Optimizing Battery Usage


Auto On and Off
If you find yourself charging your battery a bit too much then you may want to consider using some techniques to save on your battery. Consider doing the following:

* Use the Auto On/Off feature which is designed to program the device to automatically power off and power on at certain times. To setup the Auto On/Off go to Options application, select Auto On/Off and configure the time the device will turn off and on.

* When wireless coverage is not needed, “Turn Wireless Off” to avoid unnecessary attempts by the radio to find coverage.

* For Bluetooth enabled BlackBerry devices, “Turn Bluetooth Off”, if it is not in use.

* BlackBerry devices should be kept in their holsters when not in use because this will turn off the LCD screen.
