    hi - got this little utility "capacity meter" for the battery of a 17" PB

    am a little worried that after 3 recharges the battery status is already down to

    92 %

    how come?

    or is a lower-than-100-%-capacity intentional?

    tks for any feedback -

    Do you mean it's holding 92% of its possible charge or do you mean it says it's total capacity is 92% of what it originally was? :)

    92 percent of what it originally was (of the original 5800 units).

    whereas it says battery capacity at 92 percent is still "excellent".

    anybody else with this utility and similar data?
