And I just got my MBP two days ago. Is this normal?
I think it's normal since it has only 5 cycles, but new MBPs should have 0 when you first open it. Is this the new MBP or refurbished? Did you charge and run the battery down 5 times or something equivalent to that?
That is not true. Apple does some factory tests on some of the computers so it is normal for it to have 1 or 2 cycles on it coming brand new. Some have "0" some have "1" some have "2" cycles. Important thing is that the battery health is normal and all that jazz.
Its new and it was on 0 when I first used it. I was mainly asking if Im using my battery too much
why worry, if it goes get a new one?
Is there really much you can do abt that? if you use the computer its going to use the battery.
Yeah god forbid the battery lasts 3 years and 51 weeks instead of 4 years.
I'm at 439 cycles since early november and it still has 100% health. Sometimes it bounces around but usually it's at 100.
Oh no, your MBP might blow up and the world as we know it is coming to an end!
Seriously, don't you have other things that are more important to worry about? This is a total non-issue. Get back to us when you've been using your computer for a few months.
The battery is there for you to use. There is no correct way in using it. If you need to use it. You're going to eventually replace the battery anyway.
Nothing lasts forever - just enjoy it while you can. (I track mine, too)...
i believe your next question is, what is a good sleeve and is my mac too hot
You people seriously need to grow up and get a life.
I'm at 136 cycles on my MacBook Air right now. I've owned the system for 53 days.
Actually, new MBPs should display 0 cycles. All my Mac notebooks did. My MacBook is nearly 1 month and has 8 cycles. Apple claims the built-in battery lasts ~1,000 cycles before deterioration so if you use 1 cycle every day, you can theoretically last around 3 years before deterioration.
Dude I know, I think when I'm asleep elves play WoW or something. I don't know where most of them are from. Every time I look there's like three dozen more.
The plural of anecdote is not fact.
Many new MBPs come with 1 or 2 charge cycles, and that is fine.
I've never thought of checking my battery cycles before, but I just did and I'm at 70 - and I've had my computer for like a year and half.
I mainly use it plugged in though - I needed a laptop because I'm a contract worker and we bring our own computers to work.
I wouldn't worry about your battery though, worst that can happen is you will need to buy a new one in a couple of years!
I had three cycles on my brand-new MBP when I started it up.
After my own charge cycle, it was 4 I think.
Battery health started at 97%, but after calibrating and using for a week, it went up to 100%.
Whatever. I see you continue to prove your value here. Who needs a life, now?
