How to check Battery Life left on Laptop in Windows XP.
If the battery icon is not available in the system tray area ( somewhere on the bottom right of your laptop) in your Windows XP system you may check it as follows.
– Go to Start -> COntrol Panel
– Click on the Power Options -> Power Meter
– This will show you the % of the power remaining in your system.
While the newer laptops have a battery icon as one of the icons on the bottom right sectio of your laptop, the older Windows XP based systems may not have this or may not be readily visible.
It may be necessary for you to check the battery life left, so that you know approximately how much more you can work before you get out of power. This time is required especially if you are, for example travelling by air and want to work while in the air.
