Making your Battery Last Longer

With great applications and cloud services enabling a generation of working more effectively on the move we thought you would like some useful pointers to making your laptop battery last longer.

1. Use the built in power options to conserve battery life (this menu is found at the bottom right of your desktop screen).

2. Only plug in and turn on USB devices, such as scanners, printers, multifunction devices, when you need them as these drain battery life by constantly drawing power.

3. Finally, don’t leave your laptop plugged in for long periods. This can help your laptop battery last longer throughout the 3-5 year life span of a business laptop. The best way to use the battery is to charge it up to 100% and then run it down before plugging it in again to charge.
