Is it time for me to get a new battery? I don't seem to get much out of it these days.
Yea, I would replace it.
Over 500 cycles and more than two years old, it seems to be doing very well considering.
I got my MacBook today, and look at the max battery capacity.. is this normal?
i think mines holding up extremely well considering....
Yea that is!!! I'm amazed...any secrets you can share?
Thats truly impressive. You are mighty lucky.
well, tbh, i abuse it alot. i use 20% or so then recharge. use 12% recharge. i keep the battery in when the powers connected for weeks at a time. tbh, i dont look after it in the slightest, but with other things, like my old ipod, i looked after the battery so so well and it lost its charge pretty quick.
maybe im just lucky with my PB battery?!
How about my circ. 2002 TiBook battery. Holds a 2.5 hour charge.
Edit: I dual boot Linux and OS X, but mainly run Linux. Perhaps that is the secret?
Sounds like what I do yet mine is not holding up anywhere near as good as yours!
You guys have some mighty good batteries! I'm off to the apple store to buy a new one.
*EDIT* Wow!!!! The G4 15" PB battery has really bad reviews – any other options?
I just ordered one of these instead of the lousy Apple ones.
Seems to have some good reviews:
They also have a battery conditioner which looks good but too pricey for me at the moment.
