Powerbook G4 battery

Message #1 - Posted 2004/05/18 - Jonathan Johnson

PS

The battery indicator never reads 100% but usually indicates anything between 96-99%. Even when fully charged.

Stuffed if I know.

try to use your battery around 5% left and then charge it.
i think you need to calibration.

Or, you should try to bring your barrery down to 0% (really 0, until screen turns dark and you're not able to bring it back by using the mouse and a key) and then fully recharge.

Could work, too...

Good luck!
