Share

This article describes steps one can take to check the battery level of a Bluetooth device in Windows 11.

Windows supports Bluetooth which allows you to stream music, send data, and communicate with nearby devices wirelessly with ease. When you turn on Bluetooth in Windows, devices that are paired will also send their battery status to Windows.

If the Bluetooth device has an app, you may be able to check the battery level using the app. However, Windows 11 can show you the battery level of Bluetooth devices using the Settings app.

Below is how to view that in Windows 11.

How to view the battery level of Bluetooth devices in Windows 11

As described above, Windows 11 can show you the battery level of Bluetooth devices using the Settings app.

Below are steps that show you how to do that.

Windows 11 has a centralized location for the majority of its settings. From system configurations to creating new users and updating Windows, all can be done from its System Settings pane.

To get to System Settings, you can use the Windows key + I shortcut or click on Start ==> Settings as shown in the image below:

Alternatively, you can use the search box on the taskbar and search for Settings. Then select to open it.

Windows Settings pane should look similar to the image below. In the Windows Settings app, click Bluetooth & devices on the left.

On the right, you will see the Bluetooth device’s tile with information about the device as well as its battery level if it supports showing battery info.

The tile on the System -> Bluetooth & devices settings pane only shows the recently connected devices. If you don’t see the device, click the View more devices link.

On the System -> Bluetooth & devices -> Devices settings pane, you will find all Bluetooth-connected devices.

Find the device you want to check its battery level.

If a Bluetooth device is paired with Windows but you still don’t see a battery level, it means the device doesn’t send battery information.

That should do it!
