charging XP reports it as 67% charged. Same in Ubuntu where
/proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/info (I think that is the correct path) gives
3400mAh when charging stops, compared with a max capacity of 5100mAh (the
unit is rated at 4400mAh).
This suggests to me that the unit has deteriorated in storage and has less
than a year's life left in it.
Am I missing anything or should I be sending it back ASAP?
