    So I've had my MBP 13 for 3 weeks and i took a screenshot of coconut battery
    . I've noticed crappy battery life so does the 94% mean my battery isn't doing as good as it should be? Shouldn't it be at 100 since its new ? Thanks!

    and what if the battery health doesn't fluctuate as it says? What if it just always comes up as 94%? is there something wrong with my battery?

    Did you calibrate your battery, using the instructions in that link? Unless you have, that reading may not be accurate. And no, you don't have to worry about it unless the health on a calibrated battery drops below 80% before 300/1000 cycles, as that link points out.

    Damn the translator is funny, isn't it :D The first part is the actual information, the second just some insulting phrase you can't translate one to one.


    Actually blame the OP because he is native speaker and not even able to rtfm.

    Mine is still 100% :D

    Just check what your real world usage is instead relying on what software tells you though :)

    Have you calibrated to make sure it's accurate?

    Calibrated it last week. The meter is pretty accurate with real world battery usage thus it's correctly calibrated.
