    Hi all,

    Got my MBA this afternoon and although I only had a small window to check it out, I am already in love with it.

    I thought it might be worth starting a battery life tips and tricks thread. Forgive me if it's already been done, I did a quick search and didn't see anything.

    Cheers,

    An :apple: newb

    I've noticed that if I leave the power cord in for a bit after it is fully charged, iStat will give me a higher health percentage after a charge.

    I've noticed that mine has stopped at 98% charge (it has been like that all day). Is that normal?

    Have not done a calibration yet, but am going to be asap.

    Yes, it's normal. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ
