    current 5438 mAH

    original 5450 mAH

    99%

    only 9 load cycles.... bummer its not 100% anymore


    No way to get it back to 100% even with a calibration? So does this mean my battery won't last as long as it originally did by 12 mAH or whatever? What does mAH stand for?

    Only 2 months old too... I've seen some people with 100% health after years....

    Stop worrying about it, and use your computer. :) And only 9 cycles? wow. I must use my computer wayyyy to much. :eek:

    It means your computer is completely normal. Those readings are fine.

    Personally I've found that coconutBattery's readings tend to fluctuate a little bit (I've had it vary as much as a couple percent over a few days - both up and down). Lithium-ion batteries are pretty good about keeping up their charge, so you have nothing at all to worry about there!

    For comparison's sake, I'm currently sitting at 4605/5020 mAh (91%) after 18 months and 450(!!) load cycles. Yes, I've used this battery a lot. ;)
