Enhancing Device Battery Life While Traveling


Let’s face it. There’s more than enough to worry about when traveling during the holiday season. From delayed flights to major traffic jams, we can encounter plenty of obstacles before arriving at our destination. So, why risk the chance of your favorite, most important tech gadgets dying along the way? From smartphones to tablets, there are a number of ways to enhance the battery life of your devices while traveling.

Battery Cases

Aside from boosting battery life, battery cases are ideal for protecting your phone from hazardous drops, slips or bumps. The majority of these handy cases feature connector plugs, designed to match up with the phone’s charging port. This is how extra power is delivered straight to your device. Although highly beneficial, there is one downfall to battery cases: any form of dock-cradle accessories cannot be utilized without taking your device out of this case. Nevertheless, these cases can really come in handy when you’re on the go, and they are also available for an iPad and various other tablet devices.

External Battery Packs

If you can’t seem to find a battery case specifically designed for your phone or tablet, another option for improving battery life is using an external battery pack. All you need to do before hitting the road is to make sure that you fully charge the pack at home. This can be accomplished simply by plugging the battery pack in to a standard wall charger. This way, you will have a reliable, efficient source of extra power to carry with you in case of emergencies.

Modified Device Settings

Tweaking the settings on your gadget, whether it’s a phone or a tablet, can be highly beneficial to preserving battery life. Although the specific steps may vary depending on your device, here are a few basic tips to keep in mind when modifying general settings.

Adjusting Screen Brightness

Although the majority of phones come with an auto-brightness feature, which is designed to consume less power than keeping screen brightness settings at full capacity, it would be even better to place the brightness levels at the lowest possible setting. Obviously, it’s up to you to determine the lowest level you can maintain and tolerate based on your own visibility preferences.

Disabling Various Settings

Turning off unused settings on your gadget can vastly improve battery life. This includes functions such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, location services, and even vibrate mode. Nevertheless, turning on one particular setting can also prove beneficial in boosting power. Enabling Airplane Mode will quickly disable all wireless features included in your device, from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to cellular data.

Follow these tips to ensure long-lasting, enhanced performance for your phones and tablets as you make your way around during the holidays. Safe travels everyone!

2019 BMW i8 Review

The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities.Even among six-figure cars with two doors, the 2019 BMW i8 steals stares. That could be because of the dramatic wing doors and futuristic shape, its laser headlights at night, or the 2019 i8’s silent propulsion for up to 18 miles.
Or it may steal attention because, even after more than four years on sale, it’s a very rare sight.

Apple iPhone XR Review

Should I Buy The Apple iPhone XR?
The iPhone XR brings Face ID to the masses. We’re sure people will continue to rebel against the lack of Home button, but eventually we expect them to come round and embrace the larger screen, Portrait mode (front and back), animoji and memoji.We have no doubt that this will be a popular iPhone and it deserves to be. The only question is why would anyone buy an iPhone XS when the iPhone XR is just as powerful and has a bigger screen.

Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.
