Lesson 5. Managing Power Consumption > Monitoring Battery Life

Monitoring Battery Life

Pocket PCs run off of battery power, and every Pocket PC device includes two types of batteries—a main battery, and a backup battery. The backup battery, which is a small silver disk that looks like a watch battery, is used only when the main battery runs out of power.

How long your main battery will last before requiring a recharge depends on a number of factors—the number and type of applications you're running, the level of display backlighting you've selected, and so on. (See the “Managing Power Usage” section later in this lesson.) In addition, different types of batteries last longer than others, and different Pocket PC models use more or less power than others.
