    Silly question--I have a 2.16 GHZ CD MBP purchased August of 2006. My battery health has taken a serious nosedive as of late--system profiler reads the following:

    Charge Information:
    Charge remaining (mAh): 2794
    Fully charged: Yes
    Charging: No
    Full charge capacity (mAh): 2898
    Health Information:
    Cycle count: 149
    Battery health: Fair

    I know there is an Apple support document out there saying they will replace MBP batteries that are failing 2 years past purchase, but how much wrangling am I going to have to do with Apple to get it done? With screen dim and WiFi on, I'm getting 2 hours of battery tops. Will they replace it or will they tell me I "waited too long?"

    I'm using iStat Pro, but, the data I displayed in my post was from the System Profiler (a full charge below 3000 is entirely unacceptable).

    Go to an apple store and the genius will replace you battery....

    It's happened to me twice in the past year.

    im gonna have to do this too. im at 64 cycles and only 40% battery health. at first i thought it might be the ac adapter since the connection on the magsafe was coming apart but its been like a week and i've recalibrated and it seems to be getting worse.
