I've had my macbook for about a week and I checked coconut battery today to see these readings. They can't be correct (saying that apple can't be 2000 years old...), but why do I get this for my reading? It just seems really strange. Has anybody else had this problem?

Have you tried turning the comp off and back on?

Try it and look at coconut again. If it's the same, your battery memory chip is probably bad.

Yeah, I tried that. The chip cannot be bad as iStatPro sees the battery information correctly. For some reason, though, the other app won't work correctly... either that or -1mAh is 100% health...

Try deleting the file in directory /Users/myname/Library/Preferences/com.coconut-flavour.coconutBattery.plist

where "myname" is the name of your home folder.

Clearly your battery is from the 25th century and coconut can't understand it's superior technology!
