    I have had my macbook since July. When using coconut battery, it says that the max charge it has now is 4945 mAh out of the original 5200mAh. This is 95%. Does this sound about right to you guys?

    Thanks

    Yeah, that sounds about right for six months of usage. Actually, it's really pretty good. :)

    It sounds right to me too. However if I'm comparing your MB to the MB I bought two months ago, I would think again. Currently, my MB says that my Full Charge Capacity is 5564mAh when it had 5150mAh on the first couple days before calibrating the battery.

    do you run you mac without a power supply often? or are you pretty wired down?

    And do you go to duke right now or about to go?

    Consider yourself lucky! I've had mine since late September, and it's at 85%...

    for the most part im wired down. occasionally use the battery at times.

    no i don't go to duke (the sn is very old so I just stick with it) since it wasn't too strong in my major.

    I currently am a senior colorado state which is awesome!
