Just downloaded coconut battery and strangely enough the battery only shows 97% despite just 1 load cycle (confirmed by the program).
Any idea what is going on?

Thanks

My year old MBA 13" has a 96% health after 146 cycle's. It was 97% after a few cycle's and it stayed pretty much the same after all this use. So I wouldn't worry, just keep an eye on it and if it drops 3% with every cycle, get back to the store, otherwise keep using it!

You can try calibrating it.

Apple says this is no longer required with the built-in batteries. But it doesn't hurt anything to try it.

It's perfectly normal for your battery health to fluctuate up and down over time.
This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

Mine varies from 98-99, so don't worry about it. Should be about the same anyways.
