My battery says that it is fully charged on my Al15" pb, but the percentage is only 99%.

Is this happening to anybody else?

the albook batteries only charge if they drop below 95%. Otherwise they just trickle charge so they don't overheat. It should charge all the way up to 100% if you let it drop below 95%.

btw, my 12" Albook battery charges up to 100%, but then always drops down to 99% even when still plugged in. :-/

recalibrate the battery every 2-3 weeks or so. unplug from current, let it run to 0 %, recharge. keeps it more accurate.
