You have either learnt the hard way or the smart way of "SAVING" battery. Internet and android guru's have been flushing us with tips and tricks that never seems to cease. Well for obvious reasons today, you would be learning a new way of doing business. If you are in Mi beta Team, when ever someone complains of battery drain complaints, I ask a lot of questions.

Just like our fingerprint, I believe battery usage varies from person to person. My device usage patterns are significantly different of the person who sits across. Having said that, draining the battery on your Mi device purposely could also be used as parameters of measurements. Apparently so T is not the new measurement "Yet". This may sound strange to you,but there are some situations that warrant draining the battery on your device purposely. For example, you have 2 device and you may want to store a device for a long period of time, or maybe you want to know how long it takes the battery to charge. Take a pick!


Statutory Warning

Completely discharging a Lithium ion battery is bad. (Period) You should only discharge the battery down to anywhere between 40% and 70% before recharging it. Advise cautionary steps and prevent the battery from getting below 20% at all times. You have been warned.

Having said that, let's get our hands dirty. Shall we? Today let me help you with an app that will drain the battery automatically and faster than normal. But, first, the ways to drain the battery on your Mi device manually, without 3rd party app.

The Manually Way a.k. The Plan "A"
I can indeed share few way right out of my sleeve.
Open the app which you think is the culprit, leave them running. This will drain the battery quickly, especially if you have a lot of apps. I would bank on Facebook App for obvious reasons. The funny cat videos or meme will keep me intertained for a long period of time. However, excersise caution on the data usage stats, After all, these experiments shouldn't burn a hole in our pocket, now do we?

Keep The Screen Awake
Your phone allows you to, set the screen to never go off in the lock screen settings. This will drain the battery faster. If your phone doesn’t have an option to leave the screen on indefinitely, use the Smart Lock feature, when you’re in trusted situations.
Go to Settings->Lock Screen & Password -> Sleep -> Never




Change Your Screen’s Brightness to Maximum
To drain the battery faster, change your screen’s brightness to maximum. Go to “Settings” > “Display” > “Brightness level” (or “Brightness“). You’ll have to turn off  “Auto brightness” to turn up the brightness all the way.

Turn On Wi-Fi When You’re Not In Range Of a Wi-Fi Network
If you’re in an area without Wi-Fi available, turn Wi-Fi on to drain the battery as your device tries to find a Wi-Fi network.

Drain The Battery Automatically & Faster Than Normal a.k.a Plan "B"
Fast Discharge is a free app that discharges your device’s battery significantly fast, and without requiring you to action any of the steps mentioned above.

Once installed, the “Battery power” at the top of the screen indicates current battery level. The “Goals battery” percentage shows the percentage you want the battery to discharge to. Use the slider to change this value. But wear caution as advised earlier. It's never too late to bank on good pratices.

Below the slider, select the methods you want to use to discharge the battery. The more methods you select, the faster the battery will discharge. The “Operated vibrator” could get you a lot of attn for obvious reasons.

To start the discharge process, tap “Discharge inception“.

After a while, you’ll see the remaining time display to the right of the “Goals battery” percentage.

Voila! You have now learnt a neat thing. Tell you what! You have now awakend the inner geek which wasn't before reading the "Know-How Series".

It's never too late to read these topics. Checkout the cool topic links.
