    I recently bought this laptop with the gtx 1080, 7820hk, 32gb ram, and I notice that while gaming for long periods my laptop starts draining even though its plugged in. Can you guys please tell me if this also happens to you? Im currently undervolted to -160, 3.8ghz. So I dont think thats the problem. While googling I found this:

    Acer claims that the laptop is design to run on battery even when plugged in, and when it hits 30% it uses ac power again. I just want to know if this happens to anyone else? with the same specs

    Wow - this is the most ridiculous spin on things I've seen. Apparently an underpowered PSU is now a feature.
    I'm afraid you won't be able to do anything about it as this laptop simply draws more power than the PSU provides, unless you replace the PSU that is.
