rcoj5d
But it kept going up
bcff5d
So refresh lol
qhzqwwcgfs5d
haha
ismchomjw5d
One of the things they usually do is turn the brightness down to the level where it would be un-usable for most people
eaztufhxx5d
Interesting
riicbkpgz5d
But will it blend?
raffkculd5d
I'm not sure why everyone keeps complaining about Chrome eating battery, I have it running all the time playing YouTube and don't really feel like it's killing my battery 🤷‍♂️
igyzfrsdn5d
I had a computer science prof that installed it on all the lecture hall terminals she used and she would show it to the class before and after and laugh. She loved that thing. I later became an Onsite IT administrator for the university as an intern and regularly had to clean spyware off those machines. It was the worst
idebvaqmo5d
How long does your battery last?
rcohdshjx5d
Haven't really counted, but think depending on what I do I can get 5 hours at least
hmmdmoqnj5d
My 2015 MBP is still good for about 2hrs of Intellij + Scala dev with all the phone-home, antivirus, encryption and backup stuff my company uses. I’m actually pretty impressed with that mileage 😛
eljoihjcq5d
Like I stayed in airbnbs where I'm working on one spot (on battery) and charging on another spot, so at some point I have to make a break from all the work to charge battery, but it's definitely hours and hours of work
stwgfogwa5d
I think it’s IntelliJ.. we are all mentioning it
fdca5d
It’s definitely chrome
oizk5d
It’s widely known chrome is a hog
vxbrnpovh5d
So if I stop using chrome it should get better?
zwxqxuvyy5d
Is there something that doesn’t suck though?
kyxq5d
Try shutting down chrome
qndz5d
When you’re not using it - while your devving
pfyo5d
Your battery life will go through the roof
hphnrcpsw5d
My dev cycle on my current projects is edit/review of a web app though.. so I’m using the browser every minute or two
pfphrvrdk5d
Would Firefox fix it?
knsgvct5d
OK I just switched to Firefox (ported all my tabs :joy_cat:) and will see whether this improves battery life. - First noticeable difference The silence! Fan is so much quieter than before.
wzhnaodqu5d
I wonder if there’s some app that restores tabs in either browser
eomrbasfv5d
Chrome dev tools are second to none, it would be nice to be able to restore into it without recreating my tab chains
mhkmrmm5d
Didn't bother to check - was quite interesting to look at them all, so I did it manually
vvefmqw5d
But it would indeed be a nice tool to have
ffglaglxzwmyh5d
Check out tab-transporter on Github
aitlkcs5d
_... where source and destination are Google Chrome or Safari._
xgwynxl5d
Nice try though 🙂
lmmnkuzpmmynp5d
I can't post links here, but if you look at the projects's issues, I created a version that works with Safari -> Firefox
rgaoouigpyvlb5d
Mac only though
ivlypcx5d
which still restricts it to Mac-only
zykdpjx5d
yep
nuuhkzb5d
But fwiw the docs contained this nice plugin which might be handy at some point >https://www.one-tab.com/>
qxms5d
I use dev tools in chrome too
kidz5d
I’m just militant about closing it when I’m not using it
xyphxpun5d
I use safari, only need to charge my MBP once a week!
lmqzadvpu5d
That energy impact is usually ~14. Most of it being the GPU
fpmhhatyt5d
hmm
dtcikegkm5d
mysqld has an impact of 40
gtffpcqit5d
on mine
jhaabzcmc5d
slack has an impact of 15.3
ftdhzexqb5d
ah, yeah, Chrome as ffsyr said
qgamhegp5d
VMs burn a lot of battery too
nzzndobvj5d
all my VMs are in the cloud, where they belong
yrhsebunm5d
yikes
wtqojrcxb5d
firefox didn’t use to be this bad
gveulutkl5d
they can’t possibly have broken menus for all mac users, hmm
jejl5d
I still use chrome heavily - it’s the best for dev
khbp5d
it’s just a hog
mjdh5d
and even stuff like The Great Suspender doesn’t seem to help all that much
zxxrmklon5d
its surprising they can’t make it better
ndxsjndlv5d
or that its not a priority
pcoypogrl5d
chromebooks have good battery life though, so in theory chrome can run nicely
lubx5d
it’s not their priority
mjcu5d
chromebooks have good battery because nothing runs on it
mwsc5d
google engineers flat out say - they make -zero- compromises for mobile
pipb5d
their cultural charter is to assume you’re plugged in
hjkqqaommuygomcf5d
I fear for the safety of my feet, but my daughter fucking loves her Duplo shit
eplwfhzzaoqalarb5d
enough that she ignores the tablet for hours on end and forget it exists
sipm5d
good
womh5d
when I have children, they’re not getting a tablet
ipzp5d
there’s nothing more unnerving to me than children at a dinner table playing on tablets
ypcqxlefc5d
I feel the same way. But also a part of me feels really naive to think that I’ll have the energy to keep them entertained myself
nyfx5d
somehow people managed for thousands of years
ftlx5d
but you have to be consistent and start young - once you destroy their attention span, and they become tablet zombies, there’s nothing you can do
grfk5d
it becomes like a drug
fyfx5d
it’s incredible how many people have surrendered their children to that
qmly5d
you see families at restaurants, their kids just vegetating, staring blankly at tablets
rzqexiiebsgmqbebqb5d
I’m pretty liberal, but will take a hard stand on tablet devices.
