    My MBP wont hold a full charge. The red light on the cable is always red and never goes green anymore.

    I have the app coconut and its saying 71 load cycles 21 month old

    current batt capacity 4833 mAh
    original batt cap 5500 mAh

    does this mean its time for a new batt?

    With only that many cycles it appears to be on target with the maximum capacity. Is it taking a long time or is it just no charging? Have you tried letting it charge overnight with the computer sleeping/shutdown?
