Create A Battery Energy Estimation Report

On the grounds you own a laptop computer, upon It's Initial purchase, the battery life Is at It's peak- with some lasting as long as 5 to 6 hours. When you start Installing applications and perform various tasks, It's energy Is consumed a lot quicker, hence does not last as long. Wouldn't It be nice If you can get detailed Information about the battery's usage? Well, In this tutorial, I will show you how to create a "Battery Energy Estimation Report" as per the Image above.

Put simply, once the Battery Energy Estimation Report Is created, you can view all types of Information relative to the battery's consumption. For Instance, you can see disk, CPU and network energy, display energy consumption, the type of applications utilizing It's power and a lot more.

To achieve this, I will be using the powercfg utility (which controls the power system settings), by executing It as a command via the Windows Command Prompt. It will then automatically create a report In the form of a .csv file.

In other words, all that's required on your part, Is to enter the command, open the file and view the report. This Is an extremely simple process, so without further delay, let's get this tutorial started.

Step One:
The first thing you need to do, Is access the Command Prompt. Open the Search bar and enter cmd. At the top, right-click Command Prompt, and hit Run as administrator.

Step Two:
Next, Input the following command, and hit the Enter key on your keyboard.
powercfg /srumutil /output %USERPROFILE%\Desktop\srumutil.csv

Step Three:
A message will now be displayed, confirming that the operation completed successfully. The Battery Energy Estimation Report has now been created In the User Profile directory, so head over to that location. You can see the output In the Image below.

Step Four:
This Is the Battery Energy Estimation Report, In my User Profile folder. It's In the form of a .csv file, so I've used Microsoft Excel to open It.

Last Step:
And here's a snippet of It's contents. As you can see, there's an array of Information about my battery's usage. I can now see exactly what's utilizing It.

Final Thoughts:
There's a lot more to the Battery Energy Estimation Report than what's mentioned above, but I cannot possibly list every bit of Information. Once you open the file, It may seem a little overwhelming at first, but simply refer to each column name and It's respective details. If you're not sure about something, stating the obvious, hit a Google search.
