In my opinion, it's seems FINE. But let me explain:
- the battery indicator result is made by different approximations on voltage, power (Ampers) and change between this two things in time.
- for some cases, it's ok that high power draw delivers such results, as software and hardware tries to delicately provide enough power via battery.
Example: it shows 75%, but when you disconnect PSU you will propably see that power draw won't remain the same, it will draw available power from battery with slower rate.
It's not fine at all.
With Intel Core i7 8750H, Nvidia GTX 1060 and 16GB DDR4 you can play any game with High/Ultra settings in high resolutions and very good FPS values.
That leads to a significant demand from the PSU (power adapter in this case).
Even so, if I play GTA5 (for example) and I start with the battery at 80%, it will be fully charged after 30 minutes of playing.
So if his power adapter is OK, there is something wrong with the laptop (battery charging circuit).
Couple of quick questions for those in the know, still monitoring the issue on my GL703Gm.
Running Aida 64 to monitor power management, power state show "AC Line, Discharging" - Is this a normal Power State? Tried searching for an answer without any luck,
While running Counterstrike and while game arena being loaded Aida64 shows that a discharge from the battery occurs momentarily - Is this normal? I would have thought the power supply would have been able to handle the extra draw.
Could this be a conflict between graphics card driver and battery driver, something a friend said here who's a little more knowledgeable in these things than I.
Any help or comments appreciated.
Update from me. Didn't make it to the shop but decided to try a battery calibration. Charged battery to 100%, let computer run for a couple of hours at 100% then unplugged computer from adapter ran computer until it shut down by itself. Left computer off overnight. Plugged it in this morning and charged to 100%, ran full day doing work at 100%. Just spent last 2.5 hours playing counterstrike with no signs of battery discharge. Guess next step is to see if computer will run in the same manner if I set it for the 60% prolonged life option.
If you haven't done a battery calibration might be worth a try.
