2) Unplug the battery – improve your battery life + your gaming performance!

Disconnecting Laptop Battery

On battery, a notebook cannot work at the peak of it’s performance percentage. It is one of the main causes of the deadly FPS (frames per second) of a game which is being played on a laptop. To improve the performance of your game, you need to unplug your battery. The reason of it is that, when a high-graphics game starts, it heats up the whole system, including battery. When a battery reaches the certain high amount of temperature, it starts to slow down the speed of the processor, graphics card and some other important stuff. This not only damages/decreases the FPS of your game, but also the battery life of your notebook.

So, unplugging the battery till you play the game can play an important role in speeding up your game.
