Playing Pokemon Go is bad news for your phone battery – so much so that Carphone Warehouse says sales of battery packs have shot up 60% since it launched.

But you don’t necessarily have to fork out.

Carphone Warehouse marketing director Steve Bell said: ‘Pokémon Go inevitably drains battery life as it uses the camera, GPS and data connection at the same time.’

There’s a few key steps you can take to ensure your battery drain stays low, though – even if you’re on a cross-town quest for rare Pokemon.

A 'free' game.

Yeah. OK.


Nintendo Co. shares rose 13% to ¥22,840 ($222.16) in Tokyo trading Tuesday following a 25% surge on Monday, pushing the videogame maker’s market capitalization above $30 billion.

The sudden change in Nintendo’s fortunes rests on investors’ anticipation for profits from “Pokémon Go,” an application for smartphones in which players look for animated characters superimposed on real-life images on their phone screens. The app is free to download, and the revenue comes from purchases that players can make within the app, such as incense to lure the Pokémon creatures.
