When it says Plugged In, Not Charging, what is your battery percentage at?

around 95% a friend told me it's a windows issue so i may have got this wrong, Weird thing is sometimes it does charge over 95 and sometimes it doesn't i guess it's a bug? First time i've encountered this and i had Windows 10 on my old laptop

Surprisingly, it's not a bug.

 

Without going into the details of Lithium Polymer batteries, they don't like to be overcharged, and actually deteriorate in lifespan if kept at 100%. The charging circuits are designed to charge upwards of 95%, but they don't charge the full way.

 

The end result will be a much longer lifespan of the internal cell luckily. And honestly, you probably won't see any difference between 95% and 100% charge.

 

I would raise an issue though if you start seeing it not charging in the high 80s.

 

Hope that helps!

Ah this seems to be it! I feel stupid, It's charging when it drops under 95, Weird how you can't manually force it to 100 for trips and stuff though as it won't charge when it's off but still plugged in, But thanks for the help! :)
