Specy not reporting second laptop battery

Recommended Posts

I have a Dell Latitude D830 with 2 batteries; the standard 9-cell battery plus a 2nd media bay battery that goes into the DVD drive slot when the drive is removed.


Both batteries are reported correctly on my desktop background with the Sysinternals BGInfo program:

• Battery Name(s): DELL 00


• Battery Charge(s): 100

105 %


The following tags are being used to report this data:

<Battery Name> WMI Query SELECT Name FROM Win32_Battery

<Battery Charge> WMI Query SELECT EstimatedChargeRemaining FROM Win32_Battery


Specy reports the battery data like this in the Operating System section:


AC line Online

Battery full time Unknown

Battery Charge % 100 %

Battery State High

Amount of time remaining (sec) Unknown


It should be a simple matter to incorporate the WMI Query into Speccy. Hope this info helps.
