So you need like 100% battery on your G900 to use it on the XIM4. Recently I got a new laptop and have the mini-usb to use it wireless (I play with it wired on the XIM4). This means that when I'm off the PS4 I just unplug the USB connected from the XIM to the mouse so I can use it wireless..
The thing is that ofc I'm draining battery while using the laptop and now when I want to play on my PS4 i gotta wait until my mouse is fully charged..?
Is there any possible way to fix this, I find this pretty annoying.

If anything I said wasn't clear to understand I'll try to explain it better.

Try connecting the mouse to a powered USB 2.0 hub, then connect the hub to the Xim4.
It should take care of the power drain issue by charging the G900 when using the Xim.

Your G900 doesn't need to be fully charged to work with the XIM4.
I used to plug it into the XIM (via a USB switch) which itself was plugged into my PS4. The mouse battery charged from almost flat to fully charged in around 2 hours of gaming and would then run perfectly well for several days in wireless mode.
It sounds as though your laptop is not charging your mouse very efficiently. If I were you, I would buy a USB plug

and charge your G900 directly through the mains, when your console is turned off, rather than through your laptop.

Your experience with the battery may be different than others. Factors like console used and other peripheral's power requirements can play a role in the amount of trickle charge and the point where battery percentage can affect stability.
