Tips On Retaining High Battery Life For Laptops

Laptops can be regarded as our babies. Every single time, we need to take good care of them, and always ensure that they have the key essentials to survive for a longer period of time. You would not wish to see your laptop die off on you while you are doing your work with it, would you? So it would be crucial for you to make sure that the battery life can last as long as possible and that it does not shut down on you too often. It could be quite a nuisance if that happens all the time.

Therefore, we would like to share with you five key tips on how your laptops’ battery life can be preserved for a much longer period of time, which can save you from having to recharge your laptops every one or two hours.

Bring down the light intensity of the laptop display. Every time you bring it down, you are saving the battery from losing ten minutes of its life. You should also lower down the monitor resolution and color quality that can help to increase the battery life as well.

Just click on the ‘Start’ button, then select ‘Control Panel’, followed by ‘Display’, and from there, go to ‘Settings’ and edit the screen resolution and color quality. You should even consider removing additional and unnecessary features so that your battery power will not be too largely utilized. Go to ‘Control Panel’ and then select ‘System’ followed by ‘Advanced’, in order to make the necessary changes.

Do not leave unutilized devices on for too long. If you are not using them, just switch them off, and if you think you need not use some of the gadgets at all, then it would be best that you remove them for good.

Switching them on for too long can eat up all the battery power, and it would be even worse off knowing that the laptop goes flat just because of devices that were turned on but not used at all. Devices like Bluetooth and Ethernet adapter are meant for transfer of data from handphones to laptops, and vice versa. However, if you do not require them, they should thus be disabled.

Control the actions that are taking place in the hard drive by using a disk defragmenter. This can reduce the rate that the hard disk has to go to gain access to the files and folders in it, which in turn can extend the battery life as well. Just click on ‘Start’, followed by ‘Programs’, ‘Accessories’ and ‘System Tools’ to begin the defragmenting.

Remove startup objects that are unnecessary for usage. Too many items that appear when your laptop starts up can accumulate the amount of memory in your CPU, thus using up a large amount of power in your laptop. Therefore, you are advised to remove them, by opening the applications and proceed to the ‘Options’ or ‘Preferences’ menu to do the necessary removal of the applications.

Keep the battery well maintained at all times. The battery must be charged up to 100 percent, and must be kept away from extremely high temperatures or under the hot sun. Batteries must always remain cool so that they can continue to provide the power for the laptops effectively.
