Before Apple had that recall for ibook batteries, my "exploding" battery had a 96% capacity, even after 67 load cycles. The replacement battery they sent has only been through 13 load cycles, but it's already down to a capacity of 97%. I'm getting this info from coconutBattery. The replacement battery had a current capacity of 4600 mAh when I first got it, 200 mAh more than its supposed maximum capacity of 4400 mAh. It is now down to 4274 mAh capacity, in the span of a few days and 2 charge cycles. Is this drastic loss of capacity normal? I'd rather have the "exploding" battery back if it can hold a 96% capacity after 67 load cycles. I take care of my batteries - I usually fully charge and discharge completely, keeping constant calibration.
