    All this talk about battery at 100% plugged in then checking again and its a 95 or so percent! Well mine does the same thing, BUT have you noticed when looking at the battery Icon when charging you get the little lightning symbol in the battery! OK look again when it goes under 100% while plugged in there is a picture of a plug where the lightning bolt usually is?

    Seems to be maybe 2 charging modes or something going on?

    As I understand it, the lightning bolt signifies charging and the plug signifies charged.

    If thats true then---that explains why people are seeing there battery go down in percentage cause it has stopped charging! Guess a feature to prevet overcharging which is good. I find if you unplug and plug back up it will start charging again

    I do not think the battery continues to trickle charge after it is fully charged. i think it stops charging until the battery runs down a bit and then kicks in again.:apple:

    Sometimes when I use it it drops to 100% but it has the lightning symbol instead of the plug
