  • Kernel Compile options, for better battery life

    Try PowerPlan. It's the best solution I've tried so far. Note, Nvidia (and any dedicated graphics card) is a battery hog, so not many things can help with your battery. My laptop has a smaller battery than yours (56 watt hours) and a 4k screen, and I'm getting about 5 hours of sot, but I never install Nvidia drivers, though. Once I install it, I'm down to about 2 hours max.

    Take a look at Powerplan. It literally made me love my laptop all over again. I've found it to be the best battery saving software on Linux, and I've tried pretty much everything. Make sure to read through some of the comments on the opened "issues", there is some good info there.

    I've tried pretty much everything, and found nothing better than powerplan. Absolutely the best one yet. Doesn't have a GUI yet, but it is very simple to install and configure. Default is more than enough. So, basically git clone[repo] or just download the zip file and extract it. Open a terminal there and run these three commands
  • How do I reduce power consumption in linux to match windows?

    I might be a little late but here's what I've been using to get lower power usage. It's very similar to what window's powerplan does, and it gives you plenty options plus some extra features in regards to CPU power configuration. I guess your mileage may vary depending con system components/drivers but I get consistently lower power usage than on Windows 10 on my laptop, albeit with an Intel CPU. I hope this doesn't feel as shameless promotion or something as I wrote the program, I just feel confident in recommending it as an option.

    Same here. I think that's because of the battery saving measures that manjaro has which enable "turbo boost" (or whatever the equivalent is on your laptop) which cranks the CPU to the highest. You can control that via TLP(it's already installed on manjaro by default) by either going to tlp.config, download the tlpGUI, or use cpu-autofreq. I have personally been using PowerPlan for a while now, and it's been awesome. It has a config file in /etc called powerplan.config that lets you mess with the frequencies and turbo boost.

    Take a look at powerplan https://github.com/Haptein/powerplan . I've been using it for over a week now, it's been great. I have the same CPU as yours, except mine is an i7. This small program has a lot of controls over frequencies, voltage and many other things. The only "downside" is that it doesn't have a GUI yet, but it is very easy to configure. Read through the comments under the open issues that I have opened there, they have some pretty good info that can help you set it up the right way. I have been very, very happy with it. I have it set up where turboboost is on only when the laptop is plugged into power. Battery life has been amazing, too. You can even create profiles where certain apps can trigger turboboost on battery if you experience any lag on those apps, they are called "trigger apps".
  • Increase battery life in linux

    This is a one man project. It's been out for a couple of day. We are only two people testing it. The battery life is now miles better than what I had on other measures (including TLP and power profiles daemon).
