    My PowerBook's battery capacity is starting to rapidly lose capacity over the last couple of months. It's currently sitting at 73% - jumping down from 80% a month ago.

    Is it time to consider getting a new Battery??

    I've included stats from coconut battery as well.

    That's a lot of cycles.

    Here's what Apple has to say:

    I think it's time to consider springing for a new battery.

    Yeh - It may be time to get a new one. Should I go for a genuine Apple battery of one of the NewerTech high capacity ones...

    edit -just ordered a 4800mAh newertech one. should be here on tuesday. $20 cheaper that the Apple one and has more capacity. a 1 year warranty as well!!
