    Did replacing the battery work? I'm currently having the same problem as you described. I don't want to put down the money for a new battery if it's something internal.

    Yes, replacing the battery did correct the poorly calculated time(s) remaining to charge/discharge.

    Not sure how big a part this played but I had Fast Startup enabled when I installed the first battery. I disabled Fast Startup for the second battery - otherwise a small part of Windows kernel remains in RAM (not drivers tho). Imagine still best to have the PC completely shutdown when installing a new battery.

    Might add I did a clean install of Windows before installing new battery & Battery Usage Report still generating: The library, drive, or media is empty.
    & after the new battery as well. Must be something with my Latitude D630.​

    Your error, "Unable to perform operation. An unexpected error (0x10d2) has occurred: The library, drive, or media pool is empty.", is one that I also experience on one of my computers.
    - That same computer also lacks the ability to wake from sleep using Task scheduler despite the appropriate settings having been made.
    - Reinstallations of drivers or the OS make no difference.
    - Battery replacement makes no difference.

    I kept experimenting with these problems during the Windows 10 Preview period & eventually decided it was probably due to chipset incompatibilities.
    - The computer is from 2005 so I just accept its limitations.
    - A computer from 2010 had the same limitations with a few early Preview builds but has been OK since then.

    In practice, the lack of battery reports has not been a particular hindrance because I have used energy reports instead just as you do.
    - My routine use of such reporting is merely to compare current 'Full charge capacity' to its 'Design capacity' as a measure of battery health.

    I would not expect you to be able to fix this problem unless you installed fully compatible drivers for whatever hardware is causing the problem. Online discussions in about 2014 blamed the chipset drivers but I never saw any proof of that or even any logical argument that justified that as the conclusion.

    Best of luck,

    Seems that on machines capable of supporting more than one battery, but only one installed, there may be an issue. Until recently a battery report was generated for the first of the batteries, but in the current 1909 build that seems to have changed to being the last listed battery - which if not present can result in a blank report. I found this out the hard way, and found a workaround here:

    To account for weirdos who have usernames that aren't one word, I would suggest encasing this in quotes. Otherwise, "Invalid Parameters" will result. Adding the quotes won't interfere with those who have a normal username.

    hi guys,

    my /batteryreport is stuck on 79 cycles while 3rd party app "Batterycare" counts properly. any thoughts?

    my other Asus laptop counts fine, and they are aligned on same count (i have batterycare there too).

    I've never found that cycle count reliable on any computer.

    I always been forced to regard the ratio Full charge capacity / Design capacity as my measure of battery health/usage.

    All the best,
