Practical Method to Extend Notebook Battery Life

Regularly defragment:

Defragment the hard disk allows faster the speed of your hard work, the regular defragmentation make hard drive to keep efficient, of course, is to use an external power supply when the best sort. Corresponding disk speed short time, it will certainly reduce the power consumption to extend Apple A1189 battery usage time.

Reduce screen brightness:

Most computer screen brightness can be adjusted, and some can even reduce the CPU operating frequency. Battery, reduce these parameters can effectively extend battery usage time.

Close background programs:

There are some programs running in the background, although not directly see these programs running, but are consuming CPU processing power, of course, consume battery power. The best way is to turn off all unnecessary background programs, in order to prolong battery life.

Reduce peripherals:

USB devices (including your mouse), Wi-Fi wireless connection is capable of consuming battery energy when the equipment is not in use, it is best to pull down or masked. Some equipment, for example, when connected to the iPod with the computer will start charging, use battery-powered laptop, they should be careful not to do it.

Add more memory:

More memory means that notebooks do not place undue reliance on virtual memory. Virtual memory is built above the hard disk, it is clear access memory power consumption is lower, so read memory not touch the plate, be able to reduce power consumption. However, also able to increase the memory problems caused by energy consumption, and thus the computer often call the virtual memory of a friend, the most consider to add memory.

With a little less optical drive:

Although larger hard drive power consumption, but in fact drive energy consumption even more serious. Even when not in use, the optical drive is still the same rotation, and energy consumption. If you can find the right virtual CD files through a virtual CD-ROM drive to read, apparently the power consumption is much less.

Keep feet clean touch:

Proposed here, every few months to clean up the battery's metal contacts feet cloth moistened alcohol wipe. The battery inside that could ensure that more effectively transmitted to the various components to consume.

Take good care of the battery:

Not let you take good care of the battery shelf, but regular exercise it. Do not let the "do nothing" to a fully charged battery to be Shanghao for a long time. Once charged, you should at least every two or three weeks to fully use. Of course, do not let your lithium Apple A1175 battery completely consumed electricity, it is a method to deal with the old battery memory effect.
