Windows 10 new feature to save on laptop battery life

According to TechRadar, a brand new Eco mode is currently being tested that will try to curtail power-hungry applications and therefore get the maximum life out of your battery. The new mode is accessed through the task manager currently. Some test users on preview build 21364 will see a menu option on their right mouse click that allows you to put a power-hungry app into a restricted mode.

When it comes to battery efficiency, Microsoft Windows when compared to Apple’s efficient MacOS operating system. And with Apple’s move to M1-powered machines, that gulf is only widening. While Microsoft is going to be stuck on x86 processors for a while, it seems there are some optimizations that the company is working on to eek more battery life out of Windows-based laptops.

This feature works in two ways, firstly by setting the priority of an application to ‘low’ and applying EcoQoS. As the name suggests, this is a ‘Quality of Service’ level which can manage applications that don’t need low latency or high performance. That means it won’t work if you’re editing a video, or playing a game, but could be a great option for more general Windows users.
