    I need some help. My MBP core duo, wont charge past 78%. It display's the "(Not Charging)" message. I have looked through my console logs for some reason, and I cannot find anything useful. The battery is new and only has 16 cycles on it. Has anyone else heard of older MBP's doing this, or can offer some advice?

    Take it back to Apple, they'll replace it for a new one.

    Have you calibrated it yet?

    It's just a suggestion. I'd hate that a new 16-cycle battery would need calibrating, but perhaps that would help.
