That doesn't seem right? Do I have a faulty model?
Yes and no.
I took my new rMBP out of the box and the cycle count already said 2. So they must do at least a couple of cycles at the factory. I guess I would wait a few days and see what happens.
How many times have you run it down and re-charged it?
You are fine. It is fairly common to have forum members here report they checked their new out of the box Mac and it has four cycles or so.
The speculation is that Apple is grabbing random samples off the line to do a battery test for quality control. Nothing to worry about.
Your battery is fine... I have a 2012 rMBP for a year and half the battery cycle is 16 with 96% health.
I bought on, it had 4, returned it, the new one had 4. Seems to be common.
Aye, cheers, it's still on 6 now so all must be good. Another quick question, does Chrome tend to wear the battery down quicker than Safari? Mine seems to estimate that I'll get about 7 hours from a full charge when I use Safari. I know I shouldn't read too much into the battery estimates, but it's some way short of the 9 hours advertised.
Yes... definitely Chrome is a battery hog for me. Safari seems much better.
If you click the battery icon in the menu bar it will show you a list of apps that are using "significant energy."
