    Nope. Coconut Battery was made specifically for battery readings on portable Macs.

    Yes, it's normal. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    That happens all the time. Discharge the battery down to 50 to 75% and then recharge it.

    Why are you letting it sit for 5 hours?????

    I see you’ve only had this a week. You need to just step away from the battery checking for awhile. You must be an iPhone owner. Anyway, you should infrequently let the mac get down to 0% (not more frequent than monthly or so).

    Read the section of the FAQ on CHARGING. It explains it quite clearly. You have nothing to worry about.
    Actually, it works if you drain it to around 90-92%.

    because i read somewhere you were supposed to drain your battery, let it sit for 5 hours then recharge it to the max. And it didnt work anyways. but a 99% charge is definitely annoying!

    That's only done during calibration. Read the FAQ I posted. It's perfectly normal for it to stop charging at 99%.
