    NHC sayz my battery wear level is 16% :eek: and my V6J is only one month old. Is that normal?:confused: I've done a recalibration and it still shows up as 16%. Is there a way to bring it down to 0?

    NHC is getting some wrong numbers bro, but i have heard that calibrating increases wear... but i dunno, this is one thing im gonna be puzzled about when i get my laptop.. is battery wear ?? =\

    try recalibrate? also drain battery then charge to full, turn ur laptop off and then get another reading, also test if your batterylife decreased from the day of purchased? by 16%?

    So for example right when you get ur laptop you should bench ur laptop, and see how much batterylife you get and 3dmark05, tthen after every now and then keep testing to see how effecient your laptop is..

    So check out all of that.

    Thanks,

    You can download Mobilemeter (google for it).

    However, I've found that Mobilemeter generally agrees with NHC; I think they use the same protocol to communicate with the battery. My wear level is 13% after 4 months of use; it really went up early on, but has held steady for the past several months.

    Yep, Mobilemeter agrees with NHC. Battery wear is still 16% :confused:

    Is a 16% battery wear normal for a less than a month old notebook?

    Take the battery out, blow or wipe the contacts, then put it back in, see if that changes anything

    Are you running NHC along with PowaGear?

    The wear level of my 2 year old Asus M6700N (Centrino with Banias) was only something about 10%. After load and unload the accu several times the wear level sank to 7%.

    Why are yours so high?

    In German a battery that can be load for several times is called Accu (Akkumulator).

    I hope you're not rolling on the floor laughing when you read my postings :D,
    I haven't written anything in English for more then 5 years :eek: !
