    Do you cycle the battery a lot? Since I've been running plugged in for the most part for a year now with about 10% wear level/lost capacity.

    If you game on battery or do anything power intensive that drains the battery quickly, it can also exacerbate battery wear.

    If your battery reaches 50% battery wear within the warranty period that might be considered faulty but don't quite me on that.

    It seems like it goes up if your discharging the battery right down. I changed my battery warnings to go critical at 40% so I don't run it down.
