    Ordered new i5 MBP on launch day, got it week later and did a battery check.

    Coconutbattery showed age at 3 weeks, battery health was 100% and 1 cycle.

    now its showing age 5 weeks, 8 cycles and already down to 96% health.

    G/fs 13" MBP that I got her in mid feb has had about 50 cycles and 97% battery health.

    anyone else notice this, or is it normal for it quickly to drop around 96-97% health then slow its decline?

    Battery health indication jumps around a lot. I had 92% once with 30 cycles or so, now that I have 100 cycles I'm back to 99% health.

    Btw, MRoogle (my and many, many others' signatures) is a good tool to search these fora, as the battery health question gets asked daily.
