    "Red Battery Icon" shows up in some Google / Apple forums searches but doesn't appear to be associated with an actual problem from casual glances at those. (other than that exploding issue mentioned above)

    Have you checked the battery health in either the Menu Bar (Hold Option key and click the icon on the screen) or in the System Report (About this Mac > More info > Power > Health information: Condition : ) ?

    Perhaps because I left out some steps. Sorry about that. Hopefully this will get you there:
    About this Mac > More Info > System Report > Hardware > Power...
    Battery Information > Health Information > Cycle count and Condition.
    (System Report can also be found in the Applications Folder > Utilities Folder* where it is named System Information (Used to be called System Profiler))

    *(Which is "Other" when using LauchPad for some obscure reason)

    for "condition" it says it's "Normal"
    but for "cycle count" i have a question
    how many is it supposed to be?

    The cycle count is merely the amount of complete cycles you battery has done. for example, if you use your MBP fully charged and then discharge to 0%, it is one complete cycle. Similarly if you take MBP at 100% and use it till 50% on two occaisons, that is also one cycle.

    From what I can gather the red battery symbol is merely a minor bug. If it bothers you, try resetting the System Management Unit

    You could also try accepting Jesus as your Lord and Personal Saviour. Just kidding.
