How to Check Battery Health in HP Laptops in Windows 10/11


If you have an HP laptop and want to observe its battery condition then you’re in the right spot. In the guide, you’ll learn how to check battery health in HP laptops on Windows 10 and Windows 11 OS.

Meanwhile, batteries, like the one that powers your laptop, aren’t designed to last forever. Although it may appear that the power source that keeps your computer running should be the technological equivalent of a perpetual gobstopper, your laptop battery, like any other battery, has a life cycle that must come to an end at some time.

Because of this, it’s crucial to keep an eye on the condition of your laptop battery: it may and will expire at some time, and you don’t want to be trapped changing it in a rush. Furthermore, just because the battery has died does not necessitate the purchase of a new laptop.

So, here are the methods to check battery health in HP laptops:
