LOSS OF: 9% Performance

It looks like the battery is quite good at keeping itself in good condition,
and that translates SL really does chew more battery, resulting in comparatively lesser battery endurance:rolleyes:

All batteries are not created equal. It is very possible to be above the designed capacity.

My battery has apparently gotten better with age :p maybe its because I use the battery so infrequently? I use my MacBook as a desktop most of the time.

I got:

MacBook Air Rev B 1.86/SSD

Current Battery Capacity: 4708 mAh
Original Battery Capacity: 5090 mAh

Health: 92%

Battery-Loadcycles: 37 cycles
Age of my MBA: 10 months

Is it just me or isn't my current capacity kind of low given the few cycles and only 10 months?

Thanks

Nope, it's normal. The less you use it doesn't mean you'll automatically get more current capacity.

Batteries are made a bit earlier, and then they are but into the mac when it is assembled… ;)

guess you did never calibrate your battery ;) that would allow to show the truth and it would be not that good i guess
