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?

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.
