Sounds more like a hardware problem rather than software ;-)

Try to disable nvidia graphics chip to increase battery life.

"windows" would also disable the graphics chip when it's not in use ;-)

Re: Battery always charging icon!

You still are in the software section.

There is nothing wrong with the battery charging icon itself ;-)

Maybe try the notebook section instead with a better description of your problem?
