Google announced a host of new features at Google I/O in San Francisco last month for its upcoming release of Android L. Among those features was a very well received feature called Project Volta. Project Volta is a feature built into the next version of Android and its sole purpose is to help you increase your battery life. In a recent test, Project Volta help a Nexus 5 go from 351 minutes to 471 minutes on the exact same battery test when Volta was applied.

That is a 36% increase in battery life – which is very impressive. The fact that Android L uses ART runtime also helps with new battery life. All in all, it looks like Android L is finally breaking down the battery life barrier and you won’t have to go looking for chargers halfway through the day.
