    My battery life has been terrible and the health reading seems to back it up. This isn't normal...right?

    Definitely doesn't look right. Did you discharge it completely, charge it back up and check again?

    You know what has become a near normal?

    People starting threads without a descriptive title.

    How hard is that? What if everyone used such worthless titles?

    Yes, I was click baited into this thread.

    But great success! I sympathise with Nmeed and also suggest a trip to Apple.

    More importantly you just sold me CoconutBattery.
    89% health after 788 cycles. I shall now fastidiously check it -

    It's either a defective battery or you let it drop to 0 too many times and you ate up the health. Take it in, let Apple run a test on the battery.

    I've had the battery drop to the point that the phone turns off quite a few times on various iPhones over the years--certainly not something regular or anything like that, but also not something that is extremely rare either--and it doesn't seem like there has been much of a noticeable effect on the battery life from that. It's certainly something that is worse for the battery than not having it drop to such low levels, but I'm not really sure it has that much of a noticeable effect if it does happen here and there at times.

    Here and there definitely won't significantly harm the battery, but if you let it die completely ever 2-3 charge cycles, it will eventually eat away at the battery. Not a scientific test, but my GF is really bad about letting her iPad 2 die and stay dead for a day or 2. Me on the other hand has never let my iPad 2 die. After 4.5 years, my iPad had 200 cycles and 101% capacity remaining. Her iPad on the other hand had 71 cycles and her health was 78%. Again after 4.5 years. So I think after years it will really eat away. But this is my observation.
