    I just got my battery replaced and after a full charge both istat and mac osx shows that there is only one cycle available. I remember that my previous battery used to have at least 60 cycles...

    Is 1 cycle normal for new batteries or?

    Are you just kidding.
    Battery cycles on new batteries should be less than 5 ... hell less than 2.

    The cycle count will depend on the battery's age and usage. A new one is going to have about at least 1.
