Always running out of battery juice? Try these free Android applications. You might be surprised at how long your battery can last when an app automatically optimizes its use.
Power Tune up
This simple to use utility offers a one stop solution for saving battery life. Users have the option of simply turning off tasks that constantly weigh down the battery. They can also control wireless, Bluetooth, GPS and so on right from within the application.
The application has a night mode that puts the device in an extreme power saving mode from 12 pm to 6 am, allowing it to stay awake with minimal possible power consumption.
The application also has a storage cleaner that removes unnecessary files to free up space, and a data monitor that keeps a tab on cellular data consumption.
Remember the power control widget that comes by default on many Android devices and allows users one stop control of various connectivity options such as WiFi, Bluetooth, sync, mobile data and so on? Well Power Toggles application is a much more advanced version of that widget with detailed and much more exhaustive options that can be used to save additional battery.
The app provides control over 2G/3G, Bluetooth, Bluetooth discovery, data sync, screen auto rotate, Wifi hotspot, volume, auto brightness, flashlight, screen always on, USB tethering, screen timeout, battery info etc.
Running applications consume the most power on an Android smartphone. Battery Dr. estimates the amount of power being consumed by individual applications, thereby giving a clear picture to users about what is going on inside their Android smartphone or tablet and the reason for battery drainage.
Once the user narrows down on the application that causes maximum battery consumption it’s easy to uninstall it or seek an alternative for it. If these options are not viable then users can easily kill that particular application when it is not in use.
Along with this the application also provides estimates on remaining battery life, which can give a fair idea to users about how much longer they can use the device for in order to allow them to prioritize tasks. So that you do not miss that important call because you played your favourite video game for a little longer than you should have.
Easy Battery Saver
If nitty gritty is not your cup of tea then Easy Battery Saver is the perfect solution for you. Simple as 1-2-3 this application offers a wide selection of preset options which can be chosen for the type of battery savings you require.
The options include general saving mode, which has basic network control, screen control and sleep schedule to meet your normal battery saving needs.
Intelligent saving mode has eight different controls and runs intelligently to save more battery than general saving does.
Super power saving mode improves your phone’s standby time as much as possible; you won’t have to worry about whether your phone dies at crucial moments due to running out of battery any more.
Advanced customized mode is the best choice for users who want to take control of things.
Finally, normal mode does not do anything for saving battery and lets the device run the way it does.
Reducing display timeout can seriously help users save battery life, but at times when we need to access longer emails or read something on the ebook reader the shorter time-outs become a nuisance. Users get irritated by such short time outs and then reset the setting for a more comfortable time option, but they forget to switch it back to the shorter time out mode and suffer low battery life as a result.
Well, there is an application that can help you overcome this problem as well. Screebl Lite makes sure the device stays on as long as the user holds it in his hand.
The application has a selection of angles that a user would generally hold the device at while reading something and it keeps the display awake as long as the device stays in that angle or range. The free application gives users control over brightness and angle in landscape and portrait modes. There is also a paid version that offers the same support without advertisements but the free mode is not annoying at all and it has advertisements through referral only.
