Gaming Laptops With Best Battery Life

Which gaming laptops have the best battery life? This list shows the battery life results for all of the different laptops that I’ve ever reviewed on the Jarrod’sTech YouTube channel. But first, I need to explain how the battery tests are performed.

How I Test Laptop Battery Life

  • The laptop battery always starts with a full 100% charge.
  • All testing is done with the screen set to 50% brightness, as I do not normalize this to any specific value in nits this is a potential cause of variance depending on the output of the panel.
  • By default, Windows will hibernate the laptop at 5% battery charge left. I attempt to lower this to 1%. If this is not possible I pause the timer once it shuts off, turn the machine back on and continue timing until it no longer powers back on.
  • The test is started by removing the power cable and starting a stopwatch simultaneously, the machine is monitored until the battery runs out.
  • Any keyboard or other lighting effects are turned off.

Gaming

  • I test by running The Witcher 3 at 1080p medium settings. The test is reproducible as I leave it sitting in the same section of the game.
  • By default Nvidia battery boost caps game frame rate to 30 FPS, I use this default. This will only work if you are logged into Nvidia GeForce experience
  • If a result in the table below is listed as 0, means the laptop does not have discrete graphics and the test was not attempted, or that the frame rate was not good enough for a playable experience.
  • Gaming on battery isn’t recommended if it can be avoided, as discussed here.

YouTube Playback

  • I run the same 6 hour 720p video on loop in cinema mode using Google Chrome.
  • I test with the lowest power profile available through what ever software the vendor offers.

These results are useful for comparing different laptops against each other. Actual battery life will of course vary based on what you’re doing, so expect different results based on that.
