Thanks for replying, But I think the issue is with the Mavericks, Not with any hardware or anything.
Its like it is not showing correct % left of power. My macbook when fully charged working on it without direct power ,gives me around 4hr or so without charging (with wifi). So problem is not with the battery I think. Its just mavericks some times wrongly displays the % and that % not changes until I restart. After Restart It shows correct % and % starts decreasing normally as according to usage.

Appleprodcts, I too am having the same issue as you. My MacAir will hang at different battery %'s, the most recent was just then, when I was wacthing a video, for well over 20 mins, and my battery remained at 48%. I put the computer to sleep and instantly woke it back up and the battery on the login screen showed 31%. BUT when I logged in, it went back to 48%. Definitely Mavericks, never had this problem until installing this OS. Upon writing this, the batter has corrected and has commenced its decent, still very frustrating.

I second this problem. My MBP started doing that same thing this week, after I installed the SMC v1.2 update (from 12/3/13). I had already installed Mavericks the day it came out without this problem until now.

Is this still an ongoing issue? I've experienced the same with a brand new MBP which is totally fresh, nothing installed on it at all - I posted about it here:

Just reporting to say I have the same issue. I have identified the issue - it occurs when I am rebooting from Windows Bootcamp. When back in OS X, my battery % is stuck on one value (as the battery drains normally), so I will sometimes see my battery at 100% for a while and then suddenly shut off.
I have a 15" rMBP on Mountain Lion running Windows 7 Boot camp. I also have Parallels to the same Boot camp that I rarely use.

I've also been having similar issues.
The other issue I've noticed is the Date and Time on the Menu Bar disappears sometimes when you wake up from sleep or a few other scenarios as well. The work-around for this is I change it to View as Analog and back to View as Digital.
