    Hi Guys,

    I have a 2 year old Macbook (White, 2,4Ghz) with 186 batt. cycles. I downloaded the Battery Health Monitor and I'm a bit confused with the results...

    Looks like my battery is now even better than the original capacity?

    BTW: Istat Pro says: 100% health, same 186 cycles.

    Have you calibrated, to make sure your readings are accurate?

    I'll recalibrate it tomorrow since it's 22:00 over here... I'm not going to wait 4 more hours :)

    Probably calibration related but...

    While calibration will probably help with the capacity thing, the figures on there seem plausible (apart from the 101%). My 3-year-old battery has pretty good stats at the moment - see attached picture - and mine is calibrated.

    When Apple first said they could get 1000 cycles from a battery I laughed.
