Keep your Android phone charged with these battery-saving apps.


No matter how much you love your Android smartphone, there are days where we could all use a little more battery life. With countless apps sometimes running in the background, your mobile battery can become drained pretty quickly.

But don’t put your smartphone down just yet; you can extend the daily lifespan of your phone’s battery and enhance its day-to-day performance with these highly recommended battery-saver apps for Android.


1. JuiceDefender

Manage power according to your own preferences or use preset profiles and extend the battery life of your Android with JuiceDefender. As if it had a mind of its own, this Android battery-saver app puts the juice back into your device by automatically and transparently managing the most power-draining features of your phone, such as mobile data, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G connectivity and screen brightness.

Fully customizable, JuiceDefender has an intuitive layout, and it can run on its own once configured to your liking. Decide when to schedule regular synchronization events, enable or disable specific app connectivity, or automatically toggle your Wi-Fi based on location.

2. 2 Battery

While we all love to save battery life when using our phones, making the most of your data allowance could be an even greater bonus. The 2 Battery app turns off your mobile data connection when you’re not actively using it, reducing both battery drainage and data usage. Even better, it periodically toggles mobile data back on to keep your background data (email, calendar, Twitter, etc.) synchronized.

This Android battery-saver app extends the power of your phone easily and efficiently, without the hassle of confusing menus and options no one understands.

The app handles Wi-Fi, mobile data and even Bluetooth® with ease. A leaf icon in the status panel tells you at a glance how GreenPower is working.


4. Android Booster

5. DU Battery Saver

Within its sleek interface, DU Battery Saver tells you how much time you have left with your phone’s current battery level (and the details of that time, such as how many Internet browsing minutes you have left). It then lets you optimize that time by closing different apps and disabling different features on your phone. You can also pin this app’s widget to your Android’s home screen so you’re always in the know.

Thanks to its features, the free version of DU Battery Saver claims to boost your Android battery life by 50 percent. The paid version claims users can get up to 70 percent more battery life and automates some of the features found in the free version. The version you download depends on your activity level, but the important thing is that DU Battery Saver in some form makes its way onto your Android.


6. Battery Defender

Battery Defender is an app with many of the typical yet vital features of a battery-saver app. One of our favorite features is called Quiet Sleeping. Tell this app when you’re sleeping, and it’ll disable network and Wi-Fi connections in order to maximize your battery the next day. The app will also disable these connections if you’re running super low on battery.
