Wake Electric employees are prepped and ready for Hurricane Florence. Remember that you can check outages on our outage map at www.wemc.com. Be sure to charge your mobile devices before the storm hits so can check on the progress of restoration efforts.
If your power goes out, one of the ways you can conserve battery power in your mobile devices is to lower the brightness on the display.
Also, check your mobile device settings – they will give you an organized breakdown of what’s consuming your phone’s battery. Applications and features will display in a descending list of battery usage. If you see an application you barely use or a feature you never use, you’ll want to uninstall the app or turn off the feature.
Check your device settings for power saving modes that might limit the phone to texting, phone calls, Web browsing, and Facebook. This can squeeze extra hours or even a day of standby time out of just a few remaining percentage points of battery.
In your settings, find the list of apps that are currently running. You can turn off any apps that you don’t need running in the background all of the time.
