I got myself a new laptop, which is pretty powerful, but the battery life is horrible on both Windows and Linux. I was wondering if there is a way to increase battery life on Linux.
I already tried to use
tlp, but it doesn't make much of a difference. Is there a way to disable cores and undervolt/clock the CPU? Will that save a significant amount of battery life?
It has both an integrated and discrete GPU and 4 core CPU. I was wondering if it was possible to disable 2 cores and the discrete GPU completely on Linux to improve the battery life, and perhaps underclock/undervolt it.
A step by step guide would be really appreciated, along with some explanation of what each command or program does.
