    When your battery hits 100% it stops charging. The reason, why your performance drops when not charging, is to save your battery from damage, caused by very quick discharge. If the laptop used 100% performance, while on battery power, your battery life will be about twice less.

    Keeping thr laptop plugged in all the time isn't harmful to your battery.
    If your question is about a device you own or want information on, always post the following characterisitcs of the device:
    -Model number
    -Part number(not required, but helpful)
    -CPU
    -GPU
    -Operating system

    I am not an Acer employee!

    Thanks for clarifying this. I have been seeing different theories online as to how 'discharging' is important even though it decreases the lifecycle (Charge Cycles if you may). I was in a dilemma. And now i always keep my laptop plugged in instead of occasionally plugging out the AC plug to drain battery on purpose.
