Opera desktop browser brings a new feature that can extend your Laptop’s battery life by up to 50%.

Yes, that’s right, even though we’ve talked a lot about saving precious data on mobile, saving battery on mobile. But when it comes to Laptop, there is not much we can do to maximize the battery life.

How does it work?


To Quote from the announcement post

“Once the laptop’s power cable is unplugged, the battery icon will appear next to the search and address field in the Opera browser. Click the battery icon to activate the power saving mode and flip on the switch.

The browser will also suggest you enable power saving mode when your laptop reaches 20% remaining battery capacity.”

In their blog post, they mentioned they were able to extend the battery by 50%, they did it on a Lenovo X250, Core i7-5600U, 16GB RAM and Dell XPS 13, 16GB RAM running on Windows 10, 64-bit, high-performance power mode.

Though it cannot be said everyone would get to an extent up to 50% of their battery life, it is still not bad if I can get an extra hour or two working on my Macbook Air which currently gives a backup of around 7 hours.

Note: To use this feature, you need to install the Developer version of Opera browser. Link at the bottom of this post. 

When it comes to Laptop, there is not much we can do to maximize the battery life. Opera was always been up for some innovation, be it being one of the first introduced tabbed browsing to the world, to making super light browser for feature phones (Opera Mini).

With this new feature from Opera, I hope Chrome and Mozilla Firefox would also come up with something like this as I hardly see anyone switching to Opera browser just for this feature.
