If you are using windows 10, you have already noticed there is an option called “battery saver” on the battery indicator icon. You can use this feature when you using your laptop on battery and have not connected the power cable.

This step is effective to extend Battery Life. It actually limits your processor’s speed. So it reduces the voltage consumption and uses less battery. If you have 2.00 GHz, it changes to 0.78 GHz.

To use this feature, you have to change the power plan. To get started right click on the battery indicator icon and go to Power Options. Now select power saver option.

By selecting this you will notice some performance change. We will not recommend you to change this plan if you are playing any games or using high-end software. It’s good during watching movies.
