    could you use coconut battery to post your battery's health?

    i am especially interested battery health of MBP15", if you don't have coconut battery, use about this mac, more info, power, and read the number after "Full Charge Capacity (mAh)"

    thanks

    EDIT: for those of you confused, if you have a macbook pro 17", your "original capacity" is not 5500, it's about 6500

    Yeah mine is roughly the same... have had mine since Macworld. I wouldn't be too concerned about battery life decay this early though :p

    any way to check out a PB G4 running 10.3.9? (my system profiler doesn't show power stats, and coconut battery is only for Tiger).

    hmmm...

    From About This Mac: Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4464

    Seems awfully low, huh? This MBP 15 in Core Duo is 8 months old

    EDIT: 9 months old, according to coconutbattery. Original capacity: 5500 (a loss of 19%). Do I smell a recall in the future??? Or does Applecare cover this?

    Maybe I should try re-calibrating it? That's... dismal.

    If calibration doesn't help, I'd be calling AppleCare...as you can see on mine, I have 60 cycles and mine has dropped 10%, which seems much more reasonable.
