    Just wondering what the norm is in terms of where my battery levels should be. When I first received my MBA 2 weeks ago, the full charge mAh capacity was around 7100. Now after 6 cycles, the full charge max mAh is 6678.

    Is this normal for the max to drop so much after only 6 cycles? Just wondering what others are experiencing in terms of battery performance.

    The design capacity is 6700mAh so that 7100mAh wasn't even normal. 6678mAh sounds normal, mine is 6660mAh after 12 cycles
