Test the status of your battery


With the Smart Battery Technology available in the latest HP products, you can automatically test the status of your battery using HP Battery Check.
Equipped with a microchip, Smart Batteries maintain and report their own status, thus providing users with accurate information, whether they use different batteries in the same notebook or the same battery in different notebooks.

If you have HP Support Assistant, the latest version of HP Battery Check is already installed on your system.

If you are not using HP Support Assistant, HP Battery Check can be downloaded from here:
