    So, I just got a 15" and I finally got around to popping on Coconut battery to see what the health was. This pc is specced with a 6900 mAh battery and mine has 7079 mAh capacity. Love it!

    Have you properly calibrated your battery? (I'm guessing no, based on your cycles) If not, the readings are likely inaccurate. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    z0MG!

    your battery is in grave danger! nothing can go over 100% its capacity without self destructing! This m3ans that your battery has overheated and grown a baby bump that is allowing another 2%. if you keep letting this happen soon you will have a split open laptop with one tired a** battery and a newborn!


    unless... you removed your opti bay giving room for the new baby battery inturn increasing your total battery capacity in the long run!



    yes.. im bored:cool:

    Coconut battery has been known to give varying results ... once you calibrate, your battery will probably show a reading of 100%

    Yes.
    Calibrate your battery. Your readings are likely inaccurate.

    Did you follow the exact steps, or did you just drain and recharge your battery? Many people don't know about the proper calibration procedure.

    yeah, did as apple web told:

    1. charge to full for 2 hrs+
    2. disconnect pow cable and use up all battery
    3. aft auto saving stay sleep mode for 5 hrs+
    4. recharge to full.

    maybe apple changed battery mode for new mbp, cocountBattery cant get reading right?

    Your battery is likely not at 103% health. Coconut battery readings should be taken with a grain of salt even after you calibrate.

    Meh, my base 13" 2011 (and my previous base 13" 2009) is like that. Before and after proper calibration.

    Yea my battery showed 102% after calibration :p

    Maybe Apple advertises the charge on their batteries a little conservatively? I guess it's better than advertising it as 7000mAh and having varying results.
