Guys, I just encountered this problem that my laptop which is HP Envy - 13-ad160tx when charging it got stuck only at 70%. I already updated the bios, run the diagnostic test and its all good, I ran also windows update just to make sure I get the updated drivers. But still im stuck at 70%.. When I am using my AC adapter it only shows the percentage and it doesnt even says thats its charging but only PLUGGED IN..
You can check the battery to some extent using Powershell built into Windows 10. as follows: 1) Press Windows key + X 2) Click Powershell in the menu 3) Type powercfg /batteryreport
This will generate a report and if you scroll down, you will see Design Capacity and Full Charge Capacity ratings. If the Full Charge Capacity is less than 50% of the Design Capacity, it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
Also note the figure alongside the "Cycle Count". This tells how many times the battery has been fully recharged. A typical battery can handle around 500 charge cycles, but some will fail sooner than that.
