Charging while playing is not an issue, laptops have sophisticated charging circuits. However have a laptop permanently plugged in and the battery kept at 100% does reduce battery life. Some laptops have the option so the battery only charges up to 60-80% and stops to prolong battery life.

The dilemma im facing is that the original battery of my unit has defected and i brought it to the service center and they replace the battery. On the original battery i used my unit while gaming. now im not sure if the original battery broke because i used my laptop while gaming or it just a factory defect, my laptop is 1 month old anyway

I use my laptop for at least 2 years plugged in all the time and i play at least 2 hours of continuous gaming daily, the laptop is on daily for at least 12 hours and the battery still gives 4 hours standby which was roughly 4 hours 30 mins when i bought.

MERGED QUESTION
Question from glenmart123 : "Charging while gaming?"

Hi guys, i just want to ask something hope someone can help me. So i have this acer aspire e 14 notebook for almost a month and last last week it shown problem to its battery, it's not increasing the percentage even it is plugged in and before that im using it while im playing gaming while it is plugged in and charging. So i brought it to ACER service center for repairs because it is still under the warranty. Now that i recieved my repaired laptop and they changed the battery, Is it ok to use it while gaming again? Im not sure if the battery broke because im using it while charging or the battery is just faulty before i bought it. I hope someone can help me thanks in advance. :D

I'm also playing games on my laptop and every time plugged in and charging and never got any issue with my laptop. I think its not an issue about playing gaming while it is plugged in and charging.
