Dell 7577 Laptop Battery wear extremely high and rapidly increasing

 Hi, my 2 weeks  old Dell 7577 Laptop  55mWh battery capacity reduced to 48mWH  and reducing day by day.

 Batteries just deteriorate over time, which is true but not at such a high rate.(only 2 weeks) I checked capacity level from Bios, Dell Support App and Windows BatteryReport. All of them tell same numbers. (not using third party apps)

So, , I'll probably have less than half the capacity in a few WEEKS, which is awful given how much I rely on the portability of this laptop. If anyone could give me any guidance or help I'd be thankful.

Re: Dell 7577 Laptop Battery wear extremely high and rapidly increasing

Same story here, 7 weeks old, rarely used, at 48.2Wh (86.1%).

Everywhere set to "save battery" settings (Win10, BIOS, Debian9) and mostly used via power cord.

Hope that's not the reason for the aggressive price strategy ?

My 2nd Dell Laptop, extremely surprised by the first I bought (2004, Inspiron 9100, still alive with Debian9). Hope this one is in the same quality range ?

Bought mine in December. Came with not working card reader. Today the battery just died. Laptop dies instantly if unplugged. What a waste of money. 4 months of occasional usage and the laptop might as well be a pc.
