Laptop Battery Life increased in 14.04

I own a Dell Inspiron 15R laptop (Intel i5 @2.5GHz, 4GB RAM, 750GB HDD 7200rpm, 15.6inch display, Bluetooth, WiFi, etc) which is my primary machine for both work and personal use.
I made a clean installation with 14.04 64-bit and I have noticed that my battery GAIN 1.5hour battery life (total 3.5hours) with this new Ubuntu release compared with 12.04 64bit with the same use!!
I really don’t have any problem with that, actually I am thrilled, but I wonder why this is happening…
Note that I did NOT installed any extra packages such as laptop tools, tlp, etc just clean Ubuntu 14.04 installation.
Any ideas why is this happening…???
