Battery life is among the key factors that help us decide whether or not to buy a laptop. However, it may catch you off guard that the most well-known brands do not have the best battery life.

Why is battery life important? In some cases, this factor is even a higher priority than the number of ports, processing power, and screen size. And as we mentioned above, holding the top position of this chart is not big brands like Apple but rather unexpected ones, in this article, let’s go through the 35 best battery-life laptops and find out which brand has the strongest candidate.

But before that, here are some rules to follow when you choose a laptop if you want it to last all day:

  • A screen with higher resolution and more brightness will consume more power.
  • For Intel Core chips, the Y series has lower power consumption than the U series which is less power-consuming than the H series. And newer CPUs usually feature more battery optimizations compared with older ones.
  • Discrete graphics use more power than integrated.
  • Keyboard backlights may have little impact on your battery.
  • LPDDR memory consumes less battery than standard DDR.
  • Gaming is the most common cause of battery drain on a laptop.
  • A few easy ways to extend your battery life include making the laptop sleep or turning off the screen in case of small intervals as well as lowering the screen brightness.

The following list shows the laptops that can last the longest, which have been proven through lab tests. Enjoy!
