    so I just checked coconut battery for the first time in 5 months or so, and almost fell out of my chair. The last time I checked, in November, my computer was 5 months old, had something like 70 load-cycles if I remember correctly, and had 93% battery capacity. Fairly normal I think.

    It now has 126 Load cycles, is 10 months old and has 59% capacity!!

    What the hell! I have the computer plugged in most of the time, and make sure to completely drain the battery once a month or so... how has its capacity gone down so much??

    coconutBattery informed me that my 22 month old computer has 89% less capacity.

    Of course it also told me my computer wasn't plugged in nor was it charging, and it was definitely doing both.
