Battery Stops Charging at 95%. Any way to enable continuous charge?

Recently got an ASUS ROG GL552VW-DH71 gaming laptop, and while it works spectacularly, I have one big issue. When the battery reaches 95%, it stops charging. I don't need to know the "why" of this situation, I recognize that it's generally better for the battery when it isn't constantly charging like that.

In normal situations, I wouldn't really care. The problem is that I use it for gaming a lot. Laptop batteries, even those in gaming laptops, are somewhat infamous for not being powerful enough to run games on battery power alone, and this is no exception. Once the charger stops supplying power, I pretty consistently get drops of 20-30 fps every 10 seconds or so. This makes it extremely difficult to properly play against other people with any degree of success, and in singleplayer games it's just plain annoying. Is there any way to force a constant charge?



Thanks in advance

"Once the charger stops supplying power, I pretty consistently get drops of 20-30 fps every 10 seconds or so."
I'd say this is only indirectly related to the stopping of battery charging. Check power settings in Windows or ASUS/ROG software if you have any. I cannot specify because I never used a ROG myself.
A friend of mine has an Asus ROG and he uses it without a battery without an issue. Also, I guess not many people know this, but ROGs are built pretty badly actually, so it wouldn't surprise me if it was a production error of some kind.
Another thing... " infamous for not being powerful enough to run games on battery power alone" It still draws power from the charger when it reaches 95%, it just isn't charging the battery anymore.
And probably your best bet: post on ASUS/ROG forums, you have a really high chance of getting an ASUS/ROG expert replying to you.

Some laptops can be configured to not charge to 100%. This is typical. 95-100% battery life is considered a full charge. Something to do with making the battery last longer.
Also, Laptop battery contain cells, typically six. Each cell hold a certain amount of charge. Together they provide correct voltage and amperage for pc. Some cells “weaken” over time and take longer to charge. The charging circuit stops the process when the strongest cell reaches capacity. This is why you see a non 100 percent yet it says fully charged. Sometimes you can remedy this by completely draining battery and charging
Note: Intel-based computers may stop charging between 93 and 99 percent.
Resolution
This is normal. The batteries used in these computers are designed to avoid short discharge/charge cycles in order to prolong the overall life of the battery.
To allow the adapter to recharge the battery to 100%, simply allow the charge to drop below 93%. The adapter will automatically recharge the battery to 100%.
