    Hey all:
    Got a question about the battery in my wife's white Macbook. I just downloaded (and ran for the first time) Coconut Battery and it reports the following info:
    ------------------------------------------------
    Current Battery Charge: 5281 mAh
    Maximum Battery Charge: 5281 mAh

    Current Battery Capacity: 5281 mAh
    Original Battery Capactiy: 5020 mAh

    Battery-LoadCycles: 60
    Age of your Mac: 8 months
    ------------------------------------------------
    Now, I'm no rocket scientist, and I'm definitely NOT complaining, but how in the world does my battery have MORE capacity now than it did when it was new? Is this an error in Coconut? System Profiler reports the same capacity... and my research online seems to concur that 5020 mAh was the original capacity. Has anyone seen anything like this? Thanks! :)
