This Is Why Your Laptop Battery Dies Fast

Quick, what is the biggest drain on your laptop's battery? If you answered "the display," you are right -- for the most part. The single biggest occupier of battery resources, day in and day out, is your laptop's display. More specifically, it's the that energy goes into powering the backlight that illuminates the pixels on your laptop's display. The obvious move to extend battery life is then to lower your display's brightness. On either a Windows 10 laptop or an Apple MacBook, you can usually do this on the keyboard, but there are a couple other settings to change that will help automate the process. Open System Preferences and click Display. On the Display tab, you will see a slider for Brightness. Lower it to a point between super bright and depressingly dull. Not only will a display set at a lower brightness aid your battery life, but it will also be easier on your eyes unless you are sitting in direct sunlight and need brightness at its max in order to see text and images. Below the slider is a check box for Automatically adjust brightness, which may or may not help extend the life of your battery. If you use your laptop primarily in a brightly lit office or sunny breakfast nook, then keep this setting off so OS X is not bumping up screen brightness to compensate for your bright environment. You are better off lowering the display brightness manually. Of course, the opposite is also true. If you often work into the wee hours at night in a darkened room or keep your office light low, check the box and let OS X lower the brightness in such settings. There is another display-related setting on the Energy Saver area of System Preferences. Check the box for Slightly dim the display while on battery power. Keeping your display running while your laptop sits unattended is a needless waste of battery resources. On the Energy Saver page, you can set times for Computer Sleep and Display Sleep, both of which spring into action if your MacBook sits idle for a period of time. Set as short a time as you are comfortable with for the Battery tab; it's less important for the Power Adapter tab. First off, if you are concerned about your Windows 10 laptop's battery life, head to Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Options and make sure you choose a Balanced or Power Saver plan. Use the High performance plan only when you need a boost for gaming or high-end graphics apps. With Windows 10, there are additional power and display settings from the Settings button on the Windows 10 start screen. Tap the Home button, tap the Settings button on the left edge, and then tap System. From the left menu, tap Display and you will find a slider for Adjust brightness level. Next, tap Battery Saver from the left menu. Tap the toggle switch to turn on Battery saver. If the toggle switch is grayed out, unplug your laptop so it's running on battery power and the toggle switch will become active. Battery saver is a new feature with Windows 10 that limits background activity and push notifications to extend battery life. By default, Battery saver turns on when your battery falls below 20 percent. Tap Battery saver settings to adjust this percentage. Also on the Battery saver settings page, you can check a box for Lower screen brightness while in battery saver to further extend battery life. Lastly, tap Power & sleep from the left menu and select times for Windows 10 to turn the screen off and put your PC in sleep mode to avoid needlessly draining your battery while your laptop sits idle. For more, read about Window 10's built-in battery-saving mode. Similar to powering the display backlight, powering keyboard backlights can also be a big drain on your battery. First, make sure you turn off your keyboard backlights when you do not need them. Secondly, both OS X and Windows 10 have settings that will kill keyboard backlights after the laptop sits idle for a time of your choosing. This setting varies by manufacturer with Windows 10, but on OS X, you will find it in System Preferences > Keyboard. While the display is the primary culprit for draining your laptop's battery, I still want to leave you with two pieces of tried-and-true battery life advice. 1. Turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when they are not needed. Both wireless adapters use battery power to scan for networks and devices and keep you connected. 2. Unplug any peripherals when they are not in use. An unpowered peripheral draws power from your laptop, which means it will drain the battery when the laptop is not plugged in.

1. i ask again, how much electricity is required to split a liter of water into H2 and O2 gases.?

Your idea about electrons is wrong. What the electrolysis is doing is moving the electrons from the anode and giving them to the cathode. There is no net gain in electrons so you do not need to take any extra electrons. The electrons are given a voltage and this makes them move thus making a current. This requires energy. It depends on the efficiency of your electrolysis method and most of them are not efficient at all. Overall your efficiency will be less than 50%. So half of the energy you started off with is lost in heat. So you start with $2 of battery power and you get $1 of hydrogen power. Its a long time since I did chemistry so I may be a bit wrong! This is how many electrons needed for a litre of water: There are 18g per mole. A litre is about 1kg. So there are 55.55 moles in a litre. Each molecule takes 2 electrons. So you would need 111 moles of electrons. Times that by Avogadro's constant 6.02210^23 and you get 6.6810^25 electrons. Quite a lot! A more useful measure is the power required for this task. Now the enthalpy of water is -273.13kJ per mole. So I make that -111*273.13 for the litre or near enough -2.67MJ. But since the efficiency is going to be about half the energy required will be 5.3MJ. So the answer to the question "how much electricity" converted into more usual units is about 1.4kWH. Oh, and pure H2O hardly conducts at all. I expect that your H2O was not as pure as you thought.

