    Hello folks,
    is this even possible to get this ********* "Service Battery" in just 198 battery loadcycles and less than 20 months macbook pro?

    i'm a fair user, i use it once every 2 to 3 days, its like a brand new one, the weird thing is the coconut battery says current capacity 54% which means i nearly lost half of the battery performance in just 198 charge cycles. :(

    i've tried to check it over another platform, a windows 7 bootcamp and the battery info says the same :(

    any help or solution for this would be much appreciated guys :(

    It seems like your battery is bad. You should get it serviced.

    To answer your question, it is absolutely possible. It could even be a manufacturing defect.
