    1. Turn Down Screen Brightness Life:
    Where does a lot of that battery power go? Right to your screen. The screen is one of the parts that take up a lot of battery power to keep it looking clear and bright. To save power, one simple trick you can do is decrease the brightness.

    You can find the screen brightness button on one of the F keys. You will see a little sun icon on it. It might also be on one of the arrow keys on some computer models. Usually, you will have to hold down the FN key to activate the trigger.

    2. Adjust the Power Settings in your laptop:
    There are some great features on your computer that you probably never even look at. One option you have is to get the best performance possible when you are plugged into a power source and the chance to optimize battery life when you are not.

    It’s as easy as typing the search phrase “Power Options” into your start search bar and then choose “Power Saver” from that list. Depending on your laptop and operating system, there should be more than a few options for saving battery life.

    3. Turn off the Wi-Fi if not needed:
    Another important tip is to switch off the Wi-Fi if you aren’t using it. Even if you aren’t signed into a Wi-Fi access point, your computer will continually look for options, destroying the life out of your laptop.

    When you are using your laptop away from a wireless network that you can get access to, turn this off. Many laptops have a simple button that you can enable to turn it off. Some older laptops do not have this, so you may have to go into the Notification Center and manually turn it off.

    4. Turn off The USB Peripherals:
    Peripherals, you are draining the battery life of your laptop. This is because your motherboard has to power them – even if you aren’t using them. So if you have made it a practice to just put your phone charger there, for instance, you are actually draining power continually. Another offender of this battery draining is USB sticks, mice, and webcams. If you are trying to save battery life, you may just have to use your normal trackpad.

    5. Eject Your Disc Drives
    Disc that spins in the drive, even if you aren’t actively using it, can be a vast drain on the power resources of your laptop. All you have to do is eject your discs before you switch to battery power to gain some extra time on that battery.

    6. Consider Helping Your Battery Have the Best Chance
    Just having some good practices when it comes to your laptop can be enough to extend its life. Most laptops come with a six-cell battery, but there are better ones on the market that have 8 cells or even 12 cells. If you plan on needing your laptop to have a lot of battery life, this is where you may want to upgrade.

    You do have another option: portable laptop battery chargers. These are a bit bulky and you will have to carry them with you, but they can give you some great extended time on your laptop.

    7. Take Care of Your Battery While It Is Healthy
    One of the best things you can do for your battery is simply maintain it. You want to use your battery off of the charger when it has been completely charged. Make sure that you get enough airflow and that you aren’t plugging it into a faulty outlet for the charge.

    You should also check to make sure that your charging cord isn’t twisted or covered up – you can do quite a bit of damage by stepping on it or even bending it too far.
