    I took delivery of a brand new MBP 13" base model last week, direct from Apple.

    I installed my apps, one of which is battery health, and as I've checked it over the last few days, it's gone from 100% when new, to now sitting at 95%.

    Bare in mind, the laptop has now 5 charge cycles on, so I wouldn't have expected this to move.

    Is this normal, or do I potentially have a defective battery?

    Many thanks.

    Why would you say that? To the OP, battery health fluctuations are normal and 95% is nothing to be worried about.

    well you could try callibrating your battery if need be bbut i guess it doesnt make much of a difference on the new batteries just simply use it of the battery till 5% and then charge back a few more times and it will settle to a better % incase it still keeps going down then take it in for a diagnosis.
    the last two macbooks i had on the first 10 charges it would fluctuate from 92%-100% my current retina which is at 7 battery cycles is at 100%

    I previously had a MBA, I'm more than happy with the MBP.


    Thanks for that, I'll see how it goes.
