One of most important thing is also to minimize wear of your battery which rises with battery age and way how it is used. You cannot stop aging of the battery, but you can know that based on how the battery works, its wear increases faster if you keep it always charged at 100%.
If you are using the laptop connected to AC all the day, you can switch charger circuits of your laptop to stop charging the battery at level much lower than 100%. Return charging mode to 100% capacity only if you are going to travel and expect extended 'unplugged' periods.
How to change battery charging mode:
This is the biggest catch. It depends on manufacturer and even model of your laptop. Every manufacturer builds their own charging circuits which need their own software to control them – this is the reason why I can't tell you name of universal tool – there is none. First search in set of your taskbar tray icons. Then check Start menu for items named like Energy Management or Power Manager. Check the keyboard paying attention to those Fn+key combinations. Consult online. Or simply skip all that and RTM.
For example, on my Lenovo Yoga, Energy Management taskbar tray icon opens this screen (labels (A) and (B) were added by me):
Option (A) enables charging to 100%.
Option (B) limits charging to 60%. Height of this threshold cannot be changed but its main purpose is met.
