    Hi, had my MPB for a week and a half now. I have noticed in istat menues that it capacity has been increasing, yesterday it was 6915 now 6945 against the design of 6900, I thought these things could only go down?

    Thanks for any comments, this maybe be normal or is something wrong?

    See attachment.

    It could be reporting inaccurate results. But if you take good care of your battery, then it could go up.

    Same thing happened to me

    This, your battery is just not broken in yet so a program like that and your menubar battery indicator may not be entirely accurate.

    I thought of that. However last week when I got it I calibrated it.I will do it again, but I am on holiday now.


    Thanks

    Be sure you follow the actual calibration steps. Many people think calibration is simply draining and recharging the battery. See the link I posted for details on doing it right.
