    I recently took my Macbook Pro (early 2008, not unibody) to check out the battery health to a Apple authorized repair place (MacXperts) and this is the second battery that I've had that's had to be replaced because it went bad.

    1st battery: died within 30-40 minutes
    2nd battery (current): caused by MBP to shutdown when there was plenty of battery left. It basically went dead with no warning.
    Now I'm waiting on my new, third, battery.

    Now, my questions:
    Can this be actually be caused by my Macbook Pro?
    Or are we looking at a fairly common issue and I've just gotten two bad batteries?

    Could be a bad logic board or some other chip in the computer causing the battery to report being bad
