Swift SF314-59 / 6 Months Old - Battery Life reduced Significantly - Full charge lasts 3-4 hours

I purchased the Swift SF314-59 laptop last year December 2021. While on the website it said the battery life is 13 hours, I have never got that life from a single charge. Recently my battery levels have gone down significantly. I charge 100 and the laptop drains out under 3-5 hours. Even if I charge my laptop 100% and shut it down when I start it again the next day the battery is already 50%-60% without any usage.
I ran the battery calibration and also reset it from the bottom pinhole but the conditions remain the same. The laptop heats pretty significantly.
Any solutions or acer laptop sucks in battery department

    Have you added any apps recently? There can often be big changes to battery life depending on what's running. What are you using for an antivirus? If it's not Windows Defender is it activated and current? IIRC yours came with a six month trial of Norton or McAfee...

    If you are using it for coding, then you have compilers and editors installed. Which ones? Are you working with VMs or is everything native?
