Iphone Battery App     -     Does it Help Conserve Battery Life?

Conserving your iPhone's battery is one of the issues that you have to deal with especially if you are using it throughout your day. I'm going to explain here how a free iphone battery app can help you conserve your battery life and to what extent it can do so. The app I'm using is called "Battery Doctor" made by Beijing Kingsoft so I'm gonna use it as an example of what it can do to conserve your battery life.

Battery Status

The app gives you an estimate time of usage with the current battery level you have. The good thing about it is that it doesn't just give you a general usage time but different usage times for different activities you do on your iPhone.

Activities like:

  • Internet on Wifi
  • Internet on 3G
  • Talk time (2G)
  • Talk time (3G)
  • Video Playback
  • Youtube
  • Audio Playback
  • Audio via Bluetooth
  • 2D game
  • 3D game
  • Video Recording
  • Photo Taking
  • GPS Navigation
  • Reading
  • Standby
  • Voice Memos
  • FaceTime
  • LED Torch
  • Siri (iPhone 4S)

The other cool thing as well is you can adjust the current level of battery being shown on the status so you'll know the different usage times for those activities at certain battery levels. So let's say you have 80% on your battery level right now and you want to know the usage time for each activity when the battery goes down to 50%. You simply drag the battery level indicator to 50% and it automatically adjusts the different usage times for you.

Charging levels and stages

The Battery Doctor gives you 3 different stages for charging. These are Fast Charging, Continuation, and Trickle Charging. So it goes to fast charging first and completes it before moving on to the next stage. It also give you an estimated time remaining for charging. Completing the three battery stages actually lengthens your battery lifespan. Usually when the iphone's battery indicator is 100%, it has only completed the fast charging stage and not the other two.

Charging Records

This free iPhone battery app also shows you a calendar which gives records of your charging history. It will either indicate a "full cycle", "normal", or "overcharge" on each day with circled marks in different colors representing each one.

Tips

It also has free tips for you to conserve your battery life by turning off certain setting that you are not using to prevent it from consuming your battery.

This free iPhone battery app can certainly help you keep track of your battery usage and charging habits but it doesn't help you extend your battery life. Although it provides tips on conserving its battery, this will also restrict you from using some features of your iphone for the sake of saving energy. If you're using your iPhone often and need something to get your battery life extended then check out iPhone accessories that actually do that.
