How To Make Your Laptop Battery Long Last And Prevent Quick Damage


it is not advisable to always full charge your battery.
It is a basic thing that once you full charge your battery, even before making complete use of it, you recharge it again and this process goes on.
There will be a portion of your battery which is always charged and is never used, with time this area gets damaged and your battery can be used only to the balance remaining extent.
Therefore once charged, try to use it to the maximum and make sure there is only a very little portion left over, don't make the battery run out of charge and suddenly your PC gets turned off.
When your battery levels reaches 10% or 5% recharge it again. So only that much portion gets damaged if ever.

(a) Always use the power saver mode.
You can adjust the power settings from Control Panel –>Power Options. Select a power plan most appropriate for your system.
(b) Avoid Multitasking. If you run too many programs at a time, this consumes lot of power.

(f) Putting laptop in standby mode won't help much. Better to opt for hibernate mode or shutdown mode
(g) Disable Bluetooth after use.

This should be taken care of.
(h) Screen savers too consumes power. So try and avoid it, if you want to increase the life of your battery.
(i) Unplug all external devices after use. Printer, plotter,scanner, camera, MP3/MP4 Player and so on.
(j) At times your laptop will ask for automatic program updates.
Disable this feature or opt for ask again.
