  1. How do I recalibrate the battery percentage?


    I own an XPS 15 9570. I noticed that my battery, according to both the battery report and the intel graphics command center, currently has a charging capacity of around 64800 mWh. Which is much less than the design capacity of 97000.

    I figured I would try recalibrating the battery and seeing what happens. I ran it till it died, using it normally, charged it up, and did it again. But the second time I didn't use it and only ran a youtube video till it died. Here's the thing. The laptop automatically goes into hibernation when it reaches 4%. I turned it back on and continued the video thinking it would only last another 10-15 mins, but no. It lasted almost 1.5 hrs. So now I'm thinking that the percentage level is wrong. It stayed at 0% for probably 45 mins to an hour. Is this wrong? If so, how can I fix this?

  2. Battery Percentage Windows 10

    It makes no sense to not have a battery percentage indicator on mouseover. Clicking on the icon to see the percentage leftover is an extra step I'd rather not take.

    how to show battery percentage

    I've been searching and looking at the settings. Isn't there a way to show the battery percentage on the status bar at the top of the screen? Seems obvious this should be present but I can't find it.

    Here's what I found in a search - a very old request - https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/.../3543458-battery-percentage-at-the-status-bar

    Here's what I mean - In the picture below, you see my home screen. The battery percentage is not shown. I see a somewhat descriptive icon of a bettery, but would like to see the percentage.

    In order to see percentage, I have to actively swipe down as in the picture below -

    By comparison, here's the home screen on my older Android-based screen. You can see the percentage of the battery next to the icon.

    I'm assuming iOS does this also -

    Ideas?

    How do I recalibrate the battery percentage?

    Battery Percentage is not going

    Hello Prabash,

    I'm Jin, a fellow Windows 10 user and an independent advisor.

    I can see that plugging your laptop doesn't increase the percentage charged on the

    battery.

    Just to clarify, does charging stops at certain percentage or totally not charging the battery?

    There's also a possibility the the power consumption is too much for it to actually charge the battery, try keeping your laptop idle for 10-15 mins and see if there's a progress in the battery.

    If it stops charging on a certain percentage, try doing the steps below:

    1. Right-click on the battery icon.

    2. Select Power Options.

    3. Click on Change plan settings.

    4. Click on Change advanced power settings.

    5. Click Restore plan defaults.

    6. Then hit OK.

    Check as well if there is an installed utility from the manufacturer that may limit the charging capacity of your laptop. This are common to new laptops to extend the life of it's battery.

    You can also check the troubleshooting steps provided in this link:
