How do I check the health of the battery on my device?
To check the health of your batteries on your device you can generate a Battery Report. This can be done on devices with Windows 10 or Windows 11.
- Right-click on the Start icon and select Windows PowerShell (Admin) if you are on Windows 10 or select Windows Terminal (Admin) if you are on Windows 11.
- If you are asked for permission to make changes to your device, choose Yes.
- Enter powercfg /batteryreport /output "C:\battery-report.html" and press Enter.
- PowerShell will tell you that the Battery life report was saved. You can now open File Explorer and access the C drive. Here you can double-click on the battery-report.html file to view the report.
