    I couldn't wait for the new MBP so three weeks ago I decided to live with the buyer remorse I'm doomed to have and bought a new 13" pro. I'm not that impressed with the battery so I downloaded coconut and I'm only getting 96% capacity. Is this normal, I only have 14 cycles. I already calibrated my battery a week ago so I really don't want to do it again at least for another month.

    It will vary up and down. It's not exact. Sometimes it will show higher than it previously did. You're fine.

    Don't worry; the capacity fluctuates.

    I had this issue before. Sometimes if you haven't completely drained it or something like that it wont charge to 100% completely but the light will be green indicating its done. It does this to protect the battery or something. I honestly am drawing a blank but I know there have been other threads on this here.
