Tricks to improve Battery backup of OnePlus 6/6T

Let’s check out some of tips to improve the battery backup of OnePlus 6/6T:

Custom kernel

The first method and the most effective method is to flash a custom Kernel. The stock kernel’s priority is always performance and then efficiency. That is the reason why the device hasn’t slowed down yet but the battery backup has taken a hit. The other reason for poor battery backup could be the reduced battery capacity or poor battery health. So if we use a custom Kernel it can give a balance between good performance and better battery life. Users can expect up to 6-7 hours of SOT depending on their usage. There are a lot of Kernels available to try we have provided the links below for the best kernel available for Oneplus 6/6T.

To flash a custom Kernel you need to unlock the bootloader of your device and have a custom recovery like TWRP.

  • If you want to know how to unlock the bootloader click on the link.
  • To know how to install custom recovery click on the link (You can leave the steps after step 2 that’s all is required).

After you have finished installing the TWRP recovery for your device simply download the kernel files from the link provided below and flash the zip file using TWRP.

Blocking background process of unused apps

There are a lot of apps whose background process is always running unnecessarily. Users can simply block their background processes to clear up some amount of RAM and to stop their background battery consumption. apps like Netflix, PUBG, Prime video, Amazon, Flipkart does not require anything essential to run in the background and we can force stop them from using the resources. To know how to stop background consumption of apps like these or any other similar type of apps follow the below steps to do so.

  • Go to settings>> Battery
  • Click on Battery optimization
  • A list of all the apps should have opened

List of Apps to optimise

  • Click on each app individually that you need to stop from background consumption, then select optimize option.

Select optimise from the options

  • That’s it do the same for the apps that don’t require to run in the background.

NOTE- Do not optimize the apps whose notifications are important like social media or music player. It can interfere with the notification service of the app.

Changing a few toggles

The third one is not that effective but it can give a slight bump. This is the easiest of all. Simply we have to turn on the App WIFI Multi/Broadcasting Filter, WIFI scan throttling and turning off the WIFI and Bluetooth always scanning. All of these toggles combined consume battery even when the phone is in idle state. It doesn’t help in a way to make the overall experience better so turning it off is a better option. Follow the below steps to turn on the App WIFI Multi/Broadcasting Filter and WIFI scan throttling and turn off the scanning of Bluetooth and wifi.

  • go to settings>> about Phone
  • Tap on Build number 7 times and then enter the Passcode of your device
  • Now Go to System>> Developer Options
  • Scroll down and look for the toggles which are required to turn on, for reference check the screenshot below

Turn on the Toggles as mentioned

  • Next in the settings only Go to the location
  • Select Wifi and Bluetooth scanning
  • Turn off both the toggles for Bluetooth as well as WIFI

Turn off the WIFI scanning and bluetooth scanning toggles to improve battery backup

  • That’s it now you have successfully optimised your phone to give a better battery backup.
