    You've been letting it run dry, haven't you? Don't let lithium batteries drop below 10%, and don't keep them plugged in all the time either. They like the roller coaster effect that causes nickel batteries to wear out.

    21% after just 160 loadcycles? :hs: you must be cooking your battery to have lost that much capacity in 2 years.. or, it's defective but too late to do anything about it :o

    actually 40% is preferred, best not to go lower than that if you can help it, but it gets worse the lower and the more frequently you go below 40.

    Leaving a lithium battery plugged into the wall only damages the capacity if it's hooked up to a "dumb" charger. Any recent laptop doesn't use a "dumb" charger.

    continuing with the mis-information, I see. It is *preferred* to leave a lithium-ion battery plugged into a smart-charger whenever possible.

    If you have to unplug it, and lets say you use 10% capacity so now you're at 90% left, you're better-off reconnecting it than draining it more.
