Battery Optimizer is a simple-to-use software utility that promises to prolong your notebook’s battery life. It does not resort to complicated methods to do so, but simply scans the computer to get an assessment regarding enabled or disabled features.
Rapid installation and simple GUI
The setup operation is a fast and easy job that doesn’t require special attention. Battery Optimizer is wrapped in a clean and intuitive interface, based on a regular window with multiple tabs.
Run a diagnostic scan and optimize the battery life
You can get started by performing a scan job on the machine in order to find out whether the following features are activated or deactivated: wireless network connection, Bluetooth, infra-red, screen brightness adjustment, and external peripherals.
Plus, the app can tell whether the laptop is plugged into a power source or not (it shouldn’t be). This diagnostic tool can be run in express or comprehensive scanning mode. Based on the results, Battery Optimizer makes its own recommendations for optimizing the battery.
Monitor battery usage and apply power profiles
Furthermore, Battery Optimizer provides you with a handy function for monitoring battery usage and charge. As far as power profiles are concerned, you can restore all settings to default, or to turn all features on or off.
When it comes to program preferences, you can enable alerts when the battery life drops below a certain level or when its usage increases, minimize Battery Optimizer to the system tray and ask it to run at system startup, change the UI language, automatically change profiles, and so on.
