    something isnt right then.sounds like it isnt reading/calibrating, or perhaps it just isnt capable of reading actual mAh

    I use that app. I also show 6500mah. Also showing max of 8442mv. I charge pretty much every day during the week & as needed on the weekend. I can run the Xoom all day with light use & still have charge left. As far as I can tell, the battery is still plenty strong & is not showing any signs of aging at about 1.5 years.

    and thats where the problem is.

    its impossible for these types of batteries to not lose cell capacity, especially when li-ion polymer batteries are factory rated to lose approx 20% capacity after 500 cycles.

    for whatever reason, the app can only read total battery mAh as noted by the system/MB ( the batteries are actually only 3250 mAh) but cannot actually test it for actual capacity (which renders it useless to check battery health/capacity)

    ill see if i can find another app that actually can test mAh cycles and remaining cell capacity

    originally i got 10 hours normal usage (constantly using tablet where sleep is set to 1 min, and tablet never sleeps) with wifi/4g lte always on

    6 hours heavy cpu/gpu games (like order and chaos)

    lately i have noticed i have had to turn off auto brightness, and gradually lower the brightness level to maintain the same battery life

    this tells me my 18 month old Xoom MZ602 (charged from 0% to full everyday) is losing battery cell capacity, and I want to be able to test it so I can get a replacement battery/replace tablet

    i stopped looking. i am going to do it this way instead- the battery(s) are rated for 3 year life, at such a time (assuming i still have the xoom) i will just simply replace them

    From searching, I think the battery model TB40 is for MZ600 series. Has anyone used it and can anyone confirm? Thanks.
