    Do take a look at my current battery capacity.
    Find it weird? Yes i find it weird too, how can my current battery capacity be higher than the Original battery capacity?

    Anyway if you want to know how i keep it at 99-100% battery capacity
    1] Set brightness level to the lowest or most comfortable
    2] Turn off Bluetooth/Airport when not in use
    3] Try not to use the iSight camera too much
    4] Try to do activities that will decrease your battery life only when it's plugged in
    5] Put it to sleep instead of shutdown.
    6] Keep it plugged in as much as possible, it's okay to use 20-30% of the battery when you're in the bus or in places that has no power adapters. In fact, it makes the MBP healthier.


    Ill add more when i can think of more.
    Please add if you have any tips you would like to share

    Don't mean to be rude, but there are already several guides and about 500 other threads on battery capacity.

    What about this?

    It's normal, as a Mac does not always charge to the fullest.

    If you take the time to read the links I offered, you will learn more about your battery.

    No, as it never really is 100% accurate.

    I have an iBook with 4000mAh original capacity, and now it shows 12000mAh. That's when you should be worried, my iBook battery holds 30 minutes or so right now.
