Charging battery takes a very long time
Much longer than it used to be.
Is battery dying on me?
Anyone else has the same issue?

Ever since day 1 my battery took a while to charge...at least 8-9 hours. How long of battery life do you get? I get about 9-10 hours.
I get 7-8 hours. It does take all night to charge up though.
I also get 7-8 hours. Charging takes at least 6+ hours.

I don't like nonremovable batteries. Once they die, your toy dies too.
I get around 9 hours of life with mixed use ie book reading, browsing, games and some video. It seems to take 6 plus hours to fully charged if it's almost out of juice. One more thing I find unless I turn it off it will only charge to 99% it seems to draw just enough in sleep mode to never reach 100%.

I have found the same with not turning it off. It also seems to take longer. Not unreasonably longer, but longer
I think this is a battery driver issue, this needs to be adjusted in kernel itselfs. Also for me it charges up to 99% and then it goes up to 100 just to drop to 99 a second later. Next issue in my opinion is that it shuts down at 5% left. Is this the same for all or is this just me?

I haven't had mine go to 5% yet, but I think it's a good idea. I know battery memory isn't supposed to a problem anymore, but I don't trust that

The fluctuating between 99% and 100% just sounds like trickle charging to keep the battery full without overcharging.
