Default Battery Strength on airplane

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

What's the best way to preserve battery life on an airplane? Turning off the unit itself or just turning off the mobile network under connections icon and then going into standby mode. Someone told me that turning it on and off used more power.

Thanks

ok lets get technical here...

for starters its an FAA regulation that you disable all wireless connections while in flight. so the first thing if anything would be to turn off the mobile network. Now putting the device in standby mode is just a way of preventing you accidently hitting buttons or dialing out when the phone is in your pocket. the device is still on when its in standby, furthermore the phone will be constantly trying to maintain its integrity in standby mode and therefore will be using battery power. if its a short flight and by short i mean 45 mins or less, i suppose standby wouldnt be soooo bad. however for those flights that are a couple of hours i would def just turn the device off.

Let's not get technical.
To save the battery, turn the device off.
