Here’s how to get Windows PC Battery Health and Battery Cycle Count
Follow these steps to get your battery report.
1) Click on Windows logo / Start, type “PowerShell”.
2) Click on “Windows PowerShell” to open PowerShell.
3) Once PowerShell is opened (blackscreen window), type the following: powercfg /batteryreport.
4) It will then generate report into battery-report.html file on a path specific to your Windows PC.
5) Get the full path and open battery-report.html to find the battery report.
Under Installed batteries section, you should be able to see 3 important indicators, they are:
|CYCLE COUNT||Shows cycle count of your battery. The higher the number means more wear and tear to your battery. If you can’t see the CYCLE COUNT being populated, then you can make use of the 2 indicators below.|
|DESIGN CAPACITY||Shows the battery capacity in mWh (milliwatt hours) when it fresh from factory / when your Windows PC is totally brand new.|
|FULL CHARGE CAPACITY||Shows the current battery capacity in mWh (milliwatt hours). Apart from CYCLE COUNT, you can make use of FULL CHARGE CAPACITY / DESIGN CAPACITY to get to know your battery wear and tear. If DESIGN CAPACITY of your battery is 60,000 mWh and FULL CHARGE CAPACITY is 30,000 mWh only, that means your battery health is at 50%.|
