Intro: Maximize the Battery of Your Windows Device
In this tutorial, we will cover the basics of how to get the longest usage out of your windows device on a single charge. This tutorial is targeted at laptop users and will not be beneficial to those using a desktop.
Step 1: Disable Your Keyboard Backlight
While having a keyboard with a backlight is both aesthetically pleasing and useful in the dark, it is also a major battery drainer. While the way to turn off the keyboard backlight varies by computer, generally your computer will have a button or combination of buttons to press to turn the light off.
Step 2: Close Browser Tabs
Keeping many tabs open in a web browser is a common occurrence. Many people keep these tabs open to stay organized or to remind themselves to do something. While it seems minor, having many tabs open will drain your battery. A good solution to this is to bookmark your current tabs into a folder.
Step 3: Turn Off Bluetooth
Turning off bluetooth when possible will cause the computer to send out less signals and use less power, allowing the battery to last slightly longer.
Step 4: Change the Screen Timeout
Changing the screen timeout and lowering the brightness will use less power and save your battery.
Step 5: Conclusion
By following this guide, you will be able to get the most out of your laptop batters and get the most work done in a single charge.
