Check Battery Health and Energy Report on Windows laptops using CMD

When it comes to portable devices, battery usage information is one of the crucial elements that every operating system has. But when it comes to Windows laptops, the battery usage stats might not be in the reach of most of the users as the Settings app of Windows 10 only shows you, which application consumed what chunk of the battery life. Let’s extract some more information with the help of simple cmd commands and generate stuff like Battery Report and Energy Report.

To check battery health and generate Energy Report:

The energy report in Windows 10 can provide an idea of how much it’s capacity is reduced over time and if there are any errors or wrongly configured settings that hurt the battery life.

STEP 1:

Click on the Start button and search for cmd. In the search result, you will find Command Prompt. Right click on the Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator.

STEP 2:

  • The Command Prompt window will appear. Type the following command inside it – 
    powercfg/energy
  • Wait for about 60 seconds and the Energy Report will get generated.

 

 

STEP 3:

Open This PC and navigate through C:\WINDOWS\system32. And inside system32 folder, open the file name energy-report.html.

OR

Open the Run window by pressing Windows + R keys together and entering the following address:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\energy-report.html

 

 

To generate Battery Report:

The Battery Report looks a lot simpler than the Energy Report and it offers information about day-to-day battery usage. It displays the recent usage stats and graph for the past 3 days, battery usage history of how many hours the system was active per week, and per week battery capacity history to provide an idea of how much it has depleted in comparison to the original capacity.  On the basis of observed drains, the report also includes estimated numbers on how long the battery will last.

STEP 1:

Launch cmd in administrator mode as shown above.

STEP 2:

Type the command:

powercfg/batteryreport

 

 

STEP 3:

Open This PC and navigate through C:\WINDOWS\system32. And inside system32 folder, open the file name battery-report.html.

OR

Open the Run window by pressing Windows + R keys together and entering the following address:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\battery-report.html

 

 

The above method works for Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 as well.
