SOURCE: Macbook battery level shows fully charged at 83 percent

Most likely this is because you are loosing cells in your battery; the same ageing process that happens to us all. I'm guessing that in System Profiler under Battery it says 100-200 cycles or more. You cannot do anything to stop or reverse this. To prolong the life of your battery, once you unplug your power cable, keep it unplugged until (a bit after) it asks for you to put it in, and then leave it there until fully charged.

My Gateway laptop, NE56R1u, shuts down automatically when unplugged even though fully charged?


Dear Leslie,

I had the very same problem with a HP Pavillion DV4 laptop and the problem was inside the battery - one of its cells became defective and the charge did not last more than a few seconds - it also showed a 100% charged icon but the battery was depleted in seconds.

Before buying a brand new battery you could check with a friend that has a similar laptop if he/she can lend you his/her battery for a few minutes and check whether the laptop keeps on or not with that other battery. In the case it remains on, it is the battery for sure, and you will need to buy a replacement one. Check the link below, for one option.

Hope you may find this information useful!

Best regards,

Miguel L. Martins

Battery will not charge


li-Ion batteries have a bad habit: whenever fully depleted, they lose a few cells, to the extent that they might not be able to hold a full charge if enough cells are damaged. In other words, repeatedly using a laptop (or any other Li-Ion powered device) to battery depletion can shorten the battery's life significantly. You might want to keep the batteries fully charged whenever possible and avoid fully depleting them too often.
There is also the habit of "re-setting" the batteries by using the "fully deplete-fully charge" procedure. It only applies to niMH or NiCD batteries ( and is used to erase the "memory effect" ) but is damaging to Li-Ion batteries for the reason mentioned above.
so if your battery can not full charge,this mean you need change a new battery for your laptop

Moultrie camera mfh-dgw 2.1 reads BATTERY LOW but battery has full charge.


1st, unless you have a solar panel on this cam, stay away from rechargeable batteries.When new they will be @100+%, but have to be virtually drained to get to charge back, and then will only charge to about 80%.A solar charger will keep them @ above 80%.
Now, to solve your prob;I have found dirty/corroded contacts;evidence of dampness/corrosion @battery connections to main board; and fireants...they are attracted to electrical and will electricute themselves causing open connections...just a few solutions to ck out.

Unexpected shutdown with fresh battery ...only cycled 23 times so far. Mac shuts down after about 3 minutes....then shuts down on boot sequence after that. No warning...just shuts down instantly. Macbook...


"Shuts down instantly without warning" is the hallmark of a faulty battery. "All five lights on" is meaningless, as batteries with this fault go from 100% to 0% in a finger-snap. Assuming your battery is under warranty, it should be replaced at no charge.

Macbook battery level shows fully charged at 83 percent instead of 100 percent. Is this a power inverter problem? It's a first generation Macbook

How do i view the battery indicator on the Kodak md1063 digital camera. Handbook shows icon bottom right, however this does not appera. I did notice the icon when I first switched on - battery required...


I'm not 100% sure about this. But I "think" the battery icon is a warning icon that only shows if the battery is depleted by more than 50%. That's certainly how it works on other Kodak cameras.

Battery Life


Recharge the battery and use it three to four times. If the same thing continues then its conclusion that you have to replace the battery.