2. Will my car battery power my CPAP machine all night on a camping trip? (Power Consumption?)?

First, will there be another car there with a jumper cable to start your car if you drain the battery? Second, will you run the engine or make trips between uses for the CPAP machine (and how far is the nearest gas station?) A 12 volt car battery rated for 40Ah (amp-hours) will last 40 hours at 1 amp or 1 hour at 40 amps (limited by fuses?). A fully charged battery should last about 40/3 = 13.3 hours in theory for a 3 amp 12VDC load. But leave yourself some margin, especially if the CPAP machine is sensitive to voltage droop.

3. USB mouse cuts out on battery power

It seems like your computer is set to disable USB when iddle as a power saving measure.This is usually suggested by powertop, but it's a very bad idea if you are using a USB mouse. This command fixes it temporally:You need to substitute yourmouse for your mouse bus and device number, you can usually find it with:Unluckily this will work only until whatever the program that have changed the setting kicks on again: either at boot time, when you disconnect your computer from electricity, or whatever. You need to discover what package is changing it to resolve the issue

What Are Some Ways to Keep My Hair Really Healthy?
Use professional shampoo & conditioner. I know it may seem like a rip-off, however all the shampoos like Pantene, Garnier, etc. have a high alcohol content....since the normal pH of your hair is 4.5-5.5, things containing high amounts of alcohol throw your hair all out of whack and cause breakage, split-ends, fly-aways, etc. The reason these shampoos make your hair feel soft is because they contain high amounts of humectants, which are just a cover for how damaging they really are! Another tip is ALWAYS use a thermal protector while applying heat. Heat appliances cause tons of damage to your hair. Usually this is a cream/clear gel you apply before blow drying. Never use a flat iron on hair that is not completely dry!1. Split End Help. ( 10 Points) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?For sure you should get a trim and maybe even cut your hair as short as you are comfortable doing it. You should for no reason straighten or dye your hair. Look for some Garnier Fructis or Pantene shampoos and conditioner for curly hair so that it extra moisturizes it and helps the split ends repair themselves. I say from experience that ppl with curly hair have really bad split ends, which is why we have special stuff in our hair products. The split ends wont magically go away in like a month or a few weeks, but you will see improvement after a while. Oh, and for sure DO NOT PICK THEM OFF!! It will just make it worse. Every two months until your hair is healthy get a trim. just maybe half an inch or an inch will be just fine. Eventually your hair will go back to normal. Good luck with that!.2. Whats the best shampoo conditioner for cheap?clever or V05 are solid inexpensive ($a million) shampoos, yet whilst it is composed of conditioner i could bypass Tresemme ($6) it does an somewhat solid interest. i take advantage of salon shampoo because of the fact i am form of a hair snob, yet I nonetheless use the cheap conditioner. Pantene is undesirable on your hair (too plenty protein and reasons alot of greater build up on the hair) so i does not bypass there. desire this permits! My hair is oily, superb, and colour-taken care of if that helps you any!3. How can I get my curly hair to be nice like Taylor Swift?Haha i have the same hair long and curly..but not pretty curly! im completely obsessed with taylor and her hair so i did so playing with it and what you really NEED to get is the conair hot sticks!! they are these little flexible curlers and they are not very expensive and i would look like a frizz ball without them!! you can like get them at walmart. anyways what i do when iwear my hair curly is like i get up and get in the shower and wash it and condition it and this may sound weird but dont use a whole lot of conditioner just enough to get it done cause it will help your hair hold the curl the just get out and towel dry your hair till it is just damp and then put a curling mouse in it and frizz serum then finish blow drying it straight! and you know have the curlers on like when your gettin in the shower and then just make sure the little light is on meaning that they are hot enough and then seperate your hair into pretty small peices (if you have really thick hair then you might need to buy two sets cause they only have 14 in them and you use small sections) and then start from the botom of your hair and role it through your hair and pin it together youll see the instructions on how to pin them together and make sure you wrap it all the way to the top of your head and leave them for like 15 or 20 minutes while your finishin gettin ready and then use like a light hairspray about 5 minutes before you take them out then your done. i know this thing was really long but its not that hard lol!!!! hope i helped good luck!!!!!!!!
