    Now that the Playbook is almost 3 years old, what is the charge count on your Playbook?

    Mine is 618 with a battery health at 87%.

    Considering I bought my Playbook for $200, I think I got my money's worth and then some.

    Hi DigitalMadness,
    Could you explain average users the method to get charge counts and battery health ?

    Battery Watch gives some data but just approximates the battery health. Battery Guru is relative,y inexpensive. You could get your own approximate number by fully charging your playbook and then discharging at a constant load setting until it shuts off. Then measure % battery left and adjust. Battery Wat h can help here.

    As I am following this thread and seeing that people with less charges on their PB have a lower percentage of battery health, I got to wondering what other people's procedure is for charging their PB. I normally allow mine to drain to around 20% or less before I place it on the rapid charger. I got a little more than 225 charges on it before my percentage dropped to about 97% and then dropped gradually thereafter to the current 94% with 310 charges. I would like to think that my practice is maintaining my battery well so that I can still use my PB well after 1000 charges.

    If I installed this today will it go back and figure out how many times I have charged it to date?

    PB #1

    Battery Health- 87%
    Purchase date- Sept 2011

    PB#2
    Charge Count- 229

    FWIW I rarely allow my PBs to get below 25% and my battery health for #1 has been stable for the past 2 yrs.
