2011 13" MBA Battery Issue

My wfie's 13" MBA, MC965LL/A has dipped in battery life lately and I installed coconutbattery to find out that it has only 83% maximum capacity after 172 cycles and 11 months. Should I bring it in to Geniuses?

They likely won't do anything until the health is below 80%. Your battery health will fluctuate up and down over time.

The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
