Battery is a very important component for laptop, it helps your laptop can move and use in many places. In this article I will guide you to check the level of laptop batteries without having to install any other software.

Step 1: Press Windows + R key to open the Run window. Then enter cmd and select OK.

Step 2: Enter the powercfg / batteryreport command and press Enter.

Step 3: You access your User folder to read the battery status report file by the following: Open My Computer or This PC >> C drive >> Users >> Administrator.

Step 4: You drag down the bottom will have a file in the form of battery-report.html, Click the left mouse button to open up your browser.

There is a lot of information about your computer. Just check the Installed batteries section for battery information.

Design Capacity: The initial capacity of the battery is newly shipped.
Full Charge Capacity: Its actual "energy" capacity.
You can use the following formula to check your laptop battery status.
100 - (Full Charge Capacity / Design Capacity) * 100.
Example: 100 - (32234/41440) * 100 = 22.21%.
The higher the number, the lower the performance of your laptop battery.

My tutorial is finished. Wish you to check the success rate of laptop battery.

Thanks for the tutorial! I found out that my battery wear is already at 24%. It seems it aged well considering I've had the laptop for over 4 years. :)

No problem, I am glad I helped.
Of course, everything can get rusty over time, especially technology so you might want to consider buying new battery or maybe change your laptop ?
Did you had any plans on doing that or you would like to go with that one as much as possible ?
I feel you since I, too, have pretty outdated laptop.

I'll try to keep this laptop until it is no longer usable. If its battery gets worse, I'll just let it stay plugged in forever in my home. I'll set it up as a home entertainment system if it's too old to do anything well. :)

Nice guide, but I think you should've added that this is how you do it for Windows computers. I can't stress enough about the fact that I'm looking for solutions on Windows, and while reading realizing that it's a guide for Mac devices.

Next time, you could add this to the title, like so:
(WIN) Check for laptop battery life without software
That way, Mac users know they won't need to open the link.
