    2 Batteries?


    Hi, so I've seen that some laptops have 2 batteries. You click on the Battery Symbol and it'll say Battery 1: #% Charged and Battery 2: #% Charged
    I was wondering if my laptop could have 2 batteries? That would be great to know if it could! If it can, can I have a link to the battery? Thanks in advance!

    Only if flip it over and look for any panels beside the battery, that can be removed for the other battery or options bay.

    That doesn't make much sense... Please explain it in plain English.

    Agree with MCPlayer8 of vagary of "solution", especially since some laptops/notebooks only have one panel as in my Asus Zenbook. But yeah you could just remove the panel to see, but that a bit drastic unless replacing the battery.

    That said, why (MCPlayer8) not just lookup the specs online for the laptop. I'm sure it'll tell you what and how many batteries it has.

    Could install Speccy and look under Operating System. There is battery info listed there.

    It (one of them) could be BIOS / CMOS battery.
