Travel Tip of the Day: How to Increase Your Laptop Battery Power While Traveling

SwedenHow to Increase Your Laptop Battery Power While Traveling
Yesterday’s tip was about drained iPhone batteries and how to charge them faster. Today, I thought I’d share what I do when I get on a plane, train, bus, or boat with no electrical outlets and I have work to do—like the other day while flying Miami to LA: I close all the programs on my computer, restart the whole thing and dim the brightness on my screen, which always buys me extra time.

  1. Turn off any radios you might not be using like bluetooth or wifi. I see this all the time. Like when in a location with no cell signal like hiking, cruise or on a plane. Your device radios should be shut down to conserve power. When their is no signal your phone works harder to find a signal and drains the battery faster.

    During big events like a concert your device competes over the available signal. If you want your device usable after the event put it on airplane mode.
