Obsolete
This feature is obsolete. Although it may still work in some browsers, its use is discouraged since it could be removed at any time. Try to avoid using it.

The BatteryManager interface provides ways to get information about the system's battery charge level.

The navigator.getBattery() method returns a battery promise that is resolved in a BatteryManager interface which you can use to interact with the Battery Status API.

Properties

BatteryManager.charging Read only
A Boolean value indicating whether or not the battery is currently being charged.
BatteryManager.chargingTime Read only
A number representing the remaining time in seconds until the battery is fully charged, or 0 if the battery is already fully charged.
BatteryManager.dischargingTime Read only
A number representing the remaining time in seconds until the battery is completely discharged and the system will suspend.
BatteryManager.level Read only
A number representing the system's battery charge level scaled to a value between 0.0 and 1.0.

Event handlers

BatteryManager.onchargingchange
A handler for the chargingchange event; This event is sent when the battery charging state is updated.
BatteryManager.onchargingtimechange
A handler for the chargingtimechange event; This event is sent when the battery charging time is updated
BatteryManager.ondischargingtimechange
A handler for the dischargingtimechange event; This event is sent when the battery discharging time is updated.
BatteryManager.onlevelchange
A handler for the levelchange event; This event is sent when the battery level is updated.
