what's up with my battery?
Ok so Coconut Battery says my battery is only charging to 99% of it's current capacity. Eff that. What do I do?

The battery is only re-charged when it is below 94% (could be 96%, I forget which).
So, once you get below that, it will re-charge to 100%.

The battery is still in use, although minimally, while you are plugged into main power. It will drop in charge over time from 100% due to this and will not re-charge until it hits the above percentage.
