Ten tips and tricks to extend your BlackBerry Z10 battery life

A new device means a new battery -- and new questions on just how long it lasts.

We've been able to make it through a full work day with a single battery on the BlackBerry Z10, and we can imagine the larger battery of the BlackBerry Q10 will be even better.

Everyone's device use varies, but for most of us, we really just need to make it through the day.

Some are heavy users and others aren't, so what might be great battery life for you won't be so great for others.

If you are a heavy user and want to maximize your battery life on your BlackBerry 10 device - look no further.

We've assembled ten tips you can use to make sure you are getting the most out of your battery.

This one is a no brainer. Turn off whatever you're not using to save on battery. If you're out somewhere with no WiFi - turn it off. Same goes for Bluetooth and NFC. These guys will eat a bit of your battery if left on, so when you aren't using them simply turn them off. On the same note, when you do have WiFi access be sure to take advantage of it - being on a WiFi network will greatly help your battery life.

Go to Settings > Network Connections to turn these features on or off

There is no auto-dim for the backlight on the BlackBerry Z10, but turning it down can help save precious battery life. The brighter the screen, the more battery you'll lose. So keep it down with 10-20% and you will be treating your battery better and it will thank you.

To turn down the display brightness, go to Settings > Display

While there is no stated "auto-dim" setting, BlackBerry did have this to say about the display:

We spent a lot of time developing the "GLO" algorithm ("Garber Light Optimization", after the engineer who developed it) to automatically adjust the display backlight setting to provide the user with the same perceived brightness regardless of the ambient illumination level. The slider moves that auto-dimming curve up and down to match a user's preference.

This one can be a big help too. Most times there is no reason why you need to leave your screen on for more than 30 seconds after you use the device, so keeping this down from the minute range can be a huge
help. It will turn off the screen faster and save on battery. Heck, you can even jump down to 10 seconds and really feel good.

Turn down the screen timeout by going to Settings > Display

When you're on the go, make sure your device is locked and stowed away
so you don't "pocket dial". On the Z10 this is pretty easy since it
will lock on it's own when you're not using it, but you can kick it up
and use a holster to put the device to sleep as well. Making sure the
screen is locked keeps you from accidentally pressing icons and having
your Z10 do crazy things in your pocket. 

You can even disable the
swipe to unlock gesture under display settings to keep it from
accidentally turning on.

If you use a lot of social media or news apps, make sure you keep your
refresh settings at a high interval. Having something set to refresh
every five minutes will quickly eat away at battery life. In most
cases, you can get away with having apps refresh at one hour or more
(depending on your needs). So keep them high.

If you're killing your battery you can always go to extreme measures
and drop down your network. Chaning from LTE or 4G to GSM (2G) will
help conserve battery in desperate situations. Some devices (like my
unit on AT&T) may not have this option, but if it's there you can
always give it a shot.

Find this setting in Settings > Network Connections > Mobile Network

CLOSE ACTIVE FRAMESNot all Active Frames update in the background, but a lot of them do.
Things like battery apps or weather apps will refresh on their own if
you leave them open, and in turn eat up battery (although not a lot).
So when you're not using apps be sure to close out the Active Frame to
ensure that they aren't updating in the background and chipping away
at your battery.

Instead of using Exchange ActiveSync for email when setting up your
accounts, go IMAP instead. IMAP can be set to poll at intervals so you
won't constantly be pulling in mail and killing your battery. If you
aren't worried about instant notification, this can be a huge help to
battery life.

Duh. Want to keep your battery going? Charge it! I always have a
charger in my office, bedroom and car so when I'm just floating around
I can plug in and get some extra juice. Then when I head out, I know
I'm topped off and ready to rock. I've made it a habit to just plug in
when I'm around a charger so I never worry about my battery dying when
I need it most.

BlackBerry Z10 Charging Solutions


Want to be extra sure you never your Z10 never dies? Pick up the
BlackBerry Battery Charger Bundle for the BlackBerry Z10 and carry it
with you. Seriously. One of the great things about BlackBerry is being
able to swap out the battery, so why not take advantage of that? Carry
this one in your pocket, purse or briefcase and never be without extra
power. You can charge an extra battery in it or plug the unit itself
into your Z10 for some extra juice. At night, you can charge your
device AND the spare battery at the same time. What else could you

Microsoft launching Windows10 on July 29 for more personal computing

“Windows 10 starts to deliver on our vision of more personal computing, defined by trust in how we protect and respect your personal information, mobility of the experience across your devices, and natural interactions with your Windows devices, including speech, touch, ink and holograms,” said Terry Myerson, executive vice president, Microsoft in a statement.

The launch of Windows 10 comes after version 8 of Microsoft’s popular operating system was unveiled to the world in 2012.
Subsequently, an upgraded Windows 8.1 was unveiled in 2013 to the public.
Both Windows 8 and 8.1 have become synonymous with Microsoft’s tiled approach towards the operating system, which marked a departure from the operating system’s previous look-and-feel of version 7 and XP.
Windows 10, meanwhile, builds on Windows 8 and 8.1 by still retaining the tiled look, but also reintroducing the likes of the famous start menu.
In addition, Microsoft is promising that Windows 10 will have faster boot times, enable longer battery life, be more data secure , and be optimised for both keyboards and touchscreens.
Web browser Internet Explorer will also be killed off by Microsoft in Windows 10. The company is replacing Internet Explorer with its all-new browser Microsoft Edge, which promises to deliver a better web experience.
Other features that Windows 10 is expected to be packaged with includes Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana, which is a competitor to Apple’s Siri technology.
