How to increase laptop battery life 100% guaranteed steps.

Every laptop user these days have the same headache of limited backup time of batteries. As far as your system is new, you will have a good backup time but when it becomes a few months or years old you will definitely face problem of limited battery life and comes the question how to increase laptop battery life?

Here I’m giving you a solution to increase battery life of laptop upto a sufficient extent.

To save power, make your computer do less in general:
Don’t use a screensaver. They’re unnecessary on modern displays and will drain your battery to do nothing useful when your display could be off and saving power,
Run fewer programs in the background,
Reduce CPU usage,
Avoid maxing out your RAM.

There is an inbuilt command in your computer to increase battery life as well as the performance of the system but not all users are aware of it. Some laptops directly provide an interface with option termed as “POWER SAVING MODE” but if your laptop is old or don’t have this feature by default, you need not to worry because you can do the same task manually.

If you have a laptop with Windows 7 and above installed, you can run the ‘powercfg’ command using cmd.exe in administrator mode. It will display useful information about your laptop’s energy consumption and usage. If you can understand and maintain it correctly then you can extend your Battery life and performance by great amount.

100% guaranteed steps.

Step 1: Click on the Start Menu and type “CMD” in the Start Search bar.

Step 2: The search will start and it will then display an icon of “CMD”. simply right click on it and select Run as administrator.

Step 3: It will open command line, now simply run the command “powercfg -energy” without quotes. (Windows 7 users only.). Windows 8 and above can simply run the command “powercfg /energy” without quotes.

Step 4: Now Press “Enter”.

Once you successfully execute this command, Windows will run a complete scan of your system and it will find some ways to improve performance and power efficiency.

The results of this process will be saved to an HTML file with name “energy-report”, which is present in the “System32” folder of most systems depending on your drive letter. Mine is C:\, you can change to D, E or F… depending on where your Operating System is installed.
