    >>Here are the ten
    tips to save your
    laptop battery life.
    Tip 1. If you are
    working in a place
    where there is an
    available power
    source, plug in the
    laptop. Access to
    any power source
    will help save
    battery through
    charging and make
    the battery ’s life
    span last longer.
    Tip 2. Make sure
    that free air is
    flowing through
    the laptop.
    Battery tend to be
    overworked when
    the cooling system
    is blocked, so
    make sure that
    the cooling fan
    functions properly
    and is not blocked
    for air to flow
    freely.
    Tip 3. If you want
    the laptop battery
    to last longer than
    normal, reduce the
    CPU speed. You
    can do this by
    changing the
    battery’s power
    options to check
    balanced or power
    saver. These two
    options tend to
    minimize the
    processor speed.
    Tip 4. You should
    also defrag
    regularly to make
    the hard drive
    work faster. Once
    the hard drive
    works faster it will
    demand less use
    of battery. Plug
    the laptop on a
    power source
    while defragging.
    Tip 5. You can
    also lessen your
    use or plugging of
    USB and other
    external devices,
    including Wi-Fi and
    mouse because
    these devices can
    drain your battery.
    If you ’re not using
    them just remove
    them from the
    connection or shut
    them down to
    avoid too much
    usage of battery.
    Tip 6. You must
    also clean the
    battery contact of
    your laptop every
    month using a
    clean cloth
    moistened with
    rubbing alcohol.
    Doing this can
    efficiently
    transfer power
    from the battery
    to the laptop.
    Tip 7. Using the
    hibernation mode
    can also help save
    your battery while
    you do something
    else and make you
    resume your
    computer work in
    an instant.
    Tip 8. Never do
    multitasking. When
    using your laptop,
    do one task at a
    time. Multitasking
    can drain out
    battery faster and
    you’ll end up not
    being able to finish
    anything at all.
    Tip 9. Turning off
    scheduled tasks
    such as anti-virus
    updates online can
    also save your
    battery life span.
    Tip 10. And lastly,
    decrease laptop
    volume or speaker
    when not
    necessarily
    needed.
    The tips above are
    just few in saving
    your laptop
    battery life span.
    But if your battery
    is not really
    functioning as well
    as it did before, it ’s
    time to replace the
    battery and
    purchase a new
    one. You may also
    purchase a new
    laptop with a more
    efficient battery
    span which can
    solve your
    problem.
