How to fix a laptop battery that dies fast?
Short battery life has always been a problem for tech gadget consumers. They often tend to provide limited longevity for users, especially those who surf the Internet for extended periods. However, Google is about to answer devices’ short battery life issues.
Reportedly, Google is already working on providing a solution for short life batteries.
The tech giant reported the testing of a new feature that the company’s programmers are working on. Dubbed ‘Quick Intensive Throttling’, its benefit will be great for owners of mobile devices. The batteries of gadgets such as cellphones, tablets, and laptops will soon be able to last for longer periods. With the highlighted development, the newly created feature will provide a 10 percent reduction in tech devices’ CPU time.
Battery last 1.25 hours longer
According to Google’s tech team, once a device is inactive for more than 5 minutes; it enters conservation mode. Thus, with the Intensive Wake Up Throttling launched, the 5 minutes timeout offers minimal regression risk.
