Is this amount of battery wear a lot for just 12 cycles?

Did the previous one this morning. Did another one now and it's giving very different numbers. I wouldn't sweat it. However SB2 is determining capacity isn't very accurate.

Yeah I don't know :( I took it in to the MS store though anyway since I was having a lot of trouble getting it to charge. They ran a diagnostic tool on it and it failed the one related to power/battery or something.

I take impeccable care of my electronics and I can't think of what I did (if anything) to cause the unit not to charge, or the battery to wear out so quickly. They gave me a replacement unit since I was within a year of purchasing (thankfully) and I'm hoping to have better luck with this one.

The annoying thing to me is, what if it stopped being able to charge 1 year after buying it? Would I have lost $3,500?

Mine fails that too diagnostic too. Ug, perhaps I should take it to the MS store. I don't know why I'm complaining, the Seattle store has always been a good experience for me.

EDIT: noticed a bit of discoloration, presumably oxidation on one of the pin on the charging cable. Scraped it and it passes.

Don't worry, they would gladly offer you $400 or so for the device to use toward a newer device lol... That's what I was quoted when inquiring about replacing/upgrading my Performance Base i7 16GB to a Book 2, ugh, no thanks! Glad I opted for the complete warranty so I have an extra year to replace/upgrade the device when it acts up.
