    Allot of people complain about the General Life of Battery’s on Smartphones. luckily for us we have tips and tricks on prolonging your battery life and how to avoid damaging your battery.

    Top 5 reason why your WP battery is not lasting long.

    1. You have allot of live tiles, Location updates..ect , Usage basically shoots up.
    2. you are damaging your battery by not charging it the proper way:
    3. battery saver is not activated.
    4. You are in a LOW or NO reception area.
    5. You leave your WIFI and blue-tooth ON even do you don’t use it.

    NOTE: some people seem to claim that doing a HARD RESET on your phone will also fix some Battery problems, but that's probably because they simply deactivate ALL features/apps on the phone buy whipping it clean , so its not a real fix, its more like a lazy way out instead of figuring out WITCH app/feature is draining the battery.

    Charging your battery:
    ( some of these steps do not apply to WP ex: turning phone off while charging)
    Battery Information Table of Contents, Basic to Advanced

    - Charge at a moderate temperature. Do not charge below freezing.
    - Lithium-ion does not need to be fully charged; a partial charge is better.
    - Chargers use different methods for “ready” indication. The light signal may not always indicate a full charge.
    - Discontinue using charger and/or battery if the battery gets excessively warm.
    - Before prolonged storage, apply some charge to bring the pack to about half charge.
    - Over-discharged batteries can be “boosted” to life again. Discard pack if the voltage does not rise to a normal level within a minute while on boost.
    - should also refrain from using third party chargers that don’t boost out the same Voltage ( in the long run it could damage your battery)
