I have a MacBook Pro 2017 (non touchbar model).

The problem is it won't boot without connecting to a charger.
Without a charger it shows a question mark in folder blinking.
When I boot into recovery without charger, my ssd is not shown in disk utility.

However, when I connect to a charger, it boots normally and in recovery it shows my ssd in disk utility too.
When I remove the charger after it boots normally, it works perfectly.

I have reinstalled my Mac OS and I did SMC & NVRAM reset and it won't solve the problem.
Also my battery cycle is only 110.

Do you think it is a ssd problem? or Battery problem? Any guesses?

    Maybe you could start by posting pmset -g live ; pmset -g custom ; pmset -g ps in order to get a better idea? Nov 15, 2022 at 2:00

    Should I just put those commands in terminal?
