Experts tell you how to charge your laptop to make your battery last longer

Improve every charging session of your laptop and extend the life of your battery.

Here collected the best ways to extend the life of your laptop battery.

So, how to properly charge your laptop to make the battery last longer?

For start change the power profile to energy saving. Windows laptops are equipped with the ability to change the power profile in the “Power and sleep options” menu. Choose battery saver mode to optimize your laptop and focus on efficiency, not performance.

Reduce the brightness of your laptop screen. A bright screen with a high resolution is the main factor that reduces the battery life of a laptop. Although you can't do anything with its permission after purchase, you can lower the brightness so that it uses as little power as possible.

Turn off the laptop keyboard backlight. The keyboard backlight is really useful for typing in the dark, but it also requires power, which means it's another source of battery drain. If battery life is important, try to do without the backlight and turn it off.

Turn off any external devices you don't need. All external devices draw power from your laptop, whether they're powered solely by it or use it to charge their own internal battery.

Keep calm. Batteries stay more efficient and last longer if stored at room temperature or even slightly lower, so try not to let the laptop heat up. This means you should not use it in very hot rooms or in direct sunlight.

Shutdown or sleep mode  when not in use. When you are not using your laptop, turn it off or put it into Hibernate mode after a short period of inactivity. Even when it's idle, it drains the battery – just because the screen is off doesn't mean it's not draining slowly.
