    So my battery health is now at 82% after 188 cycles. I'm wondering if this is normal or I should get it checked out. I have run the battery calibration and it has not done anything to improve my battery times.

    Your quite wrong on that. I called apple told them about it and they said its completely off and they are sending me a new battery free of charge.

    I took mine back just last week, and guess what?
    They changed it, then said "if it does it again... bring it back" :D

    wrong...

    82% @ 188 cycles is pretty darn good.

    i am at 95% after 25 cycles
    &
    91% at 90 cycles.


    perfectly fine.

    I'm at 91% with 237 cycles. Although I think that's wrong since just a day or two I was at 100%. iStat does that sometimes for whatever reason.

    So what exactly is considered "not normal"?

    id say something around 70% health when <100 cycles.

    apple says the batteries start to die about after 500.. i spose thats somethiing under 50% original health.. although.. apple does say that if properly maintained battery health can be at 80% after 300.

    your doing pretty will there, you discharge all the time?

    I did some searchs in the forums and there were people with powerbooks at 95% with over 400 cycles. My battery IS at fault. I went from having 4 hours of battery life to just under 2 in 1 day. Before i recalibrated it it was actually only 40 mins of battery life. Tell me that something isnt wrong.

    i asked a while back and they said it didn't meet the criteria for replaceable.. sucks cause this thing lasts no time on battery anymore

    I called Applecare a couple of months ago and told them about my battery cycle life and the guy just sent me a brand new one, no questions asked. Try calling them. Im at 91% with 141 cycles.

    Hmmm, I am at 93% with only 37 cycles (bought in October last year). Maybe I should call and see what they can do :confused:
