    I think you guys will agree with me, that I have powercycled my battery too much, resulting in a serious loss of performance with my battery.

    I have been unplugging my MBP each, and every night, and then using battery during th day until I got the low battery warning, then plugging it in until the evening, and so on.

    Looking at the status below, 50+ powercycles in 10 months has reduced the life of my battery by half. Looks like I will invest in a new battery at some point, and follow Apples guidelines to the letter in future.

    Thanks my friend for all that info, i will certainly invest in a new battery, and follow those guides from then on. My own fault I guess, but no harm done.
