    My 12" PowerBook will only charge up to 98% even after being plugged into the wall over night. Am I doing something wrong?

    there was a post on this already, it's something apple does to make your battery last longer.

    Sorry, I didn't know about the other thread. :) Can you give me a link to that thread or explain to me how showing a full charge @ 98% helps battery life?

    Edit: I swear, 1 second after I post this, I see jelloshotsrule gives the link. :rolleyes: Thanks.

    it's cool. happens all the time.

    hope that helps...

    basically, it seems it's just a measure that allows the battery to retain its life longer. don't ask me how. :)
