    After 7 loadcycles, my battery is at 57%... check picture.
    WTF? This is a model from Apple's extra stock, so it's late 2006 model.

    Are you running OS X 10.5? If so, don't bother with what Coconut Battery says. It doesn't play well with Leopard. This is a known issue.

    Have you checked the information here. It could be that you're eligible for replacement under the known battery issue problem.

    A 2006 model should have more than 7 load cycles. Do you use your MBP plugged in all of the time? How often are you exercising and calibrating your battery? If you haven't calibrated in a while, start there.

    Coconut battery was recently updated to 2.6 to work in Leopard. See what your new info is with it.

    That said though, when I was using 2.5.1 with Leopard, I found that the mAh were pretty correct, it was jut the age of my mac and load cycles that were wrong.

    You can also get Battery Health Monitor or just look in System Profiler under Power for the information.
