Tip of the Week: 6 Ways to Charge Your Mobile Device Battery Faster

For this week’s tip, we’ll go over your options for getting a faster charge from your battery.

Turn Off the Device
First of all, try turning off your device whenever you choose to charge it. This means that instead of powering your device’s apps, your battery will instead be devoted to the singular task of recharging itself. Of course, there will always be a situation when you won’t be anywhere near an outlet, so you’ll need to make the most out of your charging time. Since we know that you can’t always turn off your device to max out the charge of your battery, here are a few ways you can do so without turning off your device completely.

Disable Your Internet Connection
Even if you’re not trying to use the Internet on your device, it still uses some extra battery power to connect. This is mainly due to connected apps that send notifications, like Facebook or your email app. If you don’t want to use your Internet connection, you can turn it off and still get work done by turning on airplane mode. This lets you take advantage of apps like your calendar, calculator, and alarm clock, but comes at the sacrifice of not being able to use your phone function.

Disable Your Bluetooth
You should only turn Bluetooth on when you need to use it, as it can be a battery drainer.

Try a Wall Outlet
A USB port might be a great way to charge your device while you’re on the move, but the problem with this is that charging via USB is often less powerful than using a wall charger. The reasoning for this is that the outlet typically provides more energy than the device’s port, so you might experience a decrease in battery performance if you choose to use the USB option. In fact, in some scenarios, you may even notice that using a USB port will only slow the process of battery drain, which can be unfortunate and frustrating.

When you think about it, this makes quite a bit of sense. PC Adviser explains how various chargers will have different charging capability: “While a PC's USB port is specified at 2.5W for USB 1.0 and 2.0 and 4.5W for USB 3.0 (so always use a USB 3.0 port in preference to USB 1.0 or 2.0 when available), a phone charger might be rated at 5W and a tablet charger 10W, for example.”

Get a New Charger
Just because you’ve plugged your phone into a wall doesn’t necessarily mean that you will get the best quality charge. A charger might only use 5W when the device can accept as much as 10W, so you could be wasting valuable time to get more charge out of your device. Upgrading your charger to the appropriate wattage can help you best take advantage of your device’s charging capabilities. If you’re unsure of which type of charger best suits your device’s capabilities, check out the owner’s manual.

Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0
If you want to take things a bit further, external solutions can be an exceptional way to maximize the value you get from your device’s battery. Quick Charge 2.0 allows for a 3300mAh battery to reach at least 60 percent capacity in just a short half-hour. An ordinary 5W charger allows your device to only reach about 12 percent in a half-hour. There is a catch, though; your device needs to be running specific Snapdragon processors. Make sure that your device is capable of this feature before trying it out.

Own a Vizio TV? You May Not Like What Vizio Knows About You

Vizio (which was acquired last year by LeEco) was fined by the Federal Trade Commission for collecting data on its users about what their televisions were displaying, down to the second! To make matters worse, this monitoring extended beyond the built-in smart TV apps. Literally, whatever the TV displayed, Vizio knows. We’re talking over the air broadcasts, cable set-top boxes, the TV’s IP addresses, even DVD players.

The fine levied against Vizio by the FTC totaled $2.2 million. Plus, a federal court ordered Vizio to delete any data it collected before March of 2016. Prior to this date, Vizio TV owners were uninformed by the company of the data collection practice. Now, however, Vizio’s customers can find information on the company’s data sharing practices in the automated content recognition section of their TV’s settings menu.

To help make amends, Vizio began sending users on-screen notifications on viewing data collection practices, a feature they initiated before the settlement was announced. Vizio General Counsel Jerry Huang said in a statement, “Instead, as the complaint notes, the practices challenged by the government related only to the use of viewing data in the 'aggregate' to create summary reports measuring viewing audiences or behaviors. Today, the FTC has made clear that all smart TV makers should get people's consent before collecting and sharing television viewing information and Vizio now is leading the way.”

What was Vizio doing with all of this detailed data? In a best-case scenario, the company would use data on the product’s usage to better understand the resilience of its hardware (like how often the TV is turned on and off) so they can make improvements on future models. Although, it’s more likely that the collection of such detailed data was sold to partners for marketing purposes. Data collection practices like these make for a very lucrative industry, so it’s no stretch of the imagination to see how Vizio would want a piece of this pie.

While the ethics of data collection can be debated, it’s clear that, in retrospect, Vizio would have been better off giving customers the option to opt in or opt out of its data collection practices. Does the revelation of Vizio’s actions make you think twice about how you use your own Internet-connected devices? Or have you let go of any semblance of privacy long before the FTC handed down this ruling? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

Keeping All of Your Company’s Technology Up-to-Date is a Chore... that You Can Outsource!

Staying on top of updates must happen routinely
This is one of the major shortcomings of break-fix IT companies. If the only time they come and work on your IT equipment is for a repair visit, it’s unlikely that they will make a special trip to your office to install needed software updates as soon as they’re released. And why would they, when their entire business model revolves around your equipment breaking down?

Instead, you need someone assigned to the task of staying on top of the latest software updates, which includes both knowing when the updates and patches are scheduled to be released, as well as applying them in a timely manner that won’t disrupt office productivity (applying updates after-hours is preferable).

Does your IT staff even have time for routine maintenance?
For many organizations, keeping software up-to-date is the job of the in-house IT staff, and given the negative ramifications of mishandling these updates, it’s not a task to give to an employee lacking technical training. Alternatively, if it’s not in your budget to onboard new IT staff, then you can outsource this responsibility to a managed IT service provider. The managed service advantage is that you’re getting trained technicians to remotely apply your network’s needed updates, and at an ideal time that fits your company’s schedule.

As a bonus, for businesses that do have an IT department (but find their IT staff is overstretched from having to do routine tasks like applying updates), NSN Management offers a co-managed IT service where our techs work with your techs to take care of the small stuff, so your team can be freed up to work on important IT initiatives.

Thinking beyond updating your security patches, you need to stay on top of all available updates for your company’s technology. Here are just a few technologies that technicians look at when determining what needs to be upgraded.

Operating systems: We all have our favorite operating systems, but clinging to an OS after the manufacturer stops supporting it (simply because it’s preferred) is a dangerous move that opens up your network to all kinds of trouble. In order to have your OS offer adequate protection for your business, it must be supported with patches and security updates.
Legacy applications: Upgrading software can be tricky because an update that’s untested has the potential to clash with a legacy application and cause some serious downtime. For example, you shouldn’t overlook how application upgrades running locally on PC hardware can also influence whether or not end-user hardware requires an upgrade. Therefore, be sure to look into the upgrade requirements (such as processing power, memory, graphics, etc.) before clicking the install button. This is one reason why many businesses prefer hosting their legacy applications in the cloud; to protect workflows from the unintended consequences of a bad upgrade.
Hardware quality: Computer hardware requires some update love too. Eventually, computers break down. By not staying on top of your hardware, you’re opening yourself up to faulty equipment hindering productivity, or even dreaded downtime. If you’re currently facing a need to upgrade your hardware, then now is a great time to consider making the move to the cloud. By hosting your applications in the cloud, you’re able to access the data you need with inexpensive hardware like thin clients, while still enjoying the benefits of a fully loaded (and expensive) workstation. Also, don’t forget about your computer’s peripherals, like upgrading to USB 3.1.

For the average SMB, staying on top of all of these technology upgrades can be a major pain point, and one that can sneak up on you when everything seems to be working fine. To outsource all of your upgrade responsibilities to a company you can trust, give NSN Management a call today at 918-770-7400.
