The given below are some useful tips and tricks on how to make the battery of your laptop last for as long as possible. As per my view for adding years to the battery life of your laptop you need to avoid the waste. Let's discuss how!
1. Switch to the Eco or Saver mode
By switching to such modes the battery will automatically make some changes on your laptop which will surely lengthen the battery life.
2. Disable the Unused Ports and Devices
The easiest and the best way to reduce the battery consumption is to limit the work or to simply turn the stuff off. Every part of your laptop needs some power or battery consumption so as to function like we need Petrol or Deisel to run our vechiles. But it isn't compulsary to power all the parts of your laptop all the time, you should power only the needeed parts. This is also a useful way to lengthen the battery life of your laptop. You should disconnect all the unneeded peripherals like your external USB drive, the USB mouse etc. You should also switch off the power hogs like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, unused optical drives and graphic processors etc.
3. Keyboard Backlighting
Do you know that the keyboard backlighting is also a great battery consumer? So you should turn off the keyboard backlighting when not needed. You can turn on the keyboard backlighting in the dark areas but make sure to avoid the unneccessary use.
4. Adjust the Settings of the Screen
I guess you don't need the 100% brightness and the full HD resolutions all the time. So why do you waste the battery in such cases? You should mostly keep the brightness level of your laptop around 50%. As 50% brightness is enough to have a clear view. The next step is to reduce the screen resolutions when you don't need the high resolutions.
5. Sound Level
Do you know that the sound level in your laptop is also a reason of battery consumption? You should always turn off the sound when not required. Or if you don't want to do so then you should swtich down the sound level. Both the ways will affect the battery life of your laptop.
6. Turn Off the Apps & Processes
This is also a effective way to lengthen the battery life of your laptop. All you need to do is press the Ctrl + Shift + Esc or Ctrl + Alt + Del buttons to open the task manager. And then find the applications which are running unnecessarily and then close them.
7. Avoid Multitasking
Multitasking is a great reason of making the battery life short. You should avoid multitasking as much as possible. You should always try to open only one application at one time. This will surely save the battery life.
So these were the seven best ways to increase the battery life of your laptop.
I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
