    Hey All,
    Just stepped into the mac arena about a month ago. Got my 15" 2011 2.0 MBP about 2 weeks ago and just noticed that the battery % never goes to 100%. It will when charging but as soon as I unplug it goes to 98%. I have tried calibrating and what not. Also, when checking the battery health in coconut and istat pro, it says the battery health is at 97% (total health, not charge) only after 17 cycles. That seems a little weird to me.

    So, is this an issue or non-issue?

    Non issue. Its normal for the battery not to charge to 100%.

    This should answer most if not all of your battery questions. Compliments of GGJstudios. Apple Notebook Battery FAQ
