A user’s laptop load has exceeded 100% due to a Windows 11 issue

After upgrading to Windows 11 on your laptop, it looks that you may experience some unusual battery issues. One Reddit user’s Windows 11 laptop has finally crossed the 100 percent battery mark, setting a new milestone for laptops worldwide. Rejoice, because we now live in a period of hypercharged technology—a moment of… limitless power.

Of course its a bug, not a feature. There’s no word on what model laptop the user has, either, but the user did let me know they were using OS build 22483.1000. Either way, it’s a darn site different to the usual complaints we see saturating the web around Windows 11 bugs, especially when it comes to battery life.

Zondax’s first post came after they spotted this in their system tray’s battery tooltip, while playing a humble game of Old School Runescape: “Battery status: fully charged 103%” A couple of hours later, OP added an updated screenshot that shows it reaching 104%. Commenters are calling it “Firestarter Edition,” and warning OP to back away slowly, since they may have accidentally created a bomb.

The majority cite issues such as batteries refusing to charge beyond a certain level, exhibiting a massive dip in battery life, or refusing to show how much battery has been used since upgrading to Windows 11. A lot of people suggest a clean ISO install is the way forward if you’re experiencing bugs like these, as opposed to the upgrade option which can sometimes cause problems.

Hopefully the issue with Zondax’s laptop was nothing more than a bad read on the battery life, but the fact OP went silent after their second post was a bit worrying. Screw sports, Katie would rather watch Intel, AMD and Nvidia go at it. She can often be found admiring AI advancements, sighing over semiconductors, or gawping at the latest GPU upgrades. She’s been obsessed with computers and graphics since she was small, and took Game Art and Design up to Masters level at uni. Her thirst for absurd Raspberry Pi projects will never be sated, and she will stop at nothing to spread internet safety awareness—down with the hackers.
