Arrow Coconut Battery on your New MBP

Just got my new 15" i7 MacBook Pro Hi-Res Glossy and here's what Coconut Battery says.
Use this thread as a comparison for all the new MacBook Pro's out there!


Feel free to post images!

I only have a 13" but I just want to comment that coconut battery says my new mac is 7 weeks old. So they were making these things 7 weeks ago?

I'm guessing you got a base model? They make them before they announce them, so maybe it was one of the earlier ones? Mine was BTO so thats why its only a few weeks old.

Glitch in the program maybe?

I've heard of it happening before with the new ones.

Its reading the year "0" in the serial number as the year 2000 instead of 2010. Just a glitch that the next update of coconut should fix for the new models.

The serial code formatting changed in the newest models. Completely different, MacRumors ran an article on it but Apple asked them to remove it.

Have you calibrated it yet?
That could possibly help.

I hadn't when I took the screenshot and I'm currently in the process of doing so right now. I will post changes if any occur.

Can someone post their 13" battery readout? I'm a little worried about mine.

Current Capacity: 5710 mAh
Original Battery Capacity: 5770 mAh (98% health)

Age=3 weeks, load cycles=2.

Timer measures around 5 hours. Should be getting WAY more, right?

I was able to get MUCH more battery life out of mine after doing a clean install of OS X. I'm not sure if they used a 15" OS X image to copy to my drive, but it helped by displayed battery time by an increase of about five hours.

I've always gone through a cycle of running it flat then charging it fully, however I'm doing a proper calibration per apple describes as I type this in a hope this improves things.

Either way I'm pretty dissapointed for the battery to degrade this soon :-(

Well good luck! Hopefully it fixes it.

But also, I wouldn't be too worried yet. Just because you've lost a little already, I wouldn't assume it would decrease at the same rate.

Battery calibration seems to have helped! Back up to 99% health (6850 mAh) at the moment. I think I'll do the same tonight and see if I can get it back up to 100%
