FPS drops when on battery

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP Laptop PC-15-ax00tx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When run on battery, my fps drops from 60-70 fps to 20-30 in Overwatch no matter in low or high graphic setting.

This happens only in battery mode. 

I just bought my laptop 3 days ago and since then I can't fix this problem.

I have tried changing battery option to high performance and uncheck "Battery Boost" in NVIDIA GeForce Experience menu but didn't work.

 

Also, I couldn't install BIOS update on HP Support Assistant. It keeps saying "Failed" after many attempts to install.

 

Here is my laptop's system info

Hi,

 

That is normal. Normally when on battery Windows will switch all video power off (or less) to save battery. Please try the following guide

So I have to keep plugging in all the time I play games?

If so, I'm worried about my battery life as the battery is not really detachable.
