Computer Repair Expert Shares 3 Ways to Extend Your Laptop's Battery Life, King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

Laptops have become an invaluable asset for people on the go, and you can’t afford to deal with a dead battery. Whether you’re using it for leisure or work, a dead battery shouldn’t be something you have to worry about. There are plenty of ways to maximize battery life, according to the computer repair professionals at Experimac King of Prussia, serving the Philadelphia, PA, area. By making a few changes to how you use your laptop, you’ll reduce how much operating power is needed, ensuring you get the most from your battery.

3 Ways to Get the Most From Your Laptop’s Battery

1. Reduce the Brightness

computer repairIn most cases, you’ll rarely need your laptop on maximum brightness. To preserve battery life—adding up to 30 minutes or longer per charge—dim the screen to a reasonable level. Don’t do it so much that you’ll be straining your eyes, however. Going down a few notches is typically enough, and by reducing the backlight, either with a keyboard shortcut or through your “Settings” area, you’ll help preserve it.

2. Disable Bluetooth & Wi-Fi

Bluetooth is a great feature to have, but for most people, it’s not something they always need. Even if you aren’t using Bluetooth, the radio is actively looking for signals. The same goes for Wi-Fi. If you use neither, actively disable them through your control menu. Bluetooth management can be difficult to find on some devices, so speak with a computer repair professional if you need assistance.

3. Close Unused Windows & Programs

If you’ve stopped using a program or don’t need open windows in your browser anymore, close them. Even when idle, they’re still using processing power, in turn, contributing to battery drain. If you do need multiple programs and windows open, try to minimize or consolidate them and build the practice of regularly closing what you don’t need.
