  • Hi,

    Have you checked it out in website of your PC's make?
    Some makers provide tools/utilities for calibrating battery.

  • There is no calibration of the internal CMOS battery.  It is either good or it is bad.  No in between.  If it's bad, you replace the battery.

    I think the OP must be referring to a laptop battery, not the CMOS one.

  • You have a point, but I am not aware of a method to calibrate a laptop battery either.

    Ordinarily to recalibrate a battery:

    1. The power is connected until the charge reads 100% and stays connected for another two hours at 100%.

    2. The power is disconnected and the battery is allowed to drain completely. Don’t undertake any critical work at this time.

    3. Leave the computer for at least five hours, overnight is best.

    4. Connect the power adapter and fully charge it. The battery is now fully calibrated, and the internal battery processor will deliver accurate battery time remaining estimates.

    However, this procedure does vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

  • Thanks, BurlWalnut.

    I have seen the procedure as you list it, but I don't recall it being noted as "recalibrate."  Can't remember for sure, but I had always seen it as renewing, or something along those lines.  Seems I learn something new everyday!
