This is most likely due to your Power settings, when not charging laptops are normally set to lower performance to save battery drain. Go into your power management settings in Windows and set it to performance when unplugged, and it should fix your issue.

My problem is actually the opposite, it only works perfectly with zero lag when unplugged, yet freezes at points when plugged in. I don't understand it but have some theories. Is it due to powersaving being on when unplugged as it reduces background processing, but then that makes no sense as it still lags even with battery saving mode.

Sudden framerate drops usually occur due to CPU thermal throttling, which usually happens when the CPU is working @ max speed and voltage, which usually happens when you plug the external power source (laptop switches from power saving mode to performance mode)
