Strategies to save your laptop battery
Here is a piece of advice for students and teachers who complain about laptop battery life.
- Prime new batteries. Let laptop batteries charge fully before use. Then, let it drain completely before recharging. Run new batteries through this cycle a couple of times. Doing so will condition them to run to full capacity.
- Pull the plug. Don’t leave laptops plugged in for long periods of time. Doing so leaves batteries in a constant state of charging — and that will ultimately reduce battery life.
- Use hibernate or standby mode. Both options save power when students step away from the computer.
- Mute the sound. Turn the speaker volume all the way down — or mute it — when sound isn’t needed for the task at hand.
