How can I optimize battery life when using the Web SDK?

For certain scan-intensive use cases, you may need to consider the impacts of battery life.

The first things to try will not have any adverse impacts on performance (barcode recognition):

  - Decrease screen brightness (on device)

  - Reduce frame search area

  - Disable unneeded symbologies

  - Disable unneeded color inverted support for symbologies - default

 - Set maximum number of codes per frame to minimum required, often 1 - default

 - Set a precise symbol count range for enabled symbologies

Our default settings are optimized for barcode recognition.  In some cases, it may be worhwhile to trade off performance for battery life.  You can try the following:

- Reduce camera resolution

 - Throttle frame rate
