    Because design capacity is the "original". Battery cells are designed to have a certain capacity, but due to variations in process, your cells may store more charge than spec.

    Imagine buying a glass cup for 8 oz. In reality it may be 8.1 oz or 8.06 oz, but they can only sell it as 8 oz because each cup is different.
