Who desperately wants to run a power outlet to save your laptop's battery? That's no fun, especially if you're working in a crowded convention center, knocking on an airport gate or even lounging on a tropical beach. Fortunately, modern laptops are much more efficient than their predecessors. Today, even low-cost desktop replacement laptops and some single-charging gaming giants can take more than eight hours. Some Ultraportables can last 14 hours or more.
However, the inconvenient fact is that the battery in your PC or Mac laptop does not last as long as the manufacturer assumes, unless you are aware of some important factors: your power settings, how many apps you run, even the Temperature of the room in which you work. The good news is that none of this requires a lot of work once you know which settings you need to adjust. Take a look at the best ways to get the most out of your laptop's battery.
