    So is everyone doing this?

    the also give a Percentage of Life is the Assistant, so I guess that is working on

    So has anyone gone over 300 and what was the % or time you have lost since new

    I do the 8% thing. As I understand it it's nothing to do with battery conditioning (these are lipos after all, so no memory effect to worry about) but it helps to calibrate the accuracy of the "% charge remaining" reporting by the smart circuitry - this means that you should be getting an accurate measure of remaining battery power when your chosen first and second level alerts are hit.

    I haven't yet 300 cycles with any of my 4 batteries, but I have labelled them and do make sure they are rotated in and out of use so that they are all get broadly similar usage.
