    Is this normal? Will Apple give me a new battery? My battery is at 47% capacity after 10 battery-loadcycles.

    They will surely replace it. I complained because mine was at 90% after less than a year, and they replaced it free.

    My battery on my 12 inch G4 Powerbook is about 3 months of use old, probably 5 months of life old. My capacity of the battery (as reported by CoconutBattery) is 100%. Is this normal, or is there something wrong with the reporting of the program?

    91% after 4 months of use. Calibrated once incorrectly (used Powerbook method instead of MBP/MB method). 81 load/cycles.

    How do you take 'better care' of your battery?

    If i calibrated it again would it improve on the 93% ?

    It appears that it was a fluke reading. The capacity is back up to 97% on coconut battery... However, I too am interested in how to properly take care of my battery to preserve its life for as long as I can! Do tell if you know!

    What I find weird with coconut is that my battery on my macbook says

    'original battery capacity' 5200 mAh
    'current battery capacity' 5403 mAh

    ???

    How is that possible
