Most Pokémon Go players have likely realized by now that the new Nintendo app is a battery killer, which seems more than a little counterintuitive when you consider that it’s a game all about being untethered and exploratory. While there isn’t a way to outright eliminate Pokémon Go’s hunger for battery power, there are steps you can take to prolong your Pokémon adventures significantly. Follow some or all of the following battery saving tips and you’ll be really be able to catch ’em all (or at the very least add a ton more Pidgeys to your collection).
