Battery Wear: 46%
I've got an Asus Eee 1005PE "netbook" laptop with a 6-cell battery. The usage pattern has always been to let it drain down to 10-40% capacity and then let it recharge during the night. I realize that 2½ years is a respectable age for a laptop, and no less for the battery. Soluto is reporting that the battery is 46% worn.

What can I do to refresh this battery? (Besides replacing it, obviously.)

Battery wear in Li-ion batteries is caused by decrystallization of one of the electrodes. There is nothing that can be done at the macroscopic level to reverse this.
