Hi!
I bought my laptop last month and had done only 6 full cycle charge. The design capacity of the battery is 42000 wH and when I first bought it, it's full charge capacity was somewhere around 43,800 wH.
But today I noticed that my full charge capacity has decreased to 43,100 wH. Almost 700wH difference.
Is this normal?
Is it happening because the full charge capacity is greater than the design capacity?'

Many thanks!
 
If you're performing full charge & discharge cycles, that will add wear to the cells a lot faster. I don't know a lot about watt hours, but it is normal to experience a gradual amount of wear.

Have you used any software to see your wear level? If it's unusually high after one month of use, the manufacturer may be willing to cover the battery if under warranty.

No I dont have, but the wear level should be 0% because the full charge capacity is still above design capacity.
In HWMonitor the wear level shows 0%.
