    I got my MBP when they were updated in June. Recently, the battery life has been extremely low. On a full charge, I get less than an hour and a half.

    According to Coconut, my health is at 37%. Obviously, that's not good.

    I calibrated it a few days ago to see if that would fix things, and it didn't. The only thing that comes to mind that might be causing this is that at least once a day I unplug it and take it to class. Could this be hard on the battery?

    Or do I just have a faulty battery?

    Thanks for any advice.

    you probably have a faulty battery. if you bought it in June there is still AppleCare on it so they should replace it.
