Do you ever consider how many hours the battery life on a laptop would be before buying it?

We do consider lots of other features like if it has Windows, WiFi, Bluetooth, a webcam, etc. But it becomes a problem when you are in a long meeting and your laptop screen suddenly goes dark, or you are travelling and have no access to a power outlet as you notice the battery running out.

In that case, a laptop with long battery life is not an option, it's a must.

Think about it. You can get more work done. You can have more time online browsing websites and social media. You can have more fun gaming. You can open video chats with colleagues, clients, friends and family anywhere. You would not have to worry about the battery ever getting flat.

Do you see the benefits here? It would be a great bonus for you.

So let's change your mindset now and think about getting the best laptop with the longest battery life in the market. Here are three laptops to look out for:

  • Dell XPS 13
  • Lenovo Yoga C930
  • LG Gram 17

Let's see why these laptops are the best in battery life.

    Hi thanks for this thorough post on the Best Laptops With The Longest Battery Life. I currently have a Dell which is in need of an upgrade so your review is a really great help. After reading you review Im leaning towards sticking with DELL. The main thing I really like about them is the back up service Im getting. Also looking for something light so this is the one to go for I think. Also like the fact that it has a touchscreen. Thanks for the information.

    I’m looking to get a laptop to further help my online enterprise. However, power supply in my community is not very stable, so I’m looking to get a laptop that can give me good battery life and still function well for my blogging. 

    I like the Asus NovaGo mainly because, it comes at a very decent price. Thanks for this recommendation, I really appreciate it.

    I used to be really huge on battery life about 8years ago when I was studying Software Engineering because I had to work on my codes with or without an access to a power outlet so it was really important to me that I wouldn’t buyba laptop with at least 7 to 8hours battery life. Now,since I switched careers,It hasn’t crossed my mind in the last two times that I purchased a laptop. So this is a good reminder for me as I am looking to purchase a lappy soon. I actually have never used an LG laptop and I think I have something I like with it. And the battery life is just perfect. Your list of laptops with the best battery life was a good reminder.

    Great tips! Yes, forgetting screen size, processing power or number of ports, WiFi, Bluetooth, a webcam, now. The first thing every laptop shopper should think about in a new purchase is battery life. After all, I don’t want my PC shutting down in the middle of a video chatting with colleagues or clients or coffee shop brainstorming session. I can actually say this post really give my understanding and helpful tips on choosing my next laptop to buy as I had consider to go for Asus NovaGo, with battery life performance up to  15 hours, which is great and some amazing features. Now, I don’t need to spend my days chained to an outlet or worrying that my laptop will run out of juice when you need it most. I will just go for Asus NovaGo.  Laptop with a long battery life is not an option, it’s a must!

    Thanks for that review. That Dell XPS 13 looks pretty cool as a travelling laptop for work. I’m always on the road for work and my laptop is always running out charge toward the end of the day. The fact that it is under $900 makes it pretty good value too.

    I also have the same problem with my LG android phone. Are you planning to review any phones with good charge life?

    For anyone who travels a lot, without access to a power point, battery life is a big consideration,the Assus NovaGo is the best.

    The most economical one, with a price of less than half of the others is Assus Novago at $509.99,so for those who cannot afford to pay a lot this is a good buy.

    For lightest weight the LG Gram 15 is the winner.

    Of the four, my personal preference, would be the Assus NovaGo on battery life and price, as well as the touch screen and tablet configuration.

    I wonder which laptop is the best taking all the technical considerations, such as speed, ram,graphics, and so on, into consideration?

      Taking into consideration the technical specs, out of the four reviewed, the LG Gram 15 is the more powerful of the four as it has more RAM, meaning more speed and more processing power. With graphics, they all have the same graphics power.

    Thank you for sharing this interesting article on Best Laptops with the Longest Battery Life. I have been using the lenovo Thinkpad T440s for a year now with the 6-cell external battery. It just keeps on going- sometimes a whole day in the office with full use (WiFi. full brightness etc.) and there’s still charge left in the evenings.I’ve even taken it camping knowing that I would get reliable use for many evenings without recharging (I don’t have a second external battery for it because one is enough! This is my experience with lenovo laptop battery.Thank you!
