The use of laptop is not just limited to the geeks and this is what makes it an entity always in demand. But this device is of no use if it is discharged and you have no charging socket near you. A laptop without battery is just a stone that you can open and use its screen as mirror. There are ways by which you can improve your laptop’s battery life.


Low brightness of screen

It is one of those battery savings tips that work on smart phones too. It helps you squeeze out those precious minutes from your battery. You can adjust the brightness according to your needs.

Stop external devices

This way of reducing battery life is very helpful. If you are low on battery and have to finish up something urgent then plugging in various devices and using N number of laptop ports is not going to help you. If you have plugged in USB to charge your mobile then removing it can be helpful.

Get rid of extra processes

There are certain processes that run in the background but of no use for your work. You can go to the task manager and identify those processes and turn them off. This would help you in using your battery optimally and can help you with the system speed too.

Avoid multitasking

It might not be the best solution but if you see some extra programs or software already open although you don’t need them right away can be of great help. For example- if you are making a presentation and will be inserting some data from other documents in the later part of it then it is advisable you don’t keep that document open from the start. In the same manner playing music while working would drain the battery more rapidly.
