FoneGuide: Battery saving apps for Android
Extending the battery life on your phone needn’t be stressful.

Android battery cover

Whether your smartphone has a massive battery or not, we've all run into the same problem of eventually running out of juice. Most high-end phones, like the HTC One X, Nokia Lumia 920 or Xperia T, forgo removable covers for the sake of seamless design, which unfortunately also crosses out the possibility of simply plugging in a fresh battery.

As always, there’s an app for that. Not to magically charge up your battery out of thin air, but, by carefully managing your existing charge, to prevent your smartphone taking a nap at the most inappropriate moment. Read on to find out just what options are there to get the most out of your battery.

JuiceDefender

JuiceDefender has earned its reputation for its comprehensive battery-saving skills. It's packed with smart functions that automatically manage various battery draining components on your phone. Through the five battery saving profiles, the users can easily decide how aggressively the app should control phone's functions.

For example, with the balance profile, JuiceDefender will only disable your 3G Internet connection when the phone is idle. The full version of JuiceDefender will give you extra control over other key elements that consumer battery on your phone.

Battery Booster

Using simple and clear instructions, Battery Booster provides quick means to control various power-hungry systems on your Android device. At the same time, the app also provides detailed real-time battery usage information, so you can see it for yourself which apps and features consume most power.

Battery Booster also supports custom modes - something most free apps do not - letting you fine-tune the behaviour of the app according to how you use your phone. For example, you can specify the time or charge level when the battery saving features kicks in.

2x Battery

Another good app for getting extra juice out of your smartphone, 2x Battery is as simple as it is effective. The main dashboard view encompasses virtually everything you need to know, including how long until the battery runs out, and whether any particularly power-hungry apps are running.

Equally as important as extending your battery life, the app also keeps important background data processes running, so you can still get your email and social network notifications. And while not as flexible as some other battery saving apps, 2x Battery gains additional points for not confusing users with large amounts of settings and sub-menus.
