    I recalibrated my battery and the health jumped from 54% to 89% and I got an extra hour of battery life! I thought it would help a little but I wasn't expecting this much. I think the previous owner thought the battery was junk and that's why he sold it to me for 850 bucks, wow what a deal!

    I think in my case istat wasn't reading it proper because it hadn't been recalibrated.

    2.6 is the Leopard version. I think the "age of Mac" is still screwy, but everything else seems accurate. Still, I prefer Battery Health Monitor.
