    in the last few weeks my battery health has dropped dramatically. The last time i checked, my health was in the 80's when i check the other day it was down to 55% at 134 cycles. the apple site states that it should retain about 80% health for up to 300 cycles. do i have a faulty battery or something?

    i took out a loan and spent well over 2 grand on this thing. i do/have done everything to keep it running in tip top shape, including calibrating it at least once a month. so far its turned out to be a total piece of crap. anyway i searched the forums for a while last night and from the looks of it i might have a faulty battery or something. im going to take it in to an apple store next week.

    My battery shows 184 cycles, and 18% capacity on my Powerbook G4 1.67ghz.
    I purchased my machine secondhand, so I don't know how it was used, but obviously, my battery hasn't held up too well.
