How do I diagnose my laptop’s battery life?
Double-click the Battery Optimizer icon on your desktop to open the program and follow the procedure given below:
1. On the home screen of Battery Optimizer, click on the ‘Run Diagnostic’ button to get started:
You should now be presented with a screen specifying the details of the scan and offering two separate scanning options, namely ‘Express Scanning Mode” and “Comprehensive Scanning Mode”.
“Express Scanning Mode” – The Express mode is faster, as this will test the specified devices once.
“Comprehensive Scanning Mode” – The comprehensive mode will take longer, as this will test the specified devices three times, to return more accurate results.
2. Unplug your laptop from the power source, select the preferred scanning mode and click on the “Begin Diagnostic” button to start the scanning process.
[IMPORTANT: Please DO NOT use your laptop during the scanning process]
After the scanning process is complete, you will be presented with the following results:
Current Battery Charge, Battery Health, Time Left at Current Charge, Potential Battery Life with Maximum Optimizations and Potential Gain in Battery Life with Maximum Optimizations.
