So when I bought my MBP in 2012 I was like cool, this battery will last me at least 5 years with Apple's claim on retaining 80% capacity up to 1000 battery cycles. This was especially important since these batteries are glued to the top case and not really user replaceable. Forward 4 years, and I'm at only 682 cycles and my battery is currently at 67% capacity, in "Service Battery" condition, and once battery charge goes below 50% it will decide there is no battery left and shuts down. So the battery is pretty much useless and ill get at most an hour of unplugged use out of it. This is rather disappointing especially when I'm no where near 1000 cycles, and the battery is toast already. Adding insult to injury, Apple decided to keep RAM @ 16GB so I refuse to buy a new MBP until they have a 32GB option (yes i actually NEED the ram). So I went to the apple store thinking this would be a clear case of a defective battery and apple would stand buy their numbers and claims and replace the battery for me. Well...i was obviously disappointed in that department. Apparently you have to go through 1000 cycles in the first year for apple to stand behind those numbers, which is ridiculous. Looks like it was all marketing hype...so my question is has anyone been able to make apple keep its word about the MBP battery and get it replaced because of it?
