My Gaming Laptop's Battery Life only lasts for an hour when playing demanding games outside of the charging cable.

Anyone know how I can increase the battery life? Any good accessories or external batteries that will boost up the battery life even more(compared to my stock battery)

Any apps that can help increase battery life , especially when heavy gaming?

Stop gaming on it. Yes, that's the only way.
Russian is my first language, so yes there may be a spelling error or two.

Nobody games on a battery. Demanding weren't meant to be played on a battery.

I suppose you could try setting the game on low settings and using VSYNC to limit the framerate.

Set everything to low, under clock. You can buy one of those PC work station batteries for power outages. But that's really impractical.

They're really made to go from power outlet to power outlet >_>

Use a car battery.

I'm serious. Use a car battery and you'll have a much larger charge.

Some laptops have power use settings that will limit hardware when unplugged (doing so will likely make the games look like ass, though).

But there really is no way. If the battery could be more efficient, don't you imagine it would have been that way by default? Plug it in to game on it.

Set it to Power Saver.

My battery usually runs 2-3 hours, Which is a huge step-down from my Netbook (7-8 hours..)
I'd play more MMOs if there was no chat.
