Rules to make your laptop battery long going
Normally laptops when initially bought runs for a longer time without power connection, however during time and usage of the laptop the battery time keeps on reducing, reducing the laptop time without power connection.
There are several ways in which we can increase the laptop usage on battery connection
Rule1: Disable application
While using a laptop on battery mode one can disable the WIFI, Bluetooth, running songs etc. this will significantly increase the battery time and you can run the laptop for longer period of time.
Using windows power saver mode, as shown in the image.
Rule3: Running applications
Many a times there are background applications running even without our knowledge. We can disable this in windows 10, from getting started automatically when the computer starts.
To do this we can go to the windows task manager >> startup.
From here you can decide which all the programs you want to be started at the time when the computer is starting.
Rule4: Clean battery
Clean your battery's metal contacts every couple of months with a cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol. This keeps the transfer of power from your battery more efficient.
Rule5: Lower brightness:
All laptops come with the option to lower brightness. Some even come with ways to modify CPU and cooling performance.
Closing the Firefox, IE and other browser multiple tabs
Opening multiple tabs of the browser also increases the usage of the computer/laptop. When not using this usage it can be better closed, for better utilization of the computer.
Rule7: external devices
Avoid usage of external devices when the laptop/desktop is running from battery. Try not using USB devices, speakers, mobile, printers, scanners or any other external devices. Either remove or shit down this devices.
If you are charging other devices like mobile, from your laptops, this will highly drain your laptop battery. If you charge other devices with your laptop you will quickly wipe out the charge on your laptop battery.
Rule10: Using more RAM
This will allow you to process more with the memory your laptop has, rather than relying on virtual memory. Virtual memory results in hard drive use, and is much less power efficient.
Keep the laptop temperature down this in turn will also increase the battery usage of the laptop without power.
Rule 12: Multitask
Do one thing at a time when you're on battery, rather than working on a spreadsheet, letting your email client run in the background, and listening to music at the same time, which puts unnecessary overhead on your computer's CPU

If you plan to do this, you may want to turn it back on as the battery runs low. While it saves battery life in the beginning, you will want to make sure your work is saved when your battery dies.
