Turn off keyboard backlights

Turn down the volume

Completely muting your device helps you extend your battery life. When you watch movies or videos, keep the sound at the minimum volume level. You can also plug in your headphones to reduce the impact on battery life.

Disconnect unnecessary peripherals

So it’s about time, you should consider abandoning those external hard drives, inkjet printers, memory sticks and USB-powered mug warmers until you find a nearby charging outlet.

Update Windows while charging

Sometimes, installing the latest Windows 10 updates can take more than one hour. Of course, the download and install process use a certain amount of battery power. You can install the updates while your device is charging to save both time and battery power.

Check Battery usage by app

You can see which apps are using the most battery resources by Settings > System > Battery and click Battery usage by app. The list will show you the percentage of battery your apps have used in the past 6 or 24 hours or the past week. If you find an app that you think it using more than its fair share, click on it and toggle off the switch for Managed by Windows and then make sure the box remains unchecked for Allow app to run background tasks.

Keep your laptop out of hot and cold.
