Battery started to drain fast

My laptop is Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567. I bought in on May 2017. When I check the battery health in BIOS it says my battery is excellent. Before I could use it for 6-7 hours when I am watch something but now, I can only use it for 2 or 3 hours. How can I fix that ?

RE: Battery started to drain fast

I haven't noticed it on my system but Win 10 has some settings pages which will show battery usage per app.  Maybe it will show something consuming more power.

I assume this is when the system is active?

RE: Battery started to drain fast

Thank you for your answer. Yes, I checked that page and it says Google Chrome consumes half of battery but I only watch series on chrome and my battery dies after 2 or 3 hours of usage.

RE: Battery started to drain fast

My battery was showing 92% and 7:15.  I started watching a Netflix video on their app and it dropped to 1:35....

I suppose you have to compare the times with the same loading on a system since it is looking at the current power drain.

Edit:  After it gave me short time and the movie running for a few minutes, it jumped back to 4:01....
