Plug phone in so it charges when you aren't using it.

Turn off bluetooth when you are done using it. There should be a bluetooth icon in the status bar when it is on

Pull down your notification bar (swipe down from top edge of your screen) and there should be a button to toggle Bluetooth on/off. In not, there should be a settings icon in the top right corner) If you tap on that, there will be a section about Bluetooth there somewhere (depending on phone model, frequently under network and wireless). While having Bluetooth on does affect battery life, I don't really find it does so significantly (unless you have an active connection - meaning that it is connected and to and transceiving to/from a compatible Bluetooth device). Therefore, I really only recommend turning off Bluetooth to people who either never, or very infrequently use Bluetooth.
thanks all ... It got turned on accidentally ... after it drained my battery I turned it off. I wnat to know how to block that from happening again. How do I block blue tooth from toggling on accidentally?

There are some apps out there that can monitor your geographic location and turn bluetooth on and off as needed. Check the play store if you've got an android. I can't remember the name of the app.
Thanks. I'll check it out, Chad.
