STEP 2

Turn off battery draining programs

Many programs will run in the background and call on your processor’s full power for even simple tasks. While this may help their performance, it also drains your battery faster when you’re not plugged in. Economy mode will turn off power-sapping programs with the click of a button.

Click on the Economy Mode (battery icon) in the lower left corner. If you’ve never used it before, you'll be able to choose between moderate or maximum power saving.

 

TIP! Found a power outlet or back at home? Switch back to Standard Mode by clicking the play icon.

Even when you're not using them, active WiFi and Bluetooth components in your PC scan every passing network looking for a connection. This search is very battery intensive. Flight Mode can help you get more battery life whether you are on a plane or not by turning off those functionalities.
