What is Laptop Battery?

A laptop battery is a small, rechargeable energy source that powers the computer when it’s not plugged in.

When the battery runs low, you may see a message on the computer screen telling you to charge the battery. You can also try restarting the computer. If these methods don’t work, you may need to replace the battery.
