    I'm curious how many years/load cycles most of you see out of your batteries before having to replace them? I know apple says to expect 80% of the designed capacity once you hit 1000 load cycles but mine is still going strong at 88% with 1900 cycles. Also once they do go bad is there anywhere to buy OEM batteries or do you have to go directly to apple for a replacement?

    You got lucky, OEM batteries are available a few places like ifixit.

    I checked ifixit but they seem to have none in stock.



    Depends on what tasks I am doing but with light use 6 or so hours.

    Holy moly ! This is so good!

    And I was worried with 450 cycles and 84%health. xD
