Re: battery

Is this issue solved if you replace the battery by a new one? If not, replace the motherboard.

A tool I use just to check battery life.

You left out the full model and age. It's possible to have a worn out battery in under 2 years so there's that.

Go get BATTERYBAR (the free one) and see what it reports.

Replace battery

Batteries are referred to as a consumable item as they tend to die there are programs you can install to give you a better idea of the health of your battery but ultimately how long your battery lasts depends on its age, usage, and charging habits eg I used to keep my laptop on charge constantly and was chaning my battery all the time as it wouldnt hold its charge until the man in the shop told me it's the worst thing to do

Opposite story.

Here at the office we have laptops that at 5 years sitting on the desks plugged in were replaced.

Laptop 1 had about 80% capacity after 5 years being plugged in.
Laptop 2 had about 94% capacity after 5 years plugged in.

Another person was using their battery during the day and charging it up at night. Their battery barely made it over a year.

This seems to align well with what you read at sites like batteryuniversity. Just plug in when you can and save actual battery use for when you have to use it.
