    you cant increase the battery life but you can either buy new batter (I'd rather buy a new lappy) or use the laptop with plugged in to the main.

    There are several methods to increase the usage time of battery powered laptop. To increase the life of the battery (as for being able to use it for more months, there are other methods).

    To increase the active usage time of your laptop on battery - dim the back-light of the screen, set the max processor usage to 80-90%, remove external devices that you have attached to it - USB, printers, head-phones, turn off the wi-fi, turn off the sound, turn off the optical devices (if it has built-in), remove the eye-candy of your operating system ect....

    Click on the battery icon and change the setting to "Power saver".

    Hit it with a large hammer. That will rearrange the electrons. No guarantee that this will work.
