This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes.

Indicates the amount of time, in seconds, that remains until the battery is fully discharged.

Even if the time returned is precise to the second, browsers round them to a higher interval (typically to the closest 15 minutes) for privacy reasons.

Syntax

var time = battery.dischargingTime

On return, time is the remaining time in seconds until the battery, which is a BatteryManager object, is fully discharged and the system will suspend. This value is Infinity if the battery is currently charging rather than discharging, or if the system is unable to report the remaining discharging time.
