Can I get longer battery life?
My laptop used to have a longer battery life than it does now. Is there any way to extend the battery life while not plugged in?
There are a number of ways to extend battery life in a laptop. Perhaps the most common method is to type in "battery settings" in the Windows search bar to open up the "Power Options" interface, and then adjust your computers power profile to one of the presets depending on your needs. If you would like to further adjust how your computer manages its power you can go into "Edit Plan Settings" then click on "Advanced Power Settings" and fine tune these settings.
Note: If you are unsure what advanced options you wish you change it is highly recommended to just use the default settings.
In some cases an issue with the battery length may signify that the battery is either worn or even damaged. If changing the setting does not resolve the battery life issue. I recommend replacing the battery with a new one.
Battery saver mode, or your battery may just be old. Batteries get worse over time. They lose charge capacity, or at least Li-ion ones do. So depending on where you are with your battery, that will decide what you need to do. Keep in mind battery saver mode kills performance. Another thing to note is that this laptop isn't meant to be used on battery especially for gaming. Just think about what is being asked of the laptop boasting a GTX980M inside it and you want to "extend" battery life? Doesn't work like that unfortunately for all of us lol.
When you use it off Power, are you gaming? Or you just want more battery life for simple tasks? Don't expect more than an hour with gaming and running on battery. It's just not what this laptop was designed for. These are power hungry machines and if you want battery life, maybe buy a new laptop with a lower model GPU and put it on Balanced mode for power settings and just don't play any crazy games. OR stop trying to game for extended periods of time with a gaming laptop on battery. Mine is at my desk and it's always plugged in. Plus I have a triple monitor set up so I seldom take my laptop anywhere else in the house. I only move it if i'm going to a friends house or something.
