SUMMARY:
– You can turn on the Energy Saver (for Mac) or Power Saver (for Windows) mode in your settings.
– Your laptop screen, or rather its backlight, is one of the hungriest energy eaters in the whole system.
– When your laptop is in sleep mode, it’s still actively using its memory and draining the battery.
– When you free up your hard drive, you’re making the whole system more productive.
– When it’s too hot or too cold, your laptop can’t work as efficiently, so it wastes energy.
– Any laptop can handle a certain number of charge cycles in its lifetime, typically around 500.
– USB sticks, an external hard drive, webcam, wireless mouse, external keyboard, and other peripherals are all powered by your motherboard. Even when you aren’t using them, they take away precious energy.
– Check what apps run in the background and consume the most power, even when you aren’t using them.
– Change your settings to leave all the updates for when you’re plugged in.
– Your email and your social networking accounts love your attention, and they use notifications to grab it.
– Whenever you’re plugged into a power outlet, update your system if there’s a chance.
– A solid-state drive runs on flash memory that takes less battery to function than a usual hard drive.
– You can disable graphics accelerators in energy-saving settings.
– Even a small mismatch in wattage can overload and damage both the laptop and the battery.
– An external battery pack will be your guarantee you won’t lose any important data or get stuck without a laptop when you need it.
