    Hey guys. My battery meter in the top right corner keeps switching from Charged to Calculating. When I click on it, it shows a 99% charge. I've had my macbook plugged in for over an hour. Is this something I should be concerned about? Either way, the fact that it keeps switching back and forth is pretty annoying. Also, I've yet to calibrate my battery since I've bought the laptop, could this be the cause of the problem? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I'd try to calibrate the battery and see what happens.

    The flipping back and forth is a little bit weird...definitely calibrate your battery. Hopefully that will take care of the problem, but it's something you should do monthly anyway. Also note that if you plug in your computer when the battery is at 95% or higher, it won't charge it any more than that...it's to prevent overcharging of the battery. So that's why it won't always go all the way up to 100%.
