MSI Katana GF66 (i7 11800h, RTX 3060 144hz) dropping from 60% to 8% battery in an instant (a few seconds)?

Has anyone have an issue with the laptop like that? While doing productivity work, my laptop only lasted 30 minutes without plugging in (at full charge)

Download HWmonitor and check the WEAR LEVEL of your battery, if less than 40% do a battery calibration and EC RESET if required.
If more than 40%, your battery needs replacement, if under warranty return laptop, if not, order a replacement and do battery calibration every 2-3 months until replacement required.
You can always do CTRL+ALT+DEL to open task manager and see the programs that use a lot of resources, of course, screen should be @ 50% or less.
You can also change CPU usage to 99% in power plan to disable TURBO, in battery mode.
