#4) Avoid Discharge / Overcharge


The Battery performance is supposed to decrease with wear-and-tear. But, that doesn’t mean that you should increase the rate of wear-and-tear by fully discharging the laptop battery.

The laptop battery can damage if you are fully discharging it and then fully recharging it. Doing that will decrease the laptop battery performance drastically.

Also, you should not overcharge the battery. Overcharging the battery may also damage the battery of the laptop. Keeping the laptop plugged in overnight even after laptop battery is fully charged is not recommended at all. In worse case scenario, the battery may explode due to overcharge.

#5) End Unnecessary Background Tasks

Most of the time, the software you closed are still running in the background, eating your battery power. The most common example is the Google’s Chrome browser, which keeps running in the background even after you close it. Also, the torrent application is alive in the background every time you start the computer.

#6) Hibernate, Instead of Sleep Mode


There are two interesting modes in the laptops. First one if the Hibernation and second is the sleep mode. When you close the laptop lid, then your laptop goes into the Sleep mode. In sleep mode, the laptop saves your current session into the RAM and then keeps the RAM alive. When you open the laptop that is in sleep mode, you’ll be able to boot in the session you were earlier working on quickly.

As the laptop is powering RAM to wake up anytime, it’ll continue to eat power from your notebook. Not a significant amount, but you’ll still lose power and decrease the laptop battery performance over time.

As the laptop is completely switched OFF in the Hibernation, it doesn’t eat power at all, saving your laptop battery power.

7) Replace Old Battery
