Tips to save battery life

 

To save and extend battery life, follow these steps:

 

Your device should have a Lithium-based battery which means that leaving it on the charger will not damage the battery, even if it is already fully charged. Take advantage of AC power sources when they are available at home or at work for extended periods of time.

 

You should only use chargers that are approved by the manufacturer.
