Experts name ways to extend the life of your laptop during a power outage

Given the critical situation in the energy industry and long stabilization power outages, the question arises, how can you save battery charge on a laptop. We tell you how to extend the battery life during power outages. 


In order to keep your laptop charged as long as possible during power outages, you should do the following:

  • turn on the economical power mode in the laptop settings. In this way, you can save up to 20% of the battery life. This mode may slightly slow down the device, but this way the laptop will work longer;
  • close unnecessary programs that are not used during operation. It's Wi-Fi if it's not needed for work and Bluetooth;
  • experts advise to calibrate the battery. This will save the battery from overcharging and sudden shutdown. Calibration is recommended every two or three months. For the procedure, you need to charge your gadget to 100% and leave it charged for at least three hours to let the battery cool down. Next, you need to set the automatic shutdown of the laptop when there is 5 to 15% battery charge left. Next, you should wait until the battery is exhausted and the laptop will automatically roll away. Next, charge the laptop again and turn it on. Wait for the battery to fully charge.

And another important point, in order to extend the life of the battery as much as possible, experienced experts advise to turn off the charged laptop from the network and at the same time not to bring the device to full battery discharge.

Important! The laptop should not overheat or overcool. The optimal temperature for laptop operation is from 10 to 35 degrees. At the same time, it is worth monitoring the openings in the ventilation grills. They should not be clogged with dust or dirt and create obstacles to the normal cooling process. It is worth putting the laptop on a special stand, as using the laptop on your lap or on a cloth contributes to severe overheating.
