    Do you keep it plugged in most of the time? That could be the problem.

    I'm on the third replacement for my 08 MBP, and it's already at 86% with only 72 cycles.

    Umm.. I thought that if you buy a new battery from them you get a 1 year warranty on it? You've had way too low number of cycles, just ask for a replacement.

    My 2010 MBP has 2 cycles, and supposedly 100% health ;)

    per Applecare...if i didn't actually purchase the replacement battery last year, the 1 year warranty does not apply. pretty shi&*y if you ask me. they authorized the free replacement last year, but won't back it up past 90 days. i'll buy a new one and at least i know i'll have a one year warranty on it.
