How can I tell when a USB port on my HP laptop is charging something?

I have a Ring battery that needs to be charged from a USB port.  When I plug it in to a USB port on my laptop, it lights up, but never seems to get charged.  This works for charging my cell phone.  How can I tell whether it is actually charging the battery?  There should be some way to check activity on my USB ports, but I've gone through several pages of stuff without finding it.  Can you tell me how to find out whether my laptop's USB port is actually charging this battery?

If your cell phone is charging then the port is putting out power.
