General Tips

Maximising BYOD battery life at school


To help get the maximum battery runtime from your device, manufacturers have provided some helpful tips:

  • Use battery saver whenever possible
  • Reducing your screen brightness greatly increases battery life
  • Close any applications or programs that are not in use

Most devices include a 'battery saver' setting to enable far greater battery run times, at a cost  of some device performance. 
Depending on the task you are performing, the extra performance may not even be needed or noticeable with battery saver on.
