    Battery status is normal, but when you hit option key, it shows an exclamation mark triangle.

    What gives?

    Take it to apple, you'll probably get a new battery for free. ;)

    Ah perhaps not then. :p Have you tried calibrating the battery and clearing NVRAM, PRAM and SMC?

    What is your battery health % (in your System Information/System Report/Power tab.)

    How many charge cycles are reported there?
    What is your listed Full Charge Capacity?

    But, all is really meaningless if you get good battery life?
    How long can you run completely portable (only battery)?
