  • Laptop plugged but battery is being drained

    I let my laptop plugged all the time (Asus) but with option to optimize the battery life, it means, to not charge the battery while plugged. It is set for best performance (instead of best battery life) when plugged power mode. But even though, when I connect my phone to transfer data or to charge the phone, or when I play heavy games, it drains the laptop battery (and charges the phone). My computer is new and I have never used without being plugged. And sometimes it charges 1%. I don't know why, but I am paranoid about this because I only use plugged to make sure to save the battery life for strictly necessary cases.
