Is this as expected? 91% after 100 cycles.



This is an early 2016 Retina MacBook.

Thanks.

My early 2016 Macbook threw a service battery error at 17 months age, 161 cycle count. Now over 2 years old and ~57% original battery capacity.

Based on the picture you posted, I'd say your battery condition looks "GOOD".

My Early 2015 MacBook has 197 Cycles and a health of 82%. What's the % threshold for replacement?
Apple says their batteries should retain 80% capacity up to 1000 cycle counts. 80% is the threshold where diagnostics will throw a service battery warning. If the laptop is under warranty or Applecare, they will replace the battery if it hits 80% prior to 1000 cycle counts. If it is not covered, the % is when you want to pay $199 for a replacement.

111 cycle counts (but 2 years old) and I’m already at 70% capacity on my 2015 12in MacBook. $199 battery swap or new Mac mini....

Thats really good...
do you keep your mac always charged as you use it or do you let it run down to a certain percentage before you charge?
I charge when I reach around 40%. I unplug when I reach around 80–90%.
