    Exclamation MBP charge completely
    I have a MacBook Pro and I have it plugged in and the percentage says it's only 99% and it says charged. Is there a problem with my battery?

    I've seen this happen on my MBP. In my case, the fix was to run the battery all the way down, then charge it back to full.

    Just let your battery charge drop lower than 94% and then connect up the charger. Then you will see 100% after it is fully charged.

    I second this! I have my MacBook Pro plugged in almost 100% of the time...and I can (over the course of a couple weeks) my battery charge go from 100% > 99% > 98% > 97% > 96%...then at some point (95% or 94%) the battery charging will begin...ending when it hits 100%.

    Then the process starts over again (over the course of weeks while plugged in). Right now my battery charge is currently at 98% (not light on Magsafe connector).
