    Could anyone let me know what is the full charge capacity on the new macbook? For the rMB 2015, it was 5297 mAh. Thank you.

    The design capacity is 5550mAh. Max capacity can vary slightly (mine is 5578mAh), but the design capacity is what you should care about.

    I'm at like 5497. Quick question, I just got mine today (!!!!), and its saying it has like 5 hours of battery left at 89%. Will that estimation improve as I use the computer more?

    It depends on what you are doing with it. With light usage (web browsing, email, document editing etc) 10 hours is achievable, but a heavier usage may reduce the battery life. If you just got it there's likely indexing and all sorts of other operations going on that are eating the battery.

    FWIW, literally 10 minutes later the batter life recalibrated and now at 75% just listening to music and browsing i'm at 9 hours. so.. win!

    hmm not 100%

    edit* after 10 minutes of running this app, battery life is on 100% now

    edit2* strange.. it jumps between 100 and 99% .. sometimes it shows 5480, then 5500, then 5475 is this normal? Do you have a constant number?

    Don't sweat it.....it will bounce around some.

    I like the 2016 MacBook battery capacity as it shows much better life than my 2015 did out of the box, which never showed more than 90%.

    now it actually shows 98-99%... 97 was the lowest. So, you think i don't need to worry?

    my plan is to fully discharge it and then fully load it. Maybe this helps to get my paid 5550 mAh :p

    Does the new battery stay around 5550 mAh or does it degrade like what happened for some of the rMB 2015 at this forum?

    Okay. My new Macbook arrived an now everything seems fine - 5590 mAh.

    The last one started at 99% (5424 mAh) and then constantly lost 1 % battery health per day.
