5 Tips to Extend the Battery Life of Your Nexus 7 Tablet

A surefire way to make a Nexus 7 tablet’s battery last a good long time is to never turn on the device in the first place. That’s kind of impractical, so rather than let you use your Nexus 7 as a lovely paperweight, here are a few suggestions you can follow to help prolong battery life in your Nexus 7:

Lower the volume: Additionally, consider lowering the volume for the various noises the Nexus 7 makes, especially notifications.

Use headphones: A good set of headphones uses far less power than the tablet’s speakers, and they make the audio sound better.

Dim the screen: If you look at the battery display, you can see that the display (labeled Screen) sucks down quite a lot of battery power. Though a dim screen can be more difficult to see, especially outdoors, it definitely saves on battery life.

Adjust the screen timeout: Make the screen sleep at a shorter interval to save valuable battery life. Or manually lock the tablet, especially if you’re just listening to music.

Turn off Bluetooth: When you’re not using Bluetooth, turn it off.
