Dell Inspiron Battery Critical, Then 50% When Plugged In

I have a Dell Inspiron 7386 2-in-1 I7386-7007BLK-PUS. Ever since purchase, if the battery falls below 50-60% and I close the lid, I reopen to a battery critical warning and it self-shuts down after a little bit. If I plug in during that message, the percentage goes from 1% to 50-60%. I've ran Dell's and other third party diagnostics and no issues have been found. I have the current firmware. I know there are other threads about this but now cannot find them so apologize in advance for a duplicate. Any ideas?

I had the same problem.

Bios 1.7.1 was released today and am currently testing it. So far,  it seems that it is fixed.

Would you mind checking this and report?

Update on this issue: The issue still persists 1.5 yrs later. Was up to BIOS 1.9.0 with the issue still present. Updating to 1.11.0 to see if it happens to resolve in this update.
