With Windows 10 running both on computers and on phones, we’re seeing a lot more “mobile aware” applications running in Windows 10. Case in point: the battery management applications, hidden within Settings >System > Battery saver.
Yes, there is a battery saver mode, but that’s not the most useful tool. And no, it’s not the hidden battery meter (with an estimated time to battery rundown), either—the first app I thought of when writing this piece, incidentally. The only reason I can think that Microsoft hid it in the Settings menu is that it doesn’t actually work—it spent five minutes trying to calculate my remaining battery life before I gave up.
No, I like the breakdown of battery use by apps and device. Not only can you see what really sucks down power in your system (the display, by and large), but it’s an insightful look into which apps are battery hogs, too.
