Hi all,

Got my MBA this afternoon and although I only had a small window to check it out, I am already in love with it.

I thought it might be worth starting a battery life tips and tricks thread. Forgive me if it's already been done, I did a quick search and didn't see anything.

Cheers,

An :apple: newb

Having some learning curves with my first Mac, but we'll get there. All the help is appreciated.

I've noticed that if I leave the power cord in for a bit after it is fully charged, iStat will give me a higher health percentage after a charge.

I've noticed that mine has stopped at 98% charge (it has been like that all day). Is that normal?

Have not done a calibration yet, but am going to be asap.

Yes, it's normal. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ (http://forums.macrumors.com/showpost.php?p=9875442&postcount=23)
