    after 11 cycles my battery's health is down to 96%. is this normal? is there anything i can do to stop the health from degrading so quickly? i've had this thing for barely a month.

    thanks

    Normal. It really depends on you use the battery. Health should stay up pretty high if you charge back up to 100% after a complete discharge.

    My MBP battery has 35 cycles on it and is at 93% health. But I stay plugged into a power source, mostly.

    Im only sitting at 89 cycles and my health is down at 94%....which from the looks of things aint too great.

    Any ideas how I can revitalise it/slow down the deterioration??
