How long are the stock 7-cell 3000mah battery pack's life expectancy? Mine seems to be running at full mAh, but is slowing down a bit. Not a big problem though, the pack is running great.

you can try cycling the pack to bring it back up to snuff but yeah sooner or later they start to lose punch

now I've had mine for just over 6 months now and I've taken reasonably good care of it I'd say and it accepts 2600mah which is ok but I think by the end of 1 year with use around 2x a week it'll be toast

I use it about once a day. What is cycling?

charging and discharging a battery on a charger to stimulate its performance. use it on NiMH

I can't discharge on my charger, it is a micro peak-detecting charger.

IF possible, you might want to invest in a charger that allows you to discharge, then charge at a really low rate ... like 0.5 for a 3000mAh pack. Cycle a few times through discharge-charge-discharge-charge, and you "should" see it taking a greater charge each time.
