We’ve featured some smartphone battery tips in past episodes, so we thought we’d share 5 tips for how to wring some extra life out of your laptop battery.

  1. Your screen can be the biggest energy drain on your battery, so dimming your display can make a real difference.
  2. Unplug any drives or other peripherals you have connected to your computer to make sure they're not draining your charge.
  3. Quit unused apps so they’re not sucking up power in the background.
  4. Turn your audio off so your computer doesn’t have to run its speakers.
  5. Turn off wi-fi and/or bluetooth if you can go without.

If you’ve got battery tips you’d like to share let us know on our social media accounts! -Jeff MacArthur
