Has your phone ever died while you were trying to Waze home? Or your laptop shut off midway through a Dota game?

We've all been there, and it sucks every single time.

Here are a few tricks to help your battery last longer:

1. If you're on your laptop, try to do one thing at a time and close all apps or web pages you aren't actively using

As much as you like to multitask, having multiple apps or web pages open simultaneously can increase the battery consumption on your devices.

2. Also, remember to plug out all the cables and USB devices that you aren't using from your laptop

3. While most of us do this on a daily basis, try not to leave your laptop on permanent charge

Although your battery will not overcharge, it will still deteriorate over time. The more often your laptop is charging, the more worn out the battery will get.

4. For longer performance, turn on the battery-saving mode to optimise your battery usage

Almost all gadgets will include battery-saving features so make use of them! 

5. Lower the screen brightness and adjust the sleep time for all your gadgets and devices

Lowering your brightness level to below 50% can help your battery last at least 2 hours longer. This tip not only applies to your laptop and phones, but also smartwatches!

6. For those of you who wear smartwatches, block out those unnecessary notifications

Sometimes, all you need your watch to do is to tell the time.

7. If you drive with Waze or Google Maps often, make sure to turn off your GPS when not in use

Or you could always go for a paper map.

8. When you're out and your phone is getting low on battery, you should turn off your Wi-Fi, data, hotspot, and roaming

If possible, try to limit your Internet usage, especially if you're outside without a power bank or charger. Going online, especially with hotspot, can cause your battery to go down to 0% way sooner than you think.

9. If you want to conserve battery on your phone, resist the temptation to binge-watch videos, whether it's Instagram Stories, YouTube, or Netflix

Going down the YouTube black hole will not only drain you, but also drain your battery really quickly.

10. For those of you with lots of mobile apps, disable auto-updates and WiFi syncing for your apps as these can also take up battery life

11. Finally, when in doubt, use the age-old trick of activating flight mode
