Battery Devices Design Guide

Last Updated: 1/24/2017

A battery typically has a pair of drivers: the generic battery class driver that Microsoft provides, and a miniclass driver written specifically for that individual type of battery.

The class driver defines the overall functionality of the batteries in the system and interacts with the power manager.

This design guide focuses on Writing Battery Miniclass Drivers.

In addition this section includes information on Writing UPS Minidrivers that were used with older versions of Windows.
