    I ordered a battery from ebay and i just got it today... i dont like what i see about it so far and if the answer to this question is no then im definetly returning it full of complaints. im using coconut battery and it's telling me the maximum charge capacity is 5500 when the guy said it was 6000.... but im wondering if when you get new batteries the current battery capacity should match the original battery capacity?

    what i have right now is this:
    Current Battery Capacity: 5308
    Original Battery Capacity: 5500

    is this an alright battery?

    Yes, your battery is fine. The full charge capacity varies from one battery to the next, and also varies over the life of the battery. So does battery health. My battery health was down as low as 93% last week... it's back up to 96% this week. Nothing to worry about.
