    Ladies and gentlemen, will you please tell me whether or not I should take my UMBP to a genius based on this data:

    Charge Information:
    Charge remaining (mAh): 4519
    Fully charged: Yes
    Charging: No
    Full charge capacity (mAh): 4644
    Health Information:
    Cycle count: 6
    Condition: Good
    Battery Installed: Yes
    Amperage (mA): 0
    Voltage (mV): 12405

    I feel like my battery's not performing to the best of its ability. What advice can you guys give me? I've attempted to calibrate the battery but nothing seems to improve.

    Thank you.

    You're fine. Batteries are almost never perfect. Mine is currently at 92% health after 162 charges. And even that varies between 90% and 101% occasionally.

    I agree, you're fine. iStat Pro is a good tool for monitoring battery condition.

    Isn't the full charge capacity rather low, though?

    I have the early 2008 MBP and my full charge capacity is 5391. I don't know what's normal for the unibody MBPs.

    Compared to what my MBP SR 07's been going through, that battery is just fine:

    Your battery is just fine. The UMBP full charge capacity when new ranges from 4600-4800mAh so you are perfectly within specification.
