    We don't really have one of these...just a lot of battery problem threads.

    From your System Profiler>Power (so we all get the same readings).
    Put down your CYCLE COUNT and your FULL CHARGE CAPACITY.
    Also just for more clarification show whether you own a Macbook (CD or C2D) or a Macbook Pro (CD or C2D).


    Macbook Pro C2D (purchased refurb in March)
    37 cycles
    5386 full charge count

    No, you'll have better numbers. 5500+ full capacity and 0 cycles! lol

    The replacement came ridiculously fast, btw. I called on a Weds night around 9 and the new battery arrived that friday morning. Props to :apple:

    Yeah, the weekends always suck when you place orders near the end of the week.

    What did the 17" battery start out at?

    I usually use the MB while it is plugged in. Maybe I should cycle the battery a little more often.

    You can get that replaced, fyi. Mine was about 5100 with 118 load cycles and Apple sent me a new battery. Might want to call 'em.
