It’s obvious that we are addicted to laptops but without battery it is no more than a paperweight. Laptops has a battery life of about 3-4 hours. So what if you could do something to increase your laptop’s battery life i.e making it last for some few extra hours. Won’t that we wonderful?
But with this  methods on how to increase battery life of Laptop PCs.
*Close Background Running Applications.
In simple terms, anything your laptop does, requires power. Therefore, when your laptop is running on battery, shutting down applications that you aren’t using instead of minimizing it to Windows taskbar is preferable.
This important to extend laptop’s battery life because all these add to the CPU load and consumes battery power/life
*Turn Down Display Brightness.
Laptop’s screen with lager display (14-inch to 18-inch) is the single component that consumes a lot of battery power. To avoid this battery loss you can lower down screen brightness to the dimmest setting you can tolerate.
However, you might need to increase brightness depending on where you are. For instance, if you’re sitting under direct sunlight you’ll have to increase screen brightness.
*Turn off Bluetooth and Wireless Connections.
You need laptop’s Bluetooth and wireless connection to send and receive file or to connection with people around the world. But when you aren’t using these connections turn them off.
Because, both Bluetooth and WiFi connections (3G, 4G Broadband) drains a portion of battery by sending and receiving wireless signal data.
*Setup & Optimize Power Option.
The Windows operating  system allows you to setup and optimize battery power supply. In control panel find power option and set it up as per your requirement.
There are two basic and three additional power plans which can help you maximize your laptop computer’s performance or conserve energy.
Use Hibernate Option Over Standby
Although in standby mode your laptop recovers your data quickly as it is stored in RAM. It drains out battery while running on low power mode, but still on.
On the other hand, hibernating your laptop completely shut it down and doesn’t use any power. In this mode your data is saved to your hard disk and not RAM. So, this option is much safer but slows down shut down and resumes.
By following these methods you can easily increase your laptop’s battery life by hours in some case and can also enhance computer performance .
