Latest Macbook Air battery issue

Hi All,

I have the latest 13 inch Macbook Air running 10.7.2.

Just last night I discovered that my battery is always charging and it stayed at 51% charged.

Don't know what's going on here but I'll let it run down once more and charge again and see if that changes.

Any ideas here guys?

Thanks much!

Reset the SMC. Launch Activity Monitor and change "My Processes" at the top to "All Processes". Then look to see what may be consuming system resources. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

Thanks for the tip! Unfortunately that doesn't seem to solve the problem.

I don't think my battery is charging up at all. Perhaps it's time to bring it in to the Genius store.

If that didn't help, it does sound like a trip to the store.
