Battery consumption problem

Hello friends
I asked a question a few days ago but no one answered!
About freezing and regenerating manjaro
But now I have another problem!
High battery consumption!?! But I do not know if the battery is weak and does not have the performance of the first day or there is another problem and the battery is healthy !!?
As I write this, my laptop battery was about 18% charged, but suddenly it was 3%
Please help me to understand where the problem is so that the situation does not get worse
thank you.

I use slimbookbattery to know the health and other parameters of the battery, also let you configure various modes of power management depending of ac/bat, your performance needs and other stuff.
I don’t recommend you let the battery discharging so much, you should plug in the ac power when it reach 20%/30% and unplug in when it reach 90%, your battery live would be appreciated.


Thank you for your feedback
So do you recommend me to use slimbookbattery or TLP?
I turn on the power whenever it reaches 20% or 15%, but today, when it was still 18% charged, it suddenly lost a lot of charge and became 3%.

Your inxi printout shows a battery health of 68%, that is quite low, so you could consider replacing your battery.

Thank you for your feedback
So I have to think about buying a new battery

I have another question

Why is manjaro frozen?
It has happened to me many times!
what’s the solution ?
Can a graphics card be a maker?

Slimbookbattery use TLP so you can use whatever you want. I had some problems with tlp in the past, maybe because I didn’t configure it right, so I changed to SBB.

Thank you for your help, dear friend

I also had problems with TLP on my AMD thinkpad. Switched to laptop-mode-tools, no problems since.

It will definitely be done
I tried to ask everyone in one place so that no other topics would be created
But I will not do it again
