    Hey all,

    So i've had my MacBook Pro 13inch with touchbar since it's release and I've been using it fairly excessively. I'm wondering, what is everyones Full Charge Capacity at and what is it from new?

    Mine is currently: Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4302

    I want to get a gauge of the rate I'm using this machine.

    Cheers!

    Because battery is new, full charge capacity will actually seem pretty volatile, so I suggest you just enjoy the notebook more than gauging numbers. Yet, my current max is 4380 against original max 4315.

    Is this your first Mac?

    Nope 2nd bud. I've had 41 charge cycles already though hence the curiosity :p

    I think my battery came with 3 cycles or 4. First I noticed on the Mac, don't remember on my first Mac. My iPhones have always started at 0. Now, after 22 days of using, I am at 10 cycles.

    I have 1252 cycles on my 2012 15" MBP with a battery capacity of 91%. Nothing to worry about there, enjoy your machine.

    Yes, 6900mAh originally, full capacity is at ar around 6150-6200. Depends on ambient temperature it seems.

    Most likely. Mine was around 70-ish percent after 3 years, Late 2011 15" MBP with dGPU. Suddenly, it dropped down bad. Today, it is 531 or so cycles, and 35-40 percent capacity, but will die inside of 5 minutes on battery. So, I wonder what's your real battery capacity and uptime like. Battery temp has varied between 30 and 40 degrees through the life.

    as I said. currently the battery is at roughly 6100-6200 sometimes more, some times less, depending on ambient temperature. I have used my MBP pretty much daily since I got it. I lug it to and from uni, charge it daily. I have no complaints about battery-capacity although battery-life could be better. Working with Word, Safari, Mail, Calendar and Preview I get around 4-5h, also depending on screen-brightness. dGPU is automatically switched off, no key-illumination.
