Browse up to an hour longer

According to our tests, the Opera browser runs up to 35% longer with the battery saver on, compared to other browsers like Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Depending on your laptop model, this might give you an extra hour of browsing away from a power outlet.

How to enable the battery saver feature in Opera

To keep things simple, we've placed the battery saver icon right next to the search and address field. You'll see it when your laptop's power cable is unplugged. Click it and flip the switch to activate the battery saver.

And, whenever your battery goes down to 20%, we will give you a nudge to switch the battery saver on and enter power saving mode.

Battery saver in the Opera browser: Extend your laptop battery life

Browse longer

Đánh bài quỳ The Battery saver feature will help you extend your laptop battery life when unplugged, much like battery saving apps but without the need to download extensions. What it does, all behind the scenes, is prioritize your browser’s activities - reduces activity in background tabs, tweaks your video-playback parameters, reschedules JavaScript timers, pauses plug-ins and stops animations.

Switch it on

Đánh bài quỳ The first time you unplug your laptop while using Opera, the battery saver icon will appear to the right of your address bar, along with an offer to activate power saver mode. When enabled, the battery saver feature will be active whenever you’re unplugged, giving you longer battery life.

Đánh bài quỳ If you haven’t done so already, you can switch on the Battery saver feature in your Settings. To do so:

  1. Go to Settings (Alt+P).
  2. On the left panel, click Advanced, followed by Features.
  3. On the main page, under Battery saver, toggle on Enable battery saver.

In the same location, you can later enable/disable battery saver, select when the feature will automatically activate, and decide whether to show the battery saver icon.

See the results

When battery saving mode is active, and if you have the battery saver icon enabled, you will see the small battery-shaped icon on the right side of your address bar. Click on it to see the estimated battery life remaining, as well as an on/off switch for the feature. Since the battery saver mode is built into the free Opera browser, you don't need to use a separate battery saver app.
