    I've got an early 2009 macbook pro, and I've started encountering serious battery life issues. I'm still under AppleCare, and I'm wondering if there's any chance of getting my battery replaced?

    I've gone through 301 cycles, and my battery health is down to 34%. Will they replace it? What other information do I need to know?

    Thanks!

    Give AppleCare a call and ask; they will advise you.

    FWIW, I had the battery of my late-2007 MBP replaced under AppleCare warranty as it was down to 15% after 200 cycles.

    From memory, there is a figure at which they warrant the battery should still be after 300 cycles.
