Android provides an easy way to check your battery health. Battery health is essential because it tells you whether you need to replace your battery or not. If your battery health is not good, then you need to change your battery in order to use your smartphone for a long time.
How to find battery health on Android
Step 1: Go to Settings on your Android smartphone and select Battery.
Step 2: Here, you can see the status of your battery, including the current level of power, how much power has been drained with recent usage, and so on.
Step 3: If you want detailed information about the status of the phone’s battery, tap Battery Health at the bottom of the screen and tap Start Monitoring. This will start monitoring the status of the phone’s battery.
Step 4: Tap Done when finished. Now you can go back to Settings and select Battery again to see more details about the status of all three factors that determine how well a phone’s battery works.
Unlike previous Android versions, Android 9 Pie and up users can access more information about their battery, including the health of the cells within it.
Tapping a battery cell will tell you how is performing. Each cell will be rated on a scale of 0-100%, but the scale isn’t consistent across all phones. The rating can also change during the course of a charge, when the battery is being used or when it’s not in use. Cell performance degrades over time, so these ratings are only estimates of how well a cell is still performing. This will help you determine if your battery needs to be replaced or if there’s something wrong with your phone.
If you have an Android phone that’s running Android 9 Pie or newer, follow these steps to check your battery health:
- Swipe down from the top of your screen and tap on the Settings icon.
- Scroll down and tap on Battery.
- Tap on “Battery Health” near the top of your screen.
- You’ll now see three numbers followed by “Healthy.”
These numbers represent your current battery health. The first number is for maximum capacity, which is how much full capacity your battery has.
