    My Original Battery full under the replacement standards (Health 80%> Cycles 300>) and was replaced in June (I Think, around then) While my MBP still had Applecare

    Now 10.6 is telling me to 'Service Battery' which the Pop up menu describes as -
    Service Battery: The battery isn’t functioning normally, and you may or may not notice a change in its behavior or the amount of charge it holds. Have your computer checked by an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP). You can continue to use your battery before it’s checked without harming your computer.

    Now, the Battery is currently at 71% Health, and 171 Cycles, and is at max 6 months old, can i still get a replacement battery, even if the Machines Applecare has run out? Or is the battery Applecare tied to the machine?

    Never seen the Service Battery Menu, or even heard it mentioned, so i attached a little pic of it for you. Never saw it in 10.5 when my other battery went
