Hello I've been hearing a lot of rumors around the internet about laptop batteries. I have a Lenovo y50 that I use for moderate gaming. Whenever its unplugged I get very low fps. For example I get 30 fps in minecraft while I usually get 200 - 300 fps.I always keep my charger plugged in because of this. I heard that doing this will cause the battery life to become worse.Does keeping it plugged in even when my battery is 100% be bad for my battery? Also is there anything I can do about the fps problem?
The charger should drop back to a maintenance trickle, if that, once the battery is charged. Make sure the battery is not hot.
As to the performance, check your power settings. It is probably set to lower performance when running on battery. You can change this, although you may drastically shorten battery life.
I changed it to max performance. I see no change in frame rate. All I notice is that the brightness and sleep time is higher. The frame rate is locked at 30fps. I tried using max to lowest settings and everything is at 30fps compared to the 200 fps I usually get.
