This command will generate a battery report for your PC. The report will be in HTML format and will provide detailed information about your battery’s health, usage, and other relevant details.

Double-click on the “battery-report.html” file, and it will open in your default web browser. The report will contain information about your battery’s capacity, recent usage, usage history, and other relevant information.

By analyzing the battery report, you can gain insights into your battery’s performance, health, and usage patterns. This information can help you monitor your battery and make informed decisions regarding its usage and maintenance.

Remember to run the Command Prompt as administrator to ensure accurate and detailed battery information is generated in the report.
