    Is there a reason you think something is wrong with your battery?

    When was the last time, if ever, you calibrated your battery?

    Edit: In light of your post at the same time as mine, I would calibrate.

    dosn't look like there's anything wrong with it, 88% at over 200 cycles doesn't sound too bad. Are there any symptoms like random shutdowns?

    It looks fine to me. the top is the current charge. It should charge back up if you plug it in.

    okay, I just got the app that joe was using and it said that my battery was at 46% of its original capacity. I also am worried of using it because my laptop seems to lock up when it is on the battery for too long. it is also at 97% capacity but not charging. should I just not worry and keep it plugged in and enjoy until I can get a new battery down the road?

    It won't charge unless you drop below 94%, it lessens the strain on the battery.
