    So I just received my new Dell XPS 9570 and decided to check on battery performance and ran a battery report. I noticed that my battery is not even charging up to the full design capacity (97003 Design Capacity vs 87438 Full Charge Capacity). Its a brand new battery. Any insight on this? Anyone else with the new Dell XPS 9570 having the same issue?

    Both HWInfo and Throttlestop shows my battery on a full charge as 87348 also. Could be battery wear although it's new. Maybe a calibration might fix it.

    Both my batteries (new and replacement) say 87Wh as well. I wonder if this is by design, or marketing fluff about a 97whr?

    What problems did your first unit have?

    Just the battery. I had it serviced.
