    So my MBP battery is 14 months old, and has been above 95% the whole time, but about a month ago it just randomly dropped to 60% - 68% capacity. Now i have 80 cycles on it, and it will randomly go back up to 95%, which is where it should be for the age of the battery. Since Apple states that batteries should stay above 80% for 300 cycles, do you all think that if i go to the apple store and show them, that i could get a replacement battery?

    It's out of the standard warranty period. Do you have extended AppleCare purchased? Have you been calibrating your battery monthly?

    I calibrate, however when the capacity falls to the low amount, it just goes back to that value. I did find on the apple website a macbook pro battery update that explains how MBP made for early 06 to mid 07ish had some bad batteries which extend the battery warranty to two years.

    think it falls under this:
