Battery settings overview
Settings in this subgroup control the customization of battery actions and thresholds.
Windows will execute the
- The DefaultAlert1 Threshold, for systems which use the ACPI control method battery interface, is provided by default capacity of low
- The battery charge level configured via provisioning or powercfg (the
Critical Battery Threshold)
For example, if a device with one battery has the first value as 10% and the second value as 5%, the battery would enter the critical battery power state at 10%.
To view these two values, run pwrtest.exe /info:battery from a repro system.
In the case of a device with multiple batteries, the Critical Battery Action will execute if any of the batteries are in a critical battery power state.
