Acer Nitro 5 question about power supply

MichelKesinMichelKesin Member Posts: 2 New User

So I recently got a Nitro 5 for college. I was wondering if using the laptop while it’s charging draws power from the battery or if it uses AC power exclusively as long as it detects it’s plugged in. My old laptop took power from my battery which killed the health and resulted in me disconnecting the battery to play games. Do I need to be concerned about using the N5 heavily while it’s charging?

    It pulls from AC when possible, but dips into the battery to add extra juice when needed
