Hello my name is***** will be happy to answer your question. First if you want to you can get a larger battery for your machine and you can also try and keep your screen to a lower brightness so you are not using a lot of power to run the machine. What is the model number of this machine?

toshiba satellite C50A

Here is a link for a twelve cell battery, http://www.ebay.com/itm/12CELL-8800mAh-Battery-Pack-Model-No-PA5109U-1BRS-Toshiba-LAPTOP-C50-A-C50D-A-/381117412765?hash=item58bc5e359d:g:Rq8AAOSw2s1Ur6nJ

Just upgrade the battery for a longer life keep in mind it will take longer for it to charge but it would last longer and just remember keep the monitor brightness down and you will have a lot longer of a battery life.
