On my Asus UX305 laptop I notice that when the battery is at 100% and I let it drop to around 98% or 96% and plug in the adaptor again the battery tray icon says '96% available (plugged in, not charging'.

 

It remains like that indefinitely. So is this good in that I keep the battery well charged, without charging?

may not be low enough to require a charge at that point.  what if you let it drop less? like around 70%

Thanks for responding.

 

At 70% it will charge. But staying at 95, 96, 97, 98% it must be charging altho the charger is not warm and the tray message says 

'not charging' .

 

Perhaps it is actually trickle charging but doesn't indicate it. Altho it stays like that for at least an hour it never charges more or doesn't indicate so.
