    I'm just wondering whether or not this is the norm... Rather than saying my battery is dropping a lot, it appears to be a freaking tank.

    Current Charge: 4275 mAh
    Max Charge: 4275 mAh
    Current Capacity: 4275 mAh
    Original Capacity: 4100 mAh

    Loadcycles: 52
    Age: 6 months

    So basically my current battery capacity is over 100% of the theoretical original capacity.

    I am not in the slightest complaining, but I'm curious if everyone else is absolutely thrilled with the health of their batteries thus far.

    It sounds like you've just broken it in a bit. Just remember to keep on cycling it. My battery is 2.5 yrs old, and i can still get 3-4, sometimes 5 hours of use out of it.

    dont know if they are tanks, but they do last a long ass time, which is cool.
