    just received my MBA and istat nano widget says that my battery life is only at 98%

    despite 1 full charge (but not fully discharged yet), it's still stuck at 98% (6574 mAh)


    anything i could do to have it up to 100% ?

    thanks

    will it slowly reach 100% after some charges ?

    should i fully discharge it several times ?

    Its fine, dont worry about it. You dont need to do anything. Even though it doesnt say its at 100%, its at full charge.

    It is normal
    The readings are estimates and not precise

    You can try calibrating, etc. but you will never get an absolutely precise reading

    Your best bet is to avoid looking and obsessing with battery cycles, etc
    And just enjoy your computer
