    Hi there!

    Is there something wrong with my 13" MacBook 2016?? It only has 4315 battery capacity . 12 cycles!! :(

    Seems wrong! As my older ultra thin MacBook had a similar battery capacity!!

    So why the hell is this thing so heavy considering it has a minuscule battery inside?

    Some one just laughed at me and said there phone has more capacity than my MacBook Pro :/
    (They must be wrong right ;)

    No this is the actual system profile on the right! As you can see its still really low. This picture is the comparison to the previous generation. Massive difference!
    So looks like the previous generation had 2000 mAh more capacity!

    Take note of the 'Amperage' in that screenshot. Add that number to your capacity. Understand that it shows when discharging the battery. Try plugging in a cable and fully charge the device, then look again.

    The "Two Thunderbolt" version (aka non-touch bar) has a larger battery than the "Four Tunderbolt" version (like yours with a touch bar).

    Unfortunately not, the non touchbar version has a larger battery and this has been confirmed.

    According to Apple's specs, your laptop comes with the 49.2Watt-hours battery. Your battery has 50.12Watt-hours, so you are actually over the spec.

    P.S. Whoever told you that their phone has a bigger battery is an idiot. You need to look at both the amperage and the voltage. Just saying "my battery is 5000mah, so its bigger" makes as much sense as saying "my car has a bigger engine, so its faster"
