OBOZREVATEL has selected the most effective tips from experts to save your device's charge. Of course, it also depends on the wear and tear of the battery. If the battery capacity is low or if the laptop has started to work only when it is connected to the network over time, these life hacks will not help.

How to save laptop battery life

First of all, you should avoid using power-hungry applications whenever possible. Some of them require a lot of RAM. The easiest way to do this is to use Notepad instead of Microsoft Word.

Do not turn on the brightness of your laptop to full power. In most cases, medium screen brightness is sufficient for comfortable work.

Close unnecessary programs immediately and do not perform several tasks at once. But to save battery, it's better to keep the apps you use open rather than launching them several times every half hour.


Work only with the actual tabs in the browser, close unnecessary ones.

If you don't need Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, VGA, Ethernet, PCMCIA, USB, USB mouse, portable hard drives, USB webcams to work, it's best to turn them off.

When you need a break, don't turn off your laptop completely, but rather put it into sleep mode.

Experts also recommend lowering the screen resolution.

Make sure that the laptop does not overheat or overcool. In general, to prevent the battery from wearing out too quickly, you should not discharge the laptop below 20%.