iwlfoejhegdrgmzzoo5d
I try to avoid using my phone too much also.
hibiuisnuvdkynicmg5d
No phones/tablets in bedrooms is a house rule that I’ll happily stick to, in addition to enforcing it on my kids.
lcaaeqforbqzlog4d
If things culturally and technologically stay the same as they are how, your kids will somehow get access to their phones at night to text
xboocelun4d
jitft If I'm at the restaurant I prefer kids who silently stare at the screens than the ones who run around shouting 😄
fxvszzmksszva4d
My previous laptop was a Blade 14, and bought it used from a friend. He warned me the battery life wasn't that great, only got like 2-3 hours.

On buying it, I wiped Win10, installed and configured fresh for my tools and turned off the usual crap. I was easily getting 4-6 hours.
veinrojtebufv4d
A MBP 15 2019 has a 83W/hr battery. A RB15 has an 80W/hr. They both have about the same wattage CPU and likely similar power usage on other power hungry guts (like the display), and honestly the Razer's GPU is a bit less thirsty due to Max-Q which can change the voltage rapidly and in a huge swathe of power profiles based on load (but if you care about max battery runtime you're not using much GPU)

It's completely about the specific applications running, system setup, and personal usage patterns.
ufuilebcjefag4d
Best tip I have for Windows users to increase their battery life:
1. Dim the display, it is a thirsty component
2. Have Task Manager start on startup, and show the icon in the tray. If that bar fills up, switch to it and identify processes that are taking resources. Use the Process and App history tab as your guide
3. Consider what you have installed in the background... Services that are constantly scanning the disk for changes to sync? Databases that are running in memory even though you're not using them? Databases setup to periodically index to make it run faster? (examples like this can be configured out, or set to stop/start with simple batch scripts)
4. Be sure to use the power profiles Windows provides.
5. More advanced users can undervolt, repaste, set different profiles in ThrottleStop to reduce maximum CPU speeds (there's big gains here, but it's not without risk to stability)
tdjmshhxtxkyg4d
Also, on a RB15 specifically... Dim that keyboard lighting, or turn it off when you've got a long battery session in front of you (it's pretty, but also pretty thirsty for electrons)
gmcjhdjanunik4d
Another RB15 tip If you do want to start/stop a service like a database, or device driver process, make a folder called /synapse_systemscripts/ and put batch/powershell scripts to manage system resources into there. You can setup Synapse to run those as macro hotkeys, and with a bit of Google it's easy to setup a script to toggle things like system services or registry setting
fefqjctfudaxc4d
Control+Alt+D+B 😉
glyc4d
omnmkiuafd I’m the vein, I’d rather they be tied to a chair and muzzled than run around shouting as well. Luckily those aren’t the only two options
zhrsdtwrxiwpqiqs4d
I agree no tablets for children and when they do get tech they will have fixed time frames.
onvvrjzxycqrapdg4d
.
opjadkui4d
hfzmssekmocslh you’re not talking about Postgres/mysql are you? Some other databases?
yglfrznc4d
Never noticed any battery life consumption from letting mysqld or Postgres run in the background
yipabsvbxuolf4d
It really depends on the DB and how you have it configured
gckb4d
What databases periodically index?
rrlx4d
Aren’t almost all indexes written on write?
jnogzcssavexv4d
SQL server for one runs a lot of maintenance tasks if configured as such (default). Indexing might be the wrong word...
