Rapid battery wear

andwtcandwtc Posts: 4Member New User
I currently have a Swift 5 that was purchased in April 2019. I've noticed that there's very high battery wear over the past few months and currently there's wear of 29.2%, barely 5 months after purchase. I've not experienced this issue with any of my previous laptops. Could anyone share if this is a technical issue and I should take the laptop into the service center?

    Hi andwtc

    Could you please follow the instructions for manual calibration of the battery(somewhere in the middle of the page).
    https://www.howtogeek.com/172271/how-to-calibrate-your-laptops-battery-for-accurate-battery-life-estimates/

    Try reinstalling Microsoft ACPI-compliant control method battery driver, go to Device manager, expand Batteries, highlight and right click Microsoft ACPI-Compliant Control method battery, click Properties, go to Driver tab and uninstall the driver, reboot and let Windows install the driver.

    Thanks for the advice. I've recalibrated and reinstalled the driver. The battery wear has increased to 29.6%. I think this level of battery wear is not normal for just a few months?
