I agree, I've seen the same problem with new mobile phones where people complain that the batteries are only lasting a day but after a week or so they come right as the battery meter learns the upper and lower limits of that particular battery. I always do three or four full charge / discharge cycles on all my devices and I ignore whatever the battery meter says while I'm doing this because I know it's probably wrong. After doing this I usually get excellent battery life from my devices.
