    Hey everyone, just had a couple of questions regarding the High Performance settings for laptop batteries.

    1.) To me, selecting the High performance settings is like overclocking your laptop. It probably isn't, but my question is : If I set my laptop battery settings to High Performance, will it wear down my laptop? (like overclocking)

    2.) In your experience with High Performance, does your laptop make more fan noises? (since it IS on high performance, your laptop is working harder right?)

    Thanks for taking a look! (y)

    High Performance just means less power-saving, no reduced CPU clock speed, and longer or non-existent automatic shutdown of the screen or PC itself. It is the setting that wears the battery the fastest, but won't wear down your machine.
