For some reason my Eee 701 is reporting battery charge in 10% increments, rather than 1% which other laptops do. Is this a common problem, or a faulty part/software? Other than this issue, there are no other problems with the computer.

Running Windows XP Pro SP3.

Same as my 900 model. Not sure if it's a hw/sw prob or if it's by design.

Does it report decrements of 10% when discharging as well?

It does it both during charging when on and when discharging.

It's a hardware thing - documented on www.eeeuser.com.
