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.
