3 Tips to Increase Your Chromebook’s Battery Life

Given that Chromebooks employ a less resource-intensive operating system, the battery life is so much compared to Macbooks or even PCs with Windows.

However, there are other tweaks that can be made so as to ensure the battery last even longer.

Having said that, here are 4 tips to increase your Chromebook’s battery life:

#1: Reduce the number of Chrome tabs

The more number of Chrome tabs you have open, the more it reduces battery life. Keeping fewer tabs open will ensure that it lasts longer, of course. In order to do this, right-click your mouse on a browser tab and ‘Close other tabs’ or two finger-press the trackpad for the same thing.

#2: Turn off Wi-Fi

Even if it’s a Chromebook which depends heavily on the internet, turning off the Wi-Fi can help save battery life especially you’ve got very little to go on. Apart from this, you can also perform a number of tasks offline such as Gmail, Google Docs among a host of other apps that are available. Of course, you turn on Wi-Fi again, these services will sync with Google’s servers.

#3: Turn off Bluetooth

It makes no sense keeping this service on if you aren’t using it. For this, navigate to Settings>Advanced Settings in the Chrome options menu. After this, scroll down to the Bluetooth section and then uncheck the box. Of course, you can use the Search option to find the Bluetooth option and turn it off as well.
