    I've owned my 15" mbp for about two months and the battery has done 30 cycles. Coconut battery and istat pro both state that the current battery health/ maximum charge is at 96% or 97%.

    I have been doing calibrations once a month and followed the macrumors guide for looking after the battery.

    Should I be worried about the loss of charge? The manual states the battery should last for 1000 cycles before reaching 80% charge.

    No. It's normal. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    You should only be worried if your battery health drops below 80%. That 96-97% will fluctuate over time.
