    I have 138 cycles on my battery currently and according to coconut battery it's at 47% capacity. Does this sound right?:confused:

    Is that capacity or health? If it's health it's not good. If it's capacity, it just means you can charge it back to 100%.

    That is definitely bad. If I'm not mistaken, you will get a free battery from Apple if the health is below 80% before 300 cycles.

    I suggest calling AppleCare, and they'll send you a new battery, then you'll send your old battery back to them. They might place a hold on your credit card for the amount of $91 or there about...
