    battery drain while plugged in and gaming, normal?? asus rog scar strix 2

    hi everyone, im noticing small amount of battery drain while plugged in and gaming. I replaced the original 180w charger brick with a 230w and still drains. now with the original charger I was having major issues like when gaming the laptop was freezing in game and booting me back to the desktop and in some cases freezing then blue screen. anyways after I replaced the charger that seemed to stop, but the battery draining while gaming still seems to happen. my laptop is a strix scar 2 i7 8750h cpu 16gb of dual channel ram 2666 MHz, and a gtx 1060 6gb video card and a 17" screen. thanks everyone.Click image for larger version.

    It is normal if it doesn't go below 95%.

    thanks for the info. I don't think its a big deal its not like im gaming for 10 hours straight lol. I really like the laptop. it performs well. I already replaced the 180w power brick for a 230w brick that seemed to stop the in game freezing and blue screen problems.

    To prolong the battery life. Keeping the battery at 100% charge at all times can damage it over time.

    ok cool thanks for letting me know. I just got through playing ww3 for like 15 or 20 minuts seemed to drain battery only 1% not bad. I think this is normal, what do you think? im using my 230w charger not the 180w which is garbage.

    Perfectly normal. Mine goes down to around 95% at times, since I got it a year ago. Right now it's sitting at 96% (plugged in, not charging) and I just booted up.
