My laptop is slower when charging
It is fully noticeable when playing games like Dota 2

When on battery, it is smooth
When charging, it starts lagging but still playable

It is not noticeable when on desktop or watching movies or browsing the internet

Was that charger original? If not, you'd better make sure it's the one that powerful enough. Gaming laptop usually need more power than others. If your charger could not provide enough power, it will slow your performance. I think that you need a new battery for the computer or you need to buy a new original charger.

I am not absolutely sure that it is original, however I bought it at a computer shop (not a small one, a big computer shop) in a mall, so in my opinion it is likely an original charger.

 

I don't know if my charger provides enough power or not.

 

This laptop is probably not for gaming.

However it just ticks me off that when charged it's slower than not charged.

 

And at battery, Dota 2 is just smooth, very smooth.

Is your power profile set to a lower performance when plugged in than when on battery?

When on battery, Balanced
When charging, High Performance

It is automatic. It switches automatically to high performance when charging

Please post the Acer laptop model next time. Can you provide a screenshot of your power option features? Do you have Advanced Power settings?

You can google search power adapter model number to found out information about the power adapter this way you can determine if power adapter is or not original power adapter. What happens when you only connect power adapter without the battery is the issue still continues.
