    Wow thanks for that "wear level" term. I just checked mine using HWMonitor and wear level is already 4%. Hmm... Is it probably dell's desktop mode working to prevent it from full charging?

    first of all, HWMonitor rounds numbers up, it will report 3.1 as 4, second thing is i found that the whole desktop mode thing does diddly squat, but i enabled it just to be safe, didn't see any performance drops with it enabled so i kept it on..
