    Picked up a new 13" base from the Apple Store today. Ran coconut battery and my battery is at 3 loadcycles and my mac is 26 weeks old.

    What do yours say? Is 3 cycles on a new one normal?

    When I first looked, it said 2 cycles. I'm not sure what it was out of the box though.

    Here's the order of things I did:

    1) Opened it up in the car (I was in the passenger seat, lucky I didn't have to drive myself today -- saved on gas, went shopping with my mom... also lucky: I apparently have a $1000 debit limit which I didn't know about, so she helped cover the extra $150+ taxes temporarily).
    2) Turned it on to look at it for a few seconds (to make sure I wasn't driving away with a lemon).
    3) Once I got home, turned it on and plugged it in to charge (had an 86% charge out of the box).
    4) Charged to 100% then used it down to 3% battery charge.
    5) Plugged it in to charge for the second time, and looked at the cycles, and cycles said 2.

    1 load cycle. 22 weeks old. I don't quite understand the 22 weeks and I wonder if it's an issue with coconutBattery itself.

    You guys think I should take mine back? 3 load cycles is a bit much I think.
