Some research has shown that an average person spends at least 13 hours, or more than half a day, every week in the internet. This is just for an average user who checks his email and does a little bit of surfing and social networking. This means that people who use the internet for other purposes as well generally stays longer than 13 hours.

Although you cannot stop its battery from draining, you can at least extend its life by following some simple steps that we will provide below.
