I got an Acer for more than 5 years now and for the last 2years(following a format of the Acer OS) the battery(AS10D51 Li-ion) is drained within 5minutes of idle use.
Now the strange part is that i installed Linux a year back and it didn't show a faulty battery(like my win7 do) and it lasted more than an hour when i unplugged it with normal use.
For those who want to say "Use Linux" i am a bit of a gamer and lazy so i would have a real hard time with Linux.
I tried the powercfg to see my battery charge and it was very low even though it's always plugged.
I tried emptying it(even 0% with some tweaking the windows power plan) and refilling it several times but it didn't work.
Any suggestions before replacing it?
Thank you!

The only reason i haven't bought a new one is the Linux fact.Is there a possibility this is a driver issue?

Also do you have a recomendation for a new battery?I'm from EU.
 
Battery is a consumable item, meaning it wears out over time. When a battery is worn, all bets are off, any reading is not to be trusted. This is weird for you but in reality is a well known symptom of worn battery.
