    I have issue with my Razer 14 (2021) and the battery runtime. It's a great laptop, and Razer says it can run up to 12 hours on battery. When I'm only using the Brave browser on battery, running 60Hz, Battery saving is on in Windows 11 and 30% light on the screen, I only get around 3 hours :-(
    Any good ideas?

    Run hwinfo to check your power usage when using your laptop. Should typically run between 4-6w (idle) to 11-15w (light usage). If its higher than that 20-30w it means some program is keeping your cpu or gpu active in the background that is affecting your battery life

    Check your background processes, maybe some is eating your battery.
    Also what antivirus software do you use? Because some free are 'mining' some sus coins.

    Beside the solutions that other mentioned, try also use other (older) Nvidia driver. On Optimus laptops driver might also be a culprit of bad battery life.
