    hmmm your 5 mah over your original capacity. Mine fluctuates sometimes, itll go from just under the original rated capacity to sometimes 150mah over the original capacity. I suppose this is normal, but why does it happen?

    Had this one for a month. I use mine far too much... the joys of not being home much.

    43 cycles fluctuates between 99% and 100%

    My last one had 325 cycles at 98% health after 7 months.

    Did you really ask that question? (if you meant it please go look at the pic again!)

    Here's some details from my 33 month old macbook.

    1st the original battery just for fun!

    554 Cycles
    capacity 1293 mAh = 25% of original 5020 mAh.

    and my replacement from a few months back.
    183 cycles.
    5366 mAh = 100% (well more tecnically of 5000 mAh (yes it is not a official battery))

    1st battery performed excellent in my opinion, replacement is doing well!

    I believe it's when it's fully charged then you use it till there's no battery left.

    According to iStat- 15 cycles, 98% health.. Not sure where the 2% has gone considering my MB is only a few weeks old. Same stats with Coconut.

    Keep an eye on that. Its possible you got a bad battery. The battery mine came with was dropping health almost daily. Apple replaced it no questions asked.
