How to get a Pocket PC or PDA's batteries to last longer.

Here are some tips that will work for any PDA.

1. Remove expansion cards when they aren't being used.
Wireless network cards are usually the biggest
battery hogs.

2. Get your PDA to shut off automatically if you don't
use it for 30-seconds to a minute. This is suspension
mode on your PocketPC.

3. Turn off the backlight. The backlight may make the
screen look pretty, but it isn't always needed. Try
setting the backlight to an outdoor mode.
