The longer the battery life, more you can use their features. There are small and compatible handsets, whose battery last longer than a day. The users don’t have to worry about charging them frequently. What is the use of a cellular handset that has good features, but shorter battery life?

On the other hand, there are some batteries that works perfectly fine for the 1st couple of months, then starts giving you problem. It is recommended to purchase a branded battery, as they will last for a longer time. Moreover the manufacture also offers a warranty, so you can get them replaced.

After some days, your battery will have a deformed shape, which indicates that it needs to be changed.

Unless required, never keep your cellular unit on a vibrating mode. You can instead make use of backlight, which consumes less energy. It is recommended to keep them in silent mode, when you don’t want to receive any calls. Many users prefer texting, rather than talking on their handset. Such is the craze that they can text, even when they are fast asleep.

This will ruin the battery strength, which will definitely be of no help to you. With these simple steps, you can properly take care of your handset and the battery.
