    Mine has only gone to 100% once. It's an ibook g4? Try bringing just the batter to the store and getting them to change it.

    normal. try running it until it goes to sleep then charge to full.
    on my powerbook it stays at 99% for ages then finally goes to 100

    the percentage in the task bar isn't very accurate. I wish I knew the name of the program but there is one out there that you can use to get all the specific information about your battery (shows amount of times its been recharged, current charge, etc). very useful...check macworld.
