Dell Inspiron 15 7577 Battery Life

I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15 7577 that is having issues with its battery. While only browsing the internet with most background applications turned off, my laptop is only able to survive an hour and a half while not plugged in. Is there a better way to optimize my battery or is this a hardware issue?

Re: Dell Inspiron 15 7577 Battery Life

 

  I go in and make a custom power plan from Power Options in Control Panel.

  Things like reducing brightness help just a little, and the backlighting on the keyboards should turn off on its own when on battery.  If not then there's something else going on.

  Wireless can be a battery hog, if you can connect via cable that can help, but in general I think my battery goes at least an hour while playing games.
