View Full Version : How's your Unibook battery going?

Sep 14, 2009, 09:42 AM
I bought my 13' macbook last November, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed by the battery.

At the moment I'm on 490 charge cycles (WoW addiction drains life fast), yet surprisingly I can still run for 3+ hours battery life when not playing WoW.

My previous 2006 white Macbook battery got fried alot quicker.

44 cycles at 100% health still...

I keep it plugged in most the time :o

Just got my MacBook on Thursday and it's been through 6 cycles and the health keep going between 92-94% and 100%. Strange. My year and a half old WhiteBook never went below 98% the whole time I had it and it had 430 charge cycles on it.

89 cycles and 100% Health in 10 months still, mostly plugged in.

I can get an easy 4 hour doing basic stuff not too much multi tasking.

345 cycles deep and I'm holding strong at 97% battery health.

114 cycles and it's being a fricken' tank at 98%.

I don't have a unibody MacBook but i'd like to chime in.

I have a Mid-2007 MacBook, is my battery just a Juggernaut or are you guys using something else to check your battery health??

I got my uMB the first week it came out, and the battery health is still at 100% with just over 40 cycles. (I also leave mine plugged in most of the time, but if I don't do it already, I make sure to do a full cycle at least once every few weeks.)

My battery kicked the bucket last week so I had to get it replaced. Still under AppleCare so the repair was free. So right now, my unibody MacBook is sporting a brand new battery.
