Hi!

I have owned my black Macbook for about 3 months. And this 2 weeks, I noticed that it's not recharging unless the percentage is very low (abou < 50%). Right now, it's at 67% and not recharging. I have tried restarting it. And also disconnecting and reconnecting the power cable. Nothing drastic has been tried yet.

Also, my batt's max capacity is very low. I bought it at about 5200 mAh, but right now, after about 10 cycles, it's at 3487 mAh!!!

Is something wrong with my batt? the macbook? should i get it replaced?

what should i do?

Update on the situation

i have just recalibrated the battery and according to coconutbatt, it's now at 61% of max capacity when fully charged! onlky after 3 months... and no, it still doesn't recharge the battery properly, i ran a video on battery power until it's 84%, plugged in the power cable and it doesnt recharge.

will try the PMU reset now.
