My understanding is it should only be 5% to 10% off new. But I suppose if you take off 10% for new and another 10% because you never get the full rating that could be the 20 or so present I am missing.

It makes me a bit nervous discharging to 10.5 like they suggest 11.9 is empty 10.5 is dead isn't it?
