Laptop switches off after battery low without any warning.

i have acer aspire e5 551g and it just switches off without any prior warning when the battery is low.
I have to set my low battery warning at 26% to get the notification and critical battery is set to 18% but when it reaches 18%,it automatically shuts off ant turns on at 7% when plugged in.
pls help,I have windows 10(ver 1803) installed.

  • Hi,
    You could try a battery reset, switch off the laptop, disconnect from mains, follow the instructions in the video, leave the laptop to rest for a while before starting again.

  • It is possible that the battery is unbalanced and therefore the notebook suddenly shuts off by 18%!
    To calibrate the battery, you charge the battery up to 100% with the notebook off; after charging, leave the notebook off for two hours to cool the battery; do this, turn on the notebook and program the notebook to use the high-performance mode and also program so that the screen and the hard disk do not turn off; also program the critical battery level to 1% and the critical battery action to turn off; and low-battery action, put in nothing to do!
    Leave the notebook using only the battery power until it turns itself off!
