Tips for keeping your phone charged when travelling


phone travel

We use our phones more than ever and they tend to go with us pretty much everywhere these days, especially when we travel as it usually doubles up as a camera as well. However when we travel there will be occasions when you're not going to be near a charger especially if your camping.  If you are sick and tired of your phone dying whenever you're on the road or exploring somewhere new have nothing to worry about. Those days are long gone because there are plenty of things that you can do to try and preserve your battery.

Use the Original Charger

A lot of people buy spare chargers when going abroad. This is great, but there is a high chance that your phone battery is suffering as a result. If you do not use the original charger then your device won’t charge as quickly, and you may even find that it depletes faster. This can cause you major issues when you are abroad, so make sure that you take your original charger with you.

Turn On Airplane Mode

Airplane mode can save you a huge amount of battery. You don’t just need to use it when you are on the plane either. You can use it when your phone is getting low, or even when you need to conserve your battery for a long period of time. Airplane mode essentially stops your phone from trying to find a signal, and when you turn off your GPS and Bluetooth as well, you will soon find your phone can go for hours longer than usual.

Use Dark Wallpaper

The less pixels your phone needs to light up, the more power you will ultimately save. This rule also applies to apps, as well. If your app has a dark theme, it will also help to conserve your battery life. If you want to help yourself even more here, then it helps to lower the brightness of your screen as well.

Uninstall as Many Apps as you Can

Uninstalling your favourite apps can be a difficult task, but you can easily go without them in most cases. If you are concerned about being disconnected from everyone then you have nothing to worry about. It is more than possible for you to invest in an iCloud mail set up for your Mac. That way, you can handle everything without any concern of your phone battery.

Download Content before you Go

It’s so important that you download as much content as you can before you go. This will save you from going online and trying to find everything there, and it will also make it way easier for you to stay entertained on the go. This will save battery, as you won’t be loading up data all the time. If you do need to watch things on the go then it may be a good idea for you to invest in something like a portable DVD player so that you can conserve your phone battery.

Buy pocket chargers

You can now pick up small pocket charges for a very reasonable amount although I would recommend staying away from pound stores and investing in a decent on which can charge up your phone fully, more than once. These can be a real lifeline when your travelling and I now pack 2-3 every time we go camping or to a festival as this will usually cover me for a few days when I combine it with the tips above. Here is a guide to some of the best portable chargers out there.

Having a mobile that is always low on battery can be frustrating when you are abroad. You may even find it difficult to take the photos you want as well, but with these top tips, you can be sure to not only save your battery but also eliminate the stress that comes with it running low.
