The alert may include a notification of the estimated power remaining and an option to enable the battery saver mode. The alert may include a notification of the estimated power remaining and that battery saver mode has been enabled, and an option to disable the battery saver mode. The alert may include a notification of the estimated power remaining, and an option to customize the parameters of the battery saver mode by adjusting operation of various features and applications of the device.
