wait, i thought u only had 33% left, nvm
sometimes it shows 99%, but usually 100% capacity
seems like the batteries on them are good for quite some time
i don't has one to post, mac mini crew
10 months, 66%
can i get it replaced?
more than stock
New battery for me, right?
You've been letting it run dry, haven't you? Don't let lithium batteries drop below 10%, and don't keep them plugged in all the time either. They like the roller coaster effect that causes nickel batteries to wear out.
dont have mine with me at work but I will post mine when I get home its always plugged in and never unplugged for more than an hour if I do take it to the living room with me.
It's going shitty for me
21% after just 160 loadcycles? you must be cooking your battery to have lost that much capacity in 2 years.. or, it's defective but too late to do anything about it
actually 40% is preferred, best not to go lower than that if you can help it, but it gets worse the lower and the more frequently you go below 40.
Leaving a lithium battery plugged into the wall only damages the capacity if it's hooked up to a "dumb" charger. Any recent laptop doesn't use a "dumb" charger.
Haha uhm... Is this normal?
continuing with the mis-information, I see. It is *preferred* to leave a lithium-ion battery plugged into a smart-charger whenever possible.
If you have to unplug it, and lets say you use 10% capacity so now you're at 90% left, you're better-off reconnecting it than draining it more.