gypv4d
Why companies do this without notifying anyone is beyond me
xeyn4d
And then to make it opt out
oqhl4d
It’s a shame that unifi is so damn good
ovqhbxuztjnon4d
Yeah. I can understand opt-in, some customers would be okay with that, especially if they saw the data first. Others are getting blindsided and wondering if critical infrastructure information is getting leaked
tzhbxvwarpunb4d
I could imagine there's at least one military IT nerd out there having a bad week
hjbz4d
I give Unifi wide berth, because it’s just so good, lol
ixub4d
maybe I’m a hypocrite
pghasooctwpal4d
Hehe, no judgement, just informing you. I know you use their kit a lot
ptrx4d
I do - and I rely on their stuff being so interconnected anyways
hjjp4d
I think this is more for networks that aren’t connected to their cloud management stuff
axql4d
I assumed they were pulling info
rfxdxxfgdtjmwaop4d
Probably going to back that. I love their battery that I bought a few months back
qagtwkdn4d
Yup, this looks like a must-have.
zciufkejdrfjnorf4d
How did they get it so small?
otfnlyzevbainoh4d
Is that significantly different from, say, >https://www.tommox.com/usb-charger/48.html> ?
ihowmijkbokikec4d
I get that it’s 100W, and the one I’m linking is 75W, but that’s the only real difference right?
pgjq4d
rlxniaopeairzuvt that’s a charger, what i linked is a battery
xxog4d
Oh shit - never mind lol
gtii4d
It was hyperjuice so I just assumed - and the pic through me off
ehtz4d
But yes, main difference is 100W, which is a pretty big deal
ztik4d
I just fell asleep with my AirPod Pros, sleeping on my side something I’ve not done with my old AirPods. Woke up and had no issues
rbfm4d
That can charge two laptops at once. The one you linked to can only do 1
gnlcqgnovrxn4d
hmm, yeah I might jump on that charger too. my next laptop should be USB-C, so this will be killer. thanks drbes
oyid4d
*threw
pyinbticn4d
lmctpvagcfodrtyzj Can't remember where I heard it but one good suggestion was to get (can't remember the name) the device which turns off the devices after some triggers, so like if your kids watched TV for an hour it will turn it off, the good deal about it is that kids can't really blame you, it's that devices fault for not letting them watch more TV and you are on their side but you can't do anything about it.
tdryhcirt4d
That might be useful charger to have, but I'm so tired of backing things that don't always deliver that I kind of trying to stay away from Kickstarters/Indigogos 🤔
kgcqwafisnmyqljs4d
Every time I want to play this game, COD MW, there is another massive patch. Like what are they doing? 12 GB
icltulituflppna4d
The one I linked to is cheap and works fine and shipping, if you don’t need to charge two laptops at the same time
bubezjfpx4d
They are just writing random data in your storage troll
ifauwrvgdedizcgc4d
p2p storage
vgot4d
Use the coupon vpndeal - makes it $15 for lifetime
hxsikrhmviklfzgp4d
cpenoeuqsc I don't need my future children to love me about their internet usage. I don't think parents should seek their children's approval.
gzrpkwbuqvtakwpquh4d
I think consistency is what’s clear.
xinqufxjkcolzgzppr4d
Kids subconsciously note inconcistency and double standards.
bfkpzxrvgryrhphllw4d
And they follow examples, far more than rules.
bhznqpikzwaexcctbb4d
So… I would make a point of not using my tablet in my bedroom. And surrending it at dinner, etc.
yhcwowhmvnidschvrg4d
And going for walks without a device with me.
juxwfdemykoacvmm4d
Ya that makes sense, I think there are some studies that validate that.
ubtpgxbgmo4d
Bruh I'm switching to a flip phone at bambino número uno
vdalswfevo4d
And getting dial up
zwarondnjja4d
😂
ienxiofxrp4d
Saw a kid begging for moms attention today at a cafe
knlakykaax4d
It was tragic
qhmuiagjglwiyyipxg4d
My ex-girlfriend was pretty militant about how rude using my phone was, when with her… and made me more sensitive about using it in front of other people.
kplexozrgpgacjouum4d
And I think this is a good thing.
sfagfaibwy4d
It is a good thing
rybkrcjzsqb4d
I'm a bit mixed about it; if you're on a date or in a social group I think at pretty rude but like if I'm out to a cazh lunch with a good friend and we're both anti social and just hungry, I'm not offended, probably because I also will bloop about on my phone some too
ttgkkkwawmptoywjzp4d
Yeah, I think that’s a fair description.
ymfrrsokadeqrbsdpt4d
Or I’ll say, ‘Sorry, I’m just doing X and I’ll be right with you’.
debfzvhzspahtfxddl4d
Performing a task is fine.
