    The displayed percentage often isn't as precise as the manufacturers would like.

    I read somewhere that certain charging patterns can confuse the calculations a bit due to voltage spikes in the battery.

    @Koolstr looks like an Air of some kind...

    But I would guess this is somewhat related to the issues the newest MBPs are having with wildly varying battery life.

    I read today that the latest MBP is the first one that Consumer Reports has chosen not to recommend in like 10 years -- all due to the battery issues. They said in their testing, the results ranged from 4.5 to 20 hours on a single charge -- all under the exact same performance load (completely idle, screen on, just looking at the desktop).
