Checking Windows 11 laptop battery health can be important if you own a portable PC that’s running Microsoft’s latest OS.

In Windows 11, you can check the health of your laptop’s battery using the steps below. Here’s how you can access and check your Windows 11 laptop battery health:

1. Open the Start menu, then search for Command Prompt

Press the Windows button on your laptop’s keyboard, then in the search tab type ‘Command Prompt’.  

2. Run Command Prompt in administrator mode

After the ‘Best match’ menu pops up, right click on the Command Prompt app and click ‘Run as administrator’.  

3. Type powercfg /batteryreport /output “C:\battery_report.html” and press enter

Once you’re in Command Prompt, type this line of code exactly as follows: powercfg /batteryreport /output “C:\battery_report.html” and press enter. This will generate a battery report that immediately saves to your C drive. 

4. Navigate to the “C:\battery_report.html” file on your C drive

To find the battery report you’ve just generated, open your File Explorer from the Windows 11 taskbar, then click ‘This PC’. From here you want to navigate to the ‘Devices and drives’ section. Once you have, open your C drive, where your new ‘battery_report.html’ file should be sitting at the bottom of the folder.  

5. Click the html link to view the battery report

After clicking this html link, your battery report will open in your default browser. From here you can check everything from ‘Usage history’, ‘Battery capacity history’, to ‘Battery life estimates’.  

And there you have it. You now know how to quickly check the battery health of your Windows 11 laptop. This obviously isn’t a process you’re going to have to regularly run through if your laptop is relatively new, but for older models, it’s probably worth checking on your battery health every few months. 

Please note that the Battery Health feature in Windows 11 provides an estimate of your battery’s health based on its current capacity compared to its design capacity. It can give you an indication of how well your battery is performing over time.
