Windows 11 Battery Heatlh Report
No attachments for this post
Running a battery report periodically can be helpful for a few reasons
- It can help you troubleshoot any issues you might be having with your battery. For example, if you are noticing that your battery is not lasting as long as it used to, the battery report can help you identify the cause of the problem.
- It can help you determine if it is time to replace your battery. As batteries age, their capacity (the amount of charge they can hold) decreases. By comparing the design capacity (the capacity the battery was designed to hold) to the full charge capacity (the amount of charge the battery can currently hold), you can determine if your battery is holding a charge as well as it should be. If the full charge capacity is significantly lower than the design capacity, it may be time to consider replacing the battery.
- It can give you insights into your battery usage. The battery report includes information about how long your battery typically lasts, as well as which apps and processes are using the most battery power. This can help you optimize your battery usage by closing or uninstalling power-hungry apps, or by adjusting your settings to reduce the amount of power your device uses.
Overall, running a battery report periodically can help you keep track of your battery's health and performance, and make sure it is working optimally.
