    I've only had my 13" for about a week now. The battery has 10 cycles on it and is down to 98% health? Should it be like that or not?

    Is that normal? To drop 2% battery health with 10 cycles

    Your battery health is referred to either as a percentage or in mah and represents your current full charge capacity (mAh) as compared with the ideal full charge capacity (100%). Be aware that battery readings are not 100% accurate, so if your brand new battery health is somewhat less than 100% or if it fluctuates up and down over time (100%, 96%, 99%, etc.), don't worry. This is completely normal.
