Windows 10: If your laptop's battery life seems shorter you won't like it. Batteries are consumable and it is very common not to last as long as your laptop.
Over time and in use, battery capacity decreases. So if it takes far less time than you bought it laptop you probably will have to buy a new one.
This can be done very easily as the batteries can be removed by the user himself. If your computer contains the battery internally, it is a good idea to look for the manufacturer's instructions before downloading the screwdriver.
But how will you know for sure that you need a new battery on your laptop?
From Windows 8, Microsoft has added a battery usage and performance report to its operating system.
Below we will see how you can use the feature to see the capacity of your battery compared to its "design capacity". This capacity is usually rated in Watt per Hours (Wh) and is statistical.
Battery history function, as mentioned above, is integrated with Windows 8 and Windows 10. It will compare your current battery capacity with the original capacity, so you can see how well it performs. If today's capacity has dropped significantly, you should buy a new battery.
To create a report for your battery, open a command prompt window by pressing the two Windows + X keys together and in the RUN window that opens write cmd and press Enter. Copy and paste the following command:
powercfg /batteryreport /output διαδρομή\iguru.html
"Path" is the full name of the path that leads to the folder where you want to save the report, for example:
Folders should already exist as the command will not create folders for you.
Press Enter and create an HTML file called iguru.html. You can open it with your browser. The above command only works on devices that have a battery. So do not try it on your desktop computer.
