How To Increase Battery Life For Nook Color (maybe)

Fellow Nook Color enthusiast and Word Feud rival, Ryan, sent in this tip for improving Nook Color Battery Life.  It involves disabling a core service in the Android OS called “Cell Standby Service.”  It’s normally used to allow Android cell phones to receive phone calls & text messages while on standby.  However, seeing as our Nook Colors don’t have these telephony functions, it’s a waste to have this service on and wasting battery.

Head on over to addictivetips for detailed steps for how to turn off this battery wasting service.

*note:  it’s uncertain how much battery this will save, but it definitely can’t hurt to try, and it’s a reversible process.  I will do some battery tests and post the results.

(Thanks Ryan)
