Increase the battery life of My Samsung Notebook.

Battery life is primarily affected by how the notebook is used.


By simply changing some settings for your day-to-day use can increase your battery life. Below are some tips on how you will be able to achieve this.


  • Reduce the number of programs running in the background, such as music players when not in use and email programs. All of these programs add to the CPU load and reduce battery life.
  • Reduce the number of USB devices plugged into your notebook. Such as USB sticks, portable hard drives, mobile phones, etc.
  • Dim the brightness of your screen. You can access these settings through the Control Panel. (See image below)

  • Disable Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
  • Do not leave your notebook on charge. Leaving your notebook on charge continually and for long periods of time will damage the battery and greatly decrease the life of the battery.
  • Change the power settings. You can also find these settings in Control Panel. (See image below)

  • Don’t leave discs in the CD or DVD drive when not in use. Even though you may not be using the disc, it can still consume extra power as the notebook will spin the disc even when you aren’t actively using it.
  • Clean the air vents. Having build up in the air vents will make the computer run at higher temperatures which makes the internal fan work harder and consume more power to cool your notebook.
  • Hibernate your notebook instead of leaving it on stand by.
