Nowadays, most Windows users prefer to use Bluetooth devices like speakers, mice, or a keyboard. If you are worried about how much battery is remaining, Windows 11 lets you quickly check the battery life of Bluetooth devices in the Settings app. It may not show the remaining battery life of the Bluetooth devices when proper drivers are not installed. But when it works, it’s handy.

In this gearupwindows article, we will guide you on checking Bluetooth device battery life in Windows 11 and 10. Here is how to do it.
