Bought a ASUS laptop during Sitex 2018

Use for few days. Today discover the battery can not charge to 100%.
Always remain at 99%. Is this normal? Will it get even worst?
Should I go Harvy Norman to exchange a new one?
Thanks for the advice.

This means the unit you bought may have been in storage for too long uncharged.


Usually you leave at 99% for several days then see if it reaches 100%. Stop if the battery gets alarmingly hot to the touch.

Use tool like BatteryInfoView to check the battery health.

I charged it for few days and in windows 10 , the battery went to 100%.

But in the bios it still reads 99%.

Called Asus support hotline, they said it's normal so never request change.

Yes it look normal to me too as it already can get 100%. If HP notebook you can use hardware diagnostic to check. Not sure whether ASUS got it or not.
