Save Money: If a user's phone is working more slowly these days, they might be thinking of replacing it. However, they don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a new, full-power phone. In fact, replacing a phone's battery can cost up to $1,000 less than purchasing a new phone.

Save Time: Transferring data to a new phone can take hours. An appointment to replace a phone's battery takes less than an hour, and customers can easily schedule an appointment with a Batteries Plus Bulbs technician online at batteriesplus.com.

Save Battery Life: Weakened batteries are the most common problem that causes users to purchase a new phone. While replacing the battery is a cost- and time-effective solution, it's best to avoid a worn-down battery from the start. Here are a few tips on how to get the most life out of phone batteries:

  • Avoid letting the phone die or charging it to 100%

  • Keep the phone charged from 30-80% at all times

  • Delete any apps that are on the phone but aren't used

  • Turn off location services on any apps where it's not absolutely needed

Other Repairs: If a worn-out battery isn't the problem for smartphone users, they can also replace their phone screens, repair charger ports and broken cameras or diagnose water damage at their local Batteries Plus Bulbs. To find their local Batteries Plus Bulbs store, they can visit https://www.batteriesplus.com/store-locator.
