+Bloodheart Posted August 21, 2013 Share Posted August 21, 2013 My phone wasn't top of the line when it was bought 3 years ago, so now it's getting on a bit the battery life isn't as great, but I can't afford to replace it right now so it has to do. When geocaching it acts as my GPS, map, loads cache details, camera, internet for research on puzzles or to keep people informed about where I am, and as an MP3 player. With all these uses the phone battery drains within a few hours - yesterday I was only out a mere 3-4 hours, so not many caches found and missing out on some great photos. Fortunately as I don't go too far afield at worst this just means having to cut my trip short and doing without music on my way home, at least I don't have to worry about being in the middle of no where lost without a phone(!), but it's frustrating! Is there any other way to conserve battery life? Or is there a cheap means of charging my phone when I'm out and about? Any other cachers out there that use mobile phones for caching and can offer some advice? It's probably a long short, but I thought it was worth asking anyway Quote Link to comment
