    I ran my battery all the way down and recharged it just like the callibration directions said to and am now trying to drain it. My battery has dropped 25% in the past 30 minutes...all I have running is one tab of Safari and Wi-Fi. This can't be normal...

    Is anyone else experiencing this? :(

    MBP Battery Health

    My battery lasts about 2-3 hours when just web browsing. I have a 8 mo old MBP. WHat concerns me is the health. Have there been threads on this already? When new it was only 98% health and now it is 89% I have MB that is the same age and it's battery health is still 100%. APple store tells me this is normal.

    Apple did a diagnostics test and said my battery is fine and that it was "normal" when using only Safari for the battery to drop 35% in 30 minutes, then another 20% when sleeping for an hour and then 10% in 8 minutes while they were looking at it in the store. Umm...this doesn't sound right to me?

    Help!!! :-( What could this be?

    Yeah I also found it a little strange so I turned off the percentage display or I would always be looking at it.
