It has always been possible to change the power plan settings in recent versions of the Windows operating system to conserve and extend battery life. There are dozens of software that claim to improve battery life. This good news is that you no longer need to use third-party battery saver software, as Windows 10 comes with a built-in battery saver feature.
Battery Saver is one of hundreds of new features introduced with Windows 10. As the title of the feature says, the feature is designed to extend the battery life of devices running the Windows 10 operating system.
By default, the feature is activated automatically when the battery level drops below 20%. And when battery saver is on, you can see a little green icon on the battery icon located in the system tray to indicate that the battery saver feature is on.
According to Microsoft, Battery Saver limits background tasks to improve battery life. Also, the Windows Store, Calendar, and People apps are not syncing. Windows 10 reduces the brightness of the computer screen by 30% to save battery (you can disable this option in the battery settings). When Battery Saver is on, Windows 10 doesn’t download non-critical Windows updates. Finally, Windows 10 also blocks most of the telemetry.
As mentioned above, with the default settings, Battery Saver is only enabled when the battery level drops below 20%. You may want to change this default to 40 or 50% to improve battery life in Windows 10.
It is important to note that battery saver is disabled during charging even if the battery level is below the specified percentage. It goes without saying that the battery saver feature is not available on computers without batteries.
Quickly enable battery saver in Windows 10
Step 1: Click the battery icon in the taskbar area of the taskbar to display the battery drop-down menu.
Step 2: Move the slider to Better battery life position (far left) to activate the battery saver function.

Otherwise, select the option to enable Battery saver when the battery level drops below 20%. To activate Battery Saver immediately (regardless of battery level), turn it on Battery saving status until next charge option.
