I have noticed that my battery is not charging to capacity. Using ACPI on linux kernel 2.4.22 my battery status output is something like: 2684mAh where as it should be closer to 4000mAh... i am curious what other people read their battery as at full charge. also is there a way to preserve/fix the battery if something is wrong with it? possibly hooking up a resistor (maybe a dc comp fan) to fully drain it. i have been running iwth the battery always in place and the comp almost continually plugged in. i have hear that this is best, am i mis-informed?
if you have the extended warranty will sager replace a dead battery? if soo... i might just wear mine into the ground ASAP
... spose that is enough questions for now.
