How to extend your laptop's battery life and make sure it doesn't die at the crucial moment

How to extend your laptop's battery life and make sure it doesn't die at the crucial moment

But despite huge advances in the power and capabilities of these devices, dwindling battery life remains a problem for many.

There's nothing more frustrating than your laptop battery dying while you're working in a café or on the train, with no access to a power socket.

To help combat this, independent tech retailer Ebuyer has put together some tips to help you get the most from your laptop's battery.

Switch off WiFi when not being used

Although most of your laptop use will likely require internet access, there is an option to disable the Wi-Fi features for when it is not in use.

The Wi-Fi adapter draws a lot of power from the battery, so switching it off when you are somewhere with no coverage could save you a significant portion of battery life.

To do this, there is often a shortcut button feature on your keyboard, but if not, this can be done by accessing the settings through the start menu, selecting ‘Network & Internet’ and then the Wi-Fi tab which can be simply switched off. Akku für Acer Aspire 4741

This can be replicated with the Bluetooth adaptor, which can also be turned off by accessing the ‘Devices’ section on your settings home page.

Dim the backlight

The brightness of the screen is one of the most significant factors that can affect battery life.Akku für Dell Precision M6400

Backlights allow you to clearly see the colours of your LCD or LED display and, although markedly improved from where they once were, still use a substantial amount of power.

Dimming your backlight is easy to do and should reserve a significant amount of battery. Akku für Apple A1281

A simple way to adjust this is to use a keyboard shortcut, which is an available function on most laptops, (usually the Fn button, plus one of the F-number keys on the top row).

Alternatively, you can navigate to the system settings via the start button, select ‘System’ and then adjust the brightness on the scale accordingly under the ‘Devices’ tab.

Use your battery once it's charged

A lot of people like to keep their laptop battery on permanent charge unless they are using it on the move. This can be detrimental to the longevity of your battery.

Some laptops do include a battery care function to avoid this issue by preventing batteries from being fully charged, but the best practice is to run your battery down before charging it to increase its lifespan.

Disconnect any unnecessary peripherals

Every process you run on a laptop needs the battery to power the function.Akku für Apple A1321

Simple dormant items such as an unused disc sitting in your disc drive, an external microphone or an attached USB will impact the efficiency of your battery, so removing those when not in use will be extremely beneficial.

Manage your applications and programs

There are plenty of people out there who are guilty of having countless internet tabs open on their web browser.

Whilst it is an impressive feat for your laptop to maintain all those pages, more power is required from the battery to keep those applications running.

Simply closing any unused tabs will not only speed your laptop up but will prolong its running time as well.Akku für Dell Vostro 3500

This is the same if running multiple programs at once. There is nothing wrong with doing this, but once you’re no longer using a certain program or software, it is good practice to close them down until you need them again.Akku für Asus A32-K52

Change your power settings

There is a solution as simple as changing your battery settings to ‘Battery Saver’ mode, which is particularly useful when on the move.

With a lot of laptops, there is a shortcut to adjusting your power settings to ‘power saver’ by simply clicking the battery icon on your toolbar in the bottom right corner and adjusting the slider scale down.

Alternatively, you can access the ‘Control Panel’ through the start menu, select ‘Hardware and Sound’ and alter your battery settings in the ‘Power Options’ section, which will reduce the power consumption of your system processes by minimising background activity. Akku für Dell Latitude E7240

Get ready for a flood of Intel-powered PCs with long battery life

Laptops from companies like Dell have been certified as Project Athena, which means they have long battery life and meet other requirements set by Intel.

A wave of Intel-powered laptops are about to get thinner, lighter -- and a lot more power efficient.

This week at the IFA electronics trade show in Berlin, Acer, Asus, Lenovo, MSI and Razer plan to unveil new laptops using Intel's Comet Lake 10th-generation Core processors. Some of those devices will meet Intel's new Project Athena requirements, designing computers to be even more mobile. Details on the new PCs will roll out over the coming days, Intel said.

The Santa Clara, California, chipmaker first talked about Project Athena at Computex in May. The aim of the program is to make PCs even more mobile, like smartphones. People spend an increasing amount of time on their phones and less time on their PCs, and they're holding onto computers for much longer than their smartphones. The answer for Microsoft and traditional PC makers has been to turn computers into something more like phones. They've been working with Qualcomm on such devices for a couple of years, and now Intel, the world's biggest PC chipmaker -- is jumping into the fray. Akku für DELL XPS L501x

As CNET's Stephen Shankland put it, Intel wants us to "love our laptops the way we love our phones."

Machines designed through Project Athena are supposed to be different. They're meant to wake instantly, sport brighter screens for outdoor use and have battery life that lasts all day. Project Athena laptops also need to be able to complete a biometric login process in a second or less after a laptop lid is opened, and Athena gets an additional second to connect to Wi-Fi.

They're initially going to be pricey laptops, but the features should eventually make their way to less-expensive devices, as well, Intel said. Many of the first devices are older designs with Intel's new Comet Lake chips inside.

"What Intel wants to do with Project Athena is really drive a wider range of products to hit those thinner designs, longer battery life and better performance numbers," Technalysis Research analyst Bob O'Donnell said.

Battling Snapdragon PCs

Intel's move comes partly in response to an effort by chip rival Qualcomm to build something similar. The company started working with Microsoft and PC makers about two years ago to develop computers that use its Snapdragon processor and seamlessly convert between laptops and tablets. They typically have 4G connectivity and batteries that last the entire day. Companies like Lenovo and HP have released Snapdragon-powered laptops.Laptop Battery for HP HS04

The latest Snapdragon 8cx-powered Windows PC is Samsung's Galaxy Book S, which the company unveiled last month at its Unpacked event in New York. The LTE-enabled device, which CNET reviewer Josh Goldman called "insanely thin," has 23 hours of battery life and will cost $999 when it arrives this month.

"It looks like a laptop, and it's got the essence of a smartphone, the best of both worlds," Hassan Anjum, Samsung director of product strategy and marketing, said at the Galaxy Book S launch. "You have the freedom to work anywhere, anytime."

By comparison, with Project Athena, laptops have to have "real world" battery life -- like web browsing -- of at least nine hours, and charging the devices for half an hour should add four additional hours of battery life.

Already, several machines from Dell, HP and Lenovo have been certified as Project Athena compatible. Those are the Dell Inspiron 14 5000, Dell Latitude 7400 2-in-1, Dell XPS 13 2- in-1, HP EliteBook x360 1040, HP EliteBook x360 1030 G4, Akku TOSHIBA Satellite L750, HP EliteBook x360 830 and Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

Intel said devices that meet its Project Athena requirements will feature "Engineered for Mobile Performance" marketing.
