All About Laptop Battery Saver Mode in Zwift

Our friend Shane Miller just published a helpful Quick Zwift Tip from down under on Zwift’s “Laptop Battery Saver” option:

Key Takeaways

Laptop Battery Saver mode could just be called “Frame Rate Limiter Mode”, since that’s what it does. It slows down the frame rate in Zwift to conserve your battery.

This setting is available under your main settings menu only on Mac or Windows laptops, and is only used when your laptop is running on battery power.

There are four options:

  • Off: Max Speed
  • Min Battery Saver: 30 FPS
  • Med Battery Saver: 20 FPS
  • Max Battery Saver: 15 FPS

Configuration changes happen in real time (no need to restart Zwift after changing), and graphic level detail (ultra, high, etc) stays the same regardless of the setting.
