How to maximize battery usage
on Oct 31, 2018 at 8:10:30 pm

I'm catching a plane tonight for a long flight and would like to wok while on the plane. Besides quitting all apps that I am not using, are there any other tips/tricks that can help prolong my battery charge?

I know that many processes run in the background so I wonder if there's any way to limit or quit them altogether? I will also make sure my screen brightness is just bright enough so as to save battery.

Thanks for any tips!

Check under your seat--a lot of planes have AC outlets now.

I'd be surprised if a long flight didn't have AC outlets, so you should be okay, BUT, to answer your question regarding quitting processes:

You can use ACTIVITY MONITOR in the Utilities folder to look at what processes are running, which are using the most energy/CPU/Memory etc, and you can also force them to quit.
