    Hi,

    So I have an early 2011 13" Macbook Pro (the low end one) and for a while now I've noticed my battery life to act a bit weird but only recently it seems like it has gotten worse. Whenever I fully charge my battery, it will sit at 100% for maybe a minute or two and then drop straight to 95%. Not only that, at times my battery health will drop to 60% saying I need to service my battery but after I charge it the health goes up to ~83% (this has happened on more than one occasion). I'm not too sure as to what I should do, whether I should take it into the apple store to get it replaced (do I qualify for it? :confused: ) or if this is just a glitch and I shouldn't be too worried about it.

    Thanks in advance :)

    If its still under warranty I would take it in. They will probably replace the battery.

    yeah I've tried calibrating the battery but that makes no difference
