How to conserve Dell latitude e5410 laptop battery power

Dell Latitude E5410 is a good business laptop with decent performance and above-average battery life. It managed to keep running for an hour and 40 minutes in our Battery Eater test. That said, this test maxes out the processor to simulate worst-case-scenario battery life, so under normal conditions the Dell Latitude E5410 battery should last significantly longer.

To maximize your Dell latitude laptop battery run time, today BattAussie notebook battery experts share following 5 ways to conserve your Dell latitude e5410 laptop battery power:

1. Improve efficiency. Certain settings can bleed Dell latitude laptop batteries dry. To optimize power settings and keep operations running smoothly:

• Dim your screen

• Disable Flash and your screensaver if you don’t need them

• Close unused programs instead of running them in the background

• Disable Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi, which use power in their constant search for connections

2. Consider a power management program. Programs like Battery Optimizer use diagnostic tools to calculate how much power you’ll save by turning off unnecessary features. They automate your settings for you and even give you real-time graphics showing how much power you have left and how many more battery recharges are in your future.

3. Add more RAM. Bumping up your Dell latitude e5410 laptop’s memory is an inexpensive fix that helps your hard drive and saves battery power. The reason? When your machine runs out of RAM, it uses virtual memory instead of the hard drive to run applications — which takes a toll on Dell latitude e5520 battery life.

4. Keep laptop cool. Heat is your battery’s natural enemy, yet running games and videos or processing huge files can really raise your machine’s temperature. Always use your laptop on a hard surface, where it gets better ventilation than when sinking into a sofa or your lap. You can decrease the heat with a fan or cooling kit, or use a bakery cooling rack for a nifty hack. If your model has visible vents, keep them dust free with an occasional blast from a can of compressed air.

5. Don’t double dip. Even the most basic of your laptop’s processes tax the battery, so adding your smartphone or tablet to the mix saps the battery power even faster. Unless it’s absolutely necessary, don’t charge other devices or use external hard drives and USB plug-ins during battery-only time, and wait to upload those photos or listen to music.

 

Follow above advices for conserving laptop battery life and you’ll never find yourself stuck by that airport restroom electrical outlet or circling the coffee shop for an open jack again.
