Are you always running out of battery life? It’s time to stop worrying. With a built-in Automatic Battery Saver in Windows 11, you can take back control of your laptop’s battery life. Here’s how it works:
When your laptop battery reaches 20% capacity, the Automatic Battery Saver kicks in automatically and restricts background activity to conserve power for when you need it most. And when your laptop is plugged in and charging, the Automatic Battery Saver continues this cycle by turning off all power-hungry activities. So, whether you’re using your laptop on the go or at home — your battery is getting a break with the new Automatic Battery Saver in Windows 11.
How to Configure Automatic Battery Saver
The Automatic Battery Saver feature is enabled by default in Windows 11. To configure the Automatic Battery Saver:
1.Go to Settings > System > Battery
2. Select “Battery saver settings.”
Here you can:
- Change the battery level at which it turns on
- Set a custom time frame during which it will turn on
- Set a custom percentage of battery life after which it will turn off
Here are some tips to save more power and extend the life of your battery with an automatic battery saver:
1) Put your computer to sleep when it’s not being used.
2) Make sure that Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are turned off if they’re not in use.
3) If possible, connect your laptop to an outlet when you know you won’t be using it for a while.
4) Turn down the screen brightness to its lowest level when you don’t need it at 100%.
5) Keep your laptop plugged in when you’re near an outlet. The Automatic Battery Saver will kick in automatically.
6) Don’t let your battery run too low too often—battery damage can occur if the voltage falls too low.
