How To Find Out What Battery My Laptop Has- Type,Quantity and Checking

Page view

  It is only a matter of time before you have to change your laptop battery. No matter how careful you are with your laptop, this task will have to be performed by somebody one day. Will that somebody be you, or you don’t mind leaving this task to someone else?

  My wildest guess is that you are a DIY fan, who has come to look for convenient ways through which this can be done. If I’m correct, then you have come to right place. By reading this content, you will be able to confirm everything you need to know about your battery. So, when the time comes, it will be easy to change the battery. Below, is everything you need to know.

  How do you find out what kind of battery your laptop has?A recent survey conducted by a tech company actually reveals that virtually 45% of computer users don’t have the slightest idea on how to know their battery type. Knowing the kind of battery your computer has shouldn’t be a difficult thing at all. That is because you certainly do not need any kind of technical knowledge to do that.

  Knowing the type of battery your system is using is as simple as carefully turning your computer upside down, and detaching the battery lock to remove the battery. Every single information you must be looking for will be printed on the body of the battery. Other related and important info will also be printed on the body of the system where the battery is encased.

  If you have never done this before, I’d recommend that you ask around or watch a YouTube video to have a proper understanding. It is a very simple process that can be completed by anyone. When you are done watching the video, you will understand how easy it can be to remove your battery from behind and find out what you need to know.

  For someone who does not like the mechanical and old-fashioned way of checking out their battery type, there are other ways through which they can get the information. You can get the job done by accessing DOS mode or what we call Command Prompt on your laptop.

  All the information can be accessed as the system is about to boot. That is, before entering the boot process. Select the ‘About’ or ‘Information’ tab to get whatever you are looking for. However, be warned that this method is only for people who are highly skilled in the use of computer. If you have never been to that part of your system, you might want to consider doing it the normal way.

  How do you know how many cells your laptop battery has?When you talk about ‘battery cells’, some computer users freak out instantly. A lot of people who use computers have never even heard of that phrase to begin with. But it is really nothing that should alarm you.

  There are a number of ways to confirm how many cells your battery is using. Like we have always emphasized, you can start with the old-fashioned way of having to look at the battery at the back of your laptop for all the necessary information. The number of cells your battery uses will be boldly written on the battery itself.

  But if your battery is not detachable, you would have to come up with other means of getting this done. One of such means is to go to your product manufacturer’s website. You would be asked to input the computer model number, and plenty of information will show up for you to see. Among that information will be the number of cells in your battery.

  Another easy method to know your battery cells number is by looking through the user manual that came with your laptop. Just head straight to the battery specification section, and you should find the information there.

  Finally, there is a technical way to do this even though it is a highly uncommon method that is unknown to like 85% of computer users. This method has to do with dividing the total voltage of the battery by the individual cell voltage. By doing so, you will easily know how may cells the battery is using.

  For your information, the number of cells in a battery are mostly 4, 6, or 9. These are the most general cases.

  How do you check your laptop battery health?It’s important to check the health of your laptop battery from time to time, right? You are absolutely correct about that. Therefore, how do you know how much power you are getting from your laptop battery?

  With a couple of Command Prompt commands, you can see everything about your battery health. This is what you should do for the different versions of Windows;

  Windows 7

  Type ‘cmd’ in the search programs & files box after clicking start

  Right click the cmd.exe file and select ‘run as administrator’

  Type powercfg –energy within the Command Prompt environment and hit enter

  A report called energy-report.html will be generated in the Windows/system 32 directory or folder inside Drive C. Open it and check the battery information section.

  Windows 8 & 10

  Click start button

  Input ‘cmd’ into the dialog box

  Type ‘powercfg/batteryreport and press enter

  A report called battery-report.html will be generated in Users/Your_Username_folder within your Drive C.

  This report usually contains a lot of relevant stats that reflect your battery’s health. However, you should be more focused on the Design Capacity vs. Full Charge Capacity. The Design Capacity happens to be laptop battery’s manufacturer strength, while the Full Charge Capacity talks about the highest charge you are getting at present.

  The lower the figure of the battery’s Full Charge Capacity, the lower the power delivery. If your Full Charge Capacity battery is lower than the Design Capacity value, then your battery needs to be replaced immediately.
