    Hello -

    I've noticed that my battery charges until "99%", as well as turning the adapter light to green. I can't remember it ever going to "100%".

    Is there any good reason for this?

    Should I drain the battery for recalibration?

    Are there any programs to recalibrate the battery?

    Is this normal??

    Thanks
    N.

    Don't need any additional software. Just discharge it completely and recharge it. Recalibration done.

    yup, mine has never made it ot 100% either, which is quite depressing for the battery (so it says)

    Yeah it' normal...it'll eventually run down to 95% before recharging again.
