Be it a smartphone or a laptop, most electronic devices are powered by batteries. The only drawback of battery powered devices is that batteries don’t last forever.
If you have a Windows 11-based laptop, you can quickly figure out the battery’s health by generating a battery health report. The battery report will help determine whether the battery needs a replacement or is good to go for a few more years.
So, if you have started facing battery-related problems on your Windows 11 PC, check out the steps below to generate a full battery report in Windows 11. The report will tell you everything you need to know about your device’s battery.
