The best laptops for battery life are increasingly sought after, as we all get used to working on the move, around the house, in cafés and libraries, meeting rooms and trains – any place there isn't a guaranteed power socket available.

Things have greatly improved, though, thanks to both advances in battery design but also efficiency improvements in computer processors. Now there are a lot of options. And in the article below, you'll find the best laptops for battery life, based on our reviewers' experiences. To curate our list, we've considered a range of factors, including each laptop's power, portability, features and pricing, as well as how long the battery lasts.
