Battery - how to determin its health?

Is there a way of knowing how ‘healthy’ the librem 13 v3 battery is?

You can type
upower -d
in a terminal. The output looks something like:

  native-path:          BAT
  vendor:               TPS
  model:                S10
  power supply:         yes

  has history:          yes
  has statistics:       yes
    present:             yes
    rechargeable:        yes
    state:               fully-charged
    warning-level:       none
    energy:              44.5258 Wh
    energy-empty:        0 Wh
    energy-full:         44.8662 Wh
    energy-full-design:  44.696 Wh
    energy-rate:         6.29 W
    voltage:             8.331 V
    percentage:          100%
    capacity:            100%

“Capacity” is what you are looking for. Also “energy-full” tells you your current max Wh.


OK, that’s helpful
