Gaming Laptops With Best Battery Life

LIST OF LAPTOP BATTERY LIFE

In terms of battery life, which gaming laptops are the best? The results of the battery life tests for all of the laptops are shown below. But first, let me explain how the battery tests are carried out.

How I Test Laptop Battery Life

  • The laptop battery always has a 100% charge.
  • Because I don’t standardize the screen brightness to a precise nit value, there may be some variation in the results based on the panel’s output.
  • When the laptop’s battery is at 5%, Windows will automatically shut down. I’m trying to get it down to 1%. However, if this is impossible, I pause the timer once it has shut down, turn the machine back on, and continue timing as long as the machine continues to power up.
  • In order to begin the battery test, disconnect the machine’s power cord and start a stopwatch simultaneously.
  • The keyboard and any other illumination effects have been disabled.

Gaming

  • I run Far Cry 5 on 1080p medium settings. It’s easy to repeat the test because I leave it in the same place in the game.
  • Nvidia’s battery boost defaults to 30 FPS, and I like to stick with this setting. To use this, you must be signed into your Nvidia GeForce experience account.
  • It is possible that the laptop did not have discrete graphics, in which case the test was not run, or that it failed due to a low frame rate that made the game unplayable.

YouTube Playback

  • I use Google Chrome to play a six-hour 720p video in cinema mode on a loop for as long till the battery die.
  • I use whatever software the seller provides to test at the lowest possible power level.
  • Comparing laptops based on these findings is an excellent exercise. Depending on what you’re doing, you can expect varied battery life outcomes.
