The users are just holding it wrong. It really reads "%001", which is AppleTalk for 90%.

Has it really been a secret that devices will call 99% charged, 100%? I have an old laptop with LiIon batteries and I can watch it cycle between 99% and 100% while plugged into the charger. Devices with 'smart' chargers have been doing that for years to extend the battery life.

This is kind of a weird article. The author extensively describes the ways in which the iPad complaints are actually due to intended design, and/or they are complaints about things that aren't bad (a warm electronic device is normal), and then he ends the article by implying it's all Apple spin, and they're just bullshltting to make it look better.

Seems more like the former is true, not the latter.
