The laptop does not switch to AC mode after fully charging. I dualboot and this problem is nonexistent on Windows 10. But on Ubuntu 15.10 it just keeps discharging.
Problem persists on Ubuntu 16.04 variants as well.
I tried fully charging(which never actually happens as ubuntu always keeps showing discharging but I charged it upto as high as possible) and then discharging to 0 and fully charging again. But it just does not work.
This cant be good for the battery, Please help.

I have tried removing TLP and using a fresh installation but still no luck, I hope my continued usge in this condition isn't killing the battery.
