Bluetooth devices are perfect if you want to get rid of all these cumbersome cables and keep your office in order. For example, I want to connect to my laptop via Bluetooth speakers and listen to music while I work.
But there’s something that drives me crazy: my Bluetooth speaker is empty while I’m listening to one of my favorite songs.
If you really hate it when your Bluetooth device runs out of battery power and disconnects from your computer, we have some good news for you. Windows 10 Redstone 5 displays the battery status of Bluetooth devices, so you won’t be surprised by low battery problems.
Determining the charge level of the Bluetooth battery under Windows 10
Monitoring the battery status of a Bluetooth enabled device is not easy because most of these devices do not support a Bluetooth battery monitor or battery status indicator. If some of them do, you will need to install additional software to find them. Windows 10 eliminates this requirement. All you have to do is….
- Adding a Bluetooth device
- Connecting the Bluetooth device
1] Add a Bluetooth device
The easiest way to display the battery of your Bluetooth device on your Windows 10 screen is to add a Bluetooth device. To activate the Bluetooth mode of your device, go to Windows’Settings’ > Devices >’Bluetooth and other devices’.
Click the “+” button next to “Add Bluetooth or other devices” and select the type of device you want to add.
2] Connect the Bluetooth device to the device.
- When the device appears below the Add Device screen, select it and press the Done button.
- After connecting, return to the Bluetooth screen and other devices and scroll down to the Mouse, Keyboard and Pen section.
- Simply move the mouse pointer next to the connected device to see the battery level.
If your device is equipped with a Bluetooth module, you can use it with various wireless devices. It allows you to connect your laptop or tablet to a variety of devices such as a mobile phone, wireless keyboards, mice, headsets and other tablets and laptops. With recent updates, Windows 10 can display the battery charge level of the Bluetooth device directly in the Application Settings. This can be useful if you have a Bluetooth mouse and/or keyboard.
Bluetooth hardware can be integrated into the motherboard of your device or installed as an internal module in the device. Bluetooth transmitters exist as an external device that can be connected to a USB port.
