Keeping them on is not likely to drain a huge amount of battery, although if you really want to completely maximise efficiency, it helps slightly.Having your cellular radio look for signal in areas where there isn't any, however, is very draining. You can activate airplane mode if you don't need a mobile signal. And if you can connect to Wi-Fi, do it: Using 4G or 3G drains the battery far quicker than Wi-Fi does.Having your cellular radio look for signal in areas where there isn't any, however, is very draining.
