    have you reset your SMC?

    hows your everyday battery life? do you get the ammount of hours you expect from a full charge

    thats sounds good, might jsut be iStat giving bad info or your SMC thats making the reading inacurate

    have you tried coconut battery to see what it shows for a health reading

    Battery health will fluctuate up and down by several %. One day it might say 87%, the next it might say 93%. I wouldn't be concerned unless it's steadily, rapidly going down.

    It is perfectly normal if your battery health (maximum capacity) fluctuates up or down over time. For further details, read the CHECKING STATUS AND HEALTH section of the following link.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:
    iStat doesn't give bad info. It reports exactly what the Mac reports. If anything, coconutBattery has known issues with accuracy, so I would trust iStat Pro more.

    That does sound concerning.

    I have 895 cycles and I am around 91%
