Battery stops charging at 98%

My Macbook air battery charges up to 100% according to the menu bar, but when I open up Coconutbattery or iStats, they both say its still at 98%. Any ideas why? Also, the battery indicator on Coconutbattery and iStats has to drop down all the way to 93% before the battery indicator on the menu bar even goes down to 99%.

It's normal that your battery may stop charging between 93-99%. For details, read the CHARGING section of the following link. The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

Are you talking about the battery charge or the battery capacity?
