Display remaining time for battery on a laptop in Windows 11

In Windows 11, if you view the power of the remaining battery without the PC connected to the charger, you will see the remaining battery percentage.

You can also set Windows 11 to display the remaining percentage, including the remaining time. So you can simply and quickly see, by hovering your mouse over the battery icon in the system tray, how much time remains for the current battery charge.

To display the remaining time of the current battery charge, you need to modify the Windows registry. Here’s how it works.

Display remaining time for battery on a laptop in Windows 11

To begin, open the Windows registry. Right-click on the Start button, in the menu, click on “Run”. Next, in the “Run” window type: regedit.exe

Then, in the Windows registry, open the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power

You will create three DWORD values here in the following manner. Right-click on the free box on the right. In the menu, click New and then “DWORD (32-bit) value”.

New dword-32-bit value

You will create the following three values “EnergyEstimationEnabled“, “EnergyEstimationDisabled“, and “UserBatteryDischargeEstimator“. If one of the values already exists, skip it.

Then open only the “EnergyEstimationEnabled” value by double-clicking on it. You change the value data to “1” instead of “0” without quotes. You leave the rest of the values as “0”.

Below you can see the result:

EnergyEstimationEnabled

Now reboot your computer. After the reboot, if you move the mouse over the battery icon in the system tray, you will see the remaining percentage and the remaining time.

Battery status and time remaining

Please note that you will only see the remaining time if the battery charge is low and the laptop is not connected to the charger.

I hope this has helped you. Thanks for reading!
