    So I had my first battery replaced a couple of months after I first got my MBP due to horrible battery health (it was down to something like 60% health with under 50 cycles). It was replaced with one which ended up just flat out dying on me about 2 weeks later. I thought it was a bigger problem with my labtop and took it in, but they said it was just the battery and I got it back a few days later with a new battery and good working order. It's been 10 months since then, and now my battery is down to 11% health with 177 cycles. It only lasts about 20 minutes. Now my warranty ran out about 6 months ago, so am I stuck buying a new battery? This is clearly yet another defective battery to be this drained with so few cycles on it, but will apple do anything?

    Call Apple, explain your situation, answer their questions, receive new battery.
