Charging & Battery

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your battery
  • If you not using the CD/DVD drive eject any disks that are in it.
  • Reduce the brightness of your display, the display is one of the most power hungry components of your computer.
  • Close any browser windows that your are not actively using, some site show plugin content that use a significant amount of resources.
  • If you stream the same thing often and can download it do so, streaming uses much more power than accessing a file locally. For example if you have a list of songs you listen to regularly, download them into iTunes instead of streaming from a music streaming service.
  • You should let your computer completely drain the battery as often as once a month. By regularly draining and re-charging the battery it will extend the life of the computer.
