be a natural disaster, work meetings, or family outings, mobile device batteries surely don’t last forever. Our priority at goCharge is to help keep people connected by charging up — so we came up with a list of tips and tricks to keep your battery charged up as long as possible.

How to keep your mobile device battery charged for longer

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”.

goCharge at school universities and libraries

It’s back-to-school-time! goCharge has been super busy deploying hundreds of cell phone charging stations in and around university campuses, libraries, student unions, and high schools. Our list of facilities grows every year, and we’re more inspired than ever by the commitment of School/Administration to provide the vital need of cell phone charging stations to its students. See below for a list of 4 ways schools and universities can benefit from cell phone charging stations.

      1. Keep your students safer
        No student should ever feel alone or afraid on campus, especially without a charged cell phone battery. Students tend to leave their chargers at home when they go out at night, or even during the day as well due to back to back schedules and lack of outlets in classrooms, which leaves their cell phone batteries depleting with each passing hour. Whether at night or during the day, there should be cell phone charging as far as the eye can see so students can charge up, feel secure, and move on with their day knowing they can communicate with anyone at a moment’s notice.
      2. Increase student life quality
        With Canvass™ by goCharge, School/Administration can learn valuable insight on their student body by implementing this innovative data gathering platform that comes with goCharge charging stations. Designed specifically to capture real-time, hyper-local insights about consumers, schools can incentivize their students using this customized engagement platform that utilizes surveys, sweepstakes/ instant win/ mobile coupons, and more. Want to know where they shop? What is their favorite food? What books they’re reading? Easy! Find out with Canvass™.
      3. Better communication, better school experience
        A vital aspect of student life is communication — not only with each other, but with teachers, professors, faculty, student groups, and more. If there are class updates or schedule changes, or a group study location change, or an update on an exam, students need to use their smartphones to check in and communicate on demand.
      4. Improve library functionality
        As one of the most populated buildings on campus, it’s no surprise libraries can get filled up — particularly during exam week. Many school struggle to keep up with the power outlet demand that is needed by students. Cell phone charging stations are the remedy to the outlet issue. Libraries can offer a variety of different “outlet hubs” (charging stations) around the facility — and since goCharge charging stations come with secure lockers, students may leave their phones in the lockers, charging, while they do research, meet with a group, or catch up on reading. No longer are the days of students hovering over each other to reach an outlet, or crowding a space with lines to charge up next — cell phone charging stations relieve traffic flow and stress in libraries.

The list goes on—there are dozens of reasons why students, universities, and libraries need charging stations, now. These 4 reasons sum up some of the major ways in which a student’s life is vastly improved with cell phone charging stations.

Top Tech for Summer 2017 – Flicks Mobile Cordless Boombox Projector (280WH)

It’s summer. This means hot days, hot nights, and hot tech. This list of cool gadgets will keep you on trend and serve you in ways you never knew you could be served. Read below and let us know which one is your favorite!

Flicks Mobile Cordless Boombox Projector (280WH)

What’s a boombox projector? Exactly how it sounds—and this one is an all-in-one cordless projector with a dynamic range of sound. This handy device allows you to take the romance and nostalgia of a summer drive-in movie with you wherever you go.

Zoom, rotate, and get push notifications for unusual activity, even talk through the device to people within your home—it has two way audio communication. You’ve officially got control over your home’s security.

The reMarkable Tablet by E Ink

We all know physical paper is on the outs. But on its way in is this digital notepad that may as well be paper itself—the screen clones an actual piece of paper with extremely high latency. While the feeling of the stylus against the screen isn’t identical to pen on paper, it feels nice and smooth, and the screen captures what you’re drawing instantly. The tablet comes with a suite of tools to save your work and view them on a desktop or mobile. Remember: it prides itself on not being a tablet. It is a smart notebook made specifically for sketching and drawing, and it’s the best on the market right now.

Its built-in GPS allows you to follow it wherever it goes, so when that dreaded moment comes where everyone at the baggage claim carousel is gone except you, you’ll whip out your smartphone and find your luggage.Its built in scale ensures you’ll never get charged extra weight baggage fees and its digital locks keeps it secure. You’ll also never run out of battery on your smartphone as long as this suitcase is with you, because its USB port charges your phone up to six times.
