    I checked the health of the battery through the coconut battery utility, it shows that it is only at 92%. What scares me the most is that my macbook is barely pushing 2 months.:(

    I'd bet that's not real...

    Try calibrating your battery.

    if anything that would make the health go down.

    OP: how many charge cycles does it have?

    Try calibrating often. Sometimes my health goes down to 92% and then comes back to 99%. Keep your hopes up.

    18 cycles. I ran off battery and charged it again, coconut battery reports it's at 97%, while istat reports 100% health.

    good to know you're doing fine now (ya, 18 cycles isn't near enough to get you that bad of health.... )
