In a previous story, we were examining the Data Sense feature in the upcoming Windows 10 that would allow users to monitor their Internet data usage both on WiFi and on Cellular connections. Now we’re talking about the battery saver option that’s meant to help users conserve their battery life.

As you can see for yourself in this screenshot, the battery saver feature in Windows 10 is still half-baked, as it was released as part of the most recent preview build of Windows 1. However, just like DataSense, it’s another step forward in deploying more mobile features to Windows 10, which, would please tablet and hybrid owners, despite common belief that Windows 10 is meant to please disgruntled desktop users.

If you have already downloaded Windows 10, you can find the new Battery Saver function under PC Settings. What Battery Saver does is simple and pretty straightforward – it limits the background activity and adjusts hardware settings so that it can increase the battery life span. It’s also possible for Battery Saver to turn on automatically or manually.

It will also be possible to set Automatic Rules that define when Battery Saver mode should start. This reminds of a basic IFTT recipe, so if your battery gets below 30% or whatever you choose, you can set it to turn on. Also, when the battery saver mode is active, you will will see a specific symbol next to the better icon.
