Poor battery life - Razer Blade 15 Advanced Model

The battery in my Razer Blade 15 only lasts around 1.5 hours with only streaming running. I have only had it for a year and a half. Is there a replacement battery and does in fall under warranty? This is the worst battery life I have ever had even compared to my old Alienware and Dell XPS especially considering the premium price paid for the machine. I am in Australia and the only stockist in the Microsoft Store which offers no help when it comes to Razer.

Hey there! Thanks for sharing your laptop's battery concern here. And yes, I find that unacceptable as well. However, there are factors why it's providing a short battery life. Please send me a PM together with your laptop's serial number so I can check for its available updates. Let's continue from there.
Hey, I have the exact same issue ever since I started using the laptop.
I have Razer Blade Advanced 2019, RTX-2080 Max-q. I get around 1 up to 2 hours of battery life with no extra load (simple web browsing). And this is on battery saving mode with almost everything turned off, and no background apps running.
I need your support, thanks.

Thanks for pointing that out. I've replied to your PM. I'll wait for your follow-up.
Hi there, I have just bought a brand new Blade 15 (base model) and experiencing shocking battery life, typically around 2.5hrs (3hrs max). This is the case when I am simply web browsing, with a few MS programs running (Wor/dExcel etc.) in the background, and on battery saving mode. I have tried closing background applications and had no luck. Could you please assist?
Hey,
I’ve fixed mine and I reach the ridiculous (up to) 8-9 hours (from previous 1.5 - 2.5 hours).
First you need to stop applications background refresh from windows settings (first stop all of them and later enable what you beed). Preferably your calendar and mail should be off.

The second thing to do is to go to power settings and open your current power plan while on battery.
Change settings accordingly but most importantly tweak two three things:
1. Set your cooling system to passive (fans drain battery like crazy) while on battery
2. At the Processor section set the MAX frequency to ~70-80% and the MIN to 0%
3. Finally at the PCI Express change to maximum battery saving

Next thing to do is close the Razer apps if possible. I noticed they are consuming power while running in background.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for sharing!

Hey hbange97. I replied to your PM. I'll wait for your follow-up.
Same problem. Got 2 h with only powerpoint and Clementine (music player) running. No wifi, no email sync, etc...

Regarding the @byteVoltAMBER341 tweaks, 2 on 3 were already sets, so I don't have a real difference.
I got a balde 15 basic model with rtx 2070 (ref Rz09-0328).
