I was thinking of making the i5-9300H to consume less power and increase battery life by reducing its TDP to 15w whenever im not plugging in a wall charger. is it possible? will it have stability issues?
 
I'm sure if one selected Economy mode in WIndows Power plan, one might be limited to mostly 800-1200 MHz and easily achieve the 15W TDP envelope...

(you can play with HWMonitor and CPU-Z/bench/stress CPU to figure out what sort of clock speeds will keep you at a true 15 W level of consumption

If that is too slow, perhaps Intel's XTU might allow more flexibility with clock speeds under 1,2,3 or more cores loaded....
