Hi,

I have a MBP late 2013. I have 824 cycles on this battery and it's still at 85% health. Am I crazy or it's really good for a battery ?

Will it eventually fail to 0% or it's going to be a long and slow deterioration ?

thanks

That is insane good compared to what I'm getting.

Mid 2015 purchased December 2016. I'm currently at 316 cycles with 81 percent health.

My 2014 is at 221 and my 2015 is at 321 so the previous owner of the 2015 used it on battery far more than I do. I don'tknow how you get the health percentage but it comes up as normal on both of my systems. I don't really care that much about it - if it becomes a problem, I'll bring it to the Apple Store and replace it. It's not an issue as to battery life for either for me.

My late 2013 15-MBP has 424 cycles on it, and seems only a little worse for the wear. The most cycles I've ever seen was on my daughter's 2011 13-MBA, which had something like 1100 before it got the Replace Battery warning. It was a little more than 4 years old. The shortest was my wife's 2012 13-MBA, which had less than 300 cycles before the Replace Battery warning came (she usually kept it plugged in.) It was just under 5 years old.
