    Just wondering how I'm doing in the battery dept.

    EDIT: thought i should add, the reason i'm doing this is because it seems to drain fast. In the past fifteen minutes of me using it while browsing, listening to music, and restoring/charging/syncing my iphone I'm down to 88%

    That is really good. You have nothing to worry about. :)

    OK, thanks for the reassurance. Was worried for a bit since I'm not normally conscientious on this type of thing. I'm going to start calibrating once a month now, though.

    that looks all good, mines only 8 months, 157 battery-loadcycles and its at 94 percent (4762 mAH). so looks like you're doing good

    when you use more apps, it uses more cpu and ram, which uses more power, completely normal.

    You're fine. Having the iPhone plugged in sucks down your battery life pretty quickly because your MB is charging your iPhone's battery with its down battery.
