To always have the best connection and the most up-to-date energy usage information when your Powerpal and smart phone are within range of each other:
- Keep Bluetooth enabled on your phone at all times
- Keep the Powerpal app running (foreground or background)
If either of these two things are not true your Powerpal and your mobile phone may not be able to communicate with each other, and you will not receive energy usage alerts from the Powerpal app.
NOTE: Powerpal has been carefully designed to minimise the impact on your phone's battery life. Powerpal uses a low energy Bluetooth connection and keeping Bluetooth enabled in your phone settings may actually help to increase your phone's battery life!
