    Does anyone else have this problem? Its been charging for the past 3-4 hours and its still stuck at 98% and wont charge to 100%. This has been happening more and more lately. My mbp is only about 1 month old.
    Also is it good for your battery health to keep it charging? I heard its better because it puts less cycles on it. Thanks guys.

    Just noticed something similar on my MBP too, although mine seems to be indicating a full charge - at 99%. Not too worried about it though. :eek:

    Just had this issue on my week-old-MBP. Battery calibration did the trick. Run the battery down, once drained, leave for 5 or so hours - then charge until full.

    Solved the issue for me :D

    my 13" MBP battery health is currently at 92% after 9 cycles. Did a battery calibration but didn't help. I will try again tonight
