    I know it's normal, but just wondering about it,

    whenever my macbook reachs 99% on the battery, the plug appears on the battery, the one that means it is done charging, yet the charger light is still orange and it only says 99%.

    so can you unplug it in this state?

    You may want to re-calibrate your battery. I know that the batteries sometimes tend to stop charging at 99% more frequently when they need re-calibrated, but I've never really heard of the light staying constantly orange. In any case, you should still be ok to unplug the charger and use the battery anyways. So yeah haha, I might re-calibrate if I were you
