MacBook Pro :: 61 Cycles 99% Battery Life Good?

Jan 29, 2010

I've never full drained the battery below "50%" 61 times so I don't know why it says I've had 61 cycles. I always leave my laptop attached to the AC adapter. Is 61 Cycles with 99% battery life good for a 5 month old laptop?

MacBook :: 91% Battery Life After 30 Charge Cycles?

Mar 18, 2010

I noticed that my MacBook doesn't run as long as it used to before I have to charge it again. I downloaded CoconutBattery, and it tells me that my battery is down to 91% of its original capacity after only 30 charge cycles. It's 5 months old according to CB, and I bought it new on Dec. 24th. (It's a Unibody White...) Is this normal, or should I take it into the Apple Store for a replacement?

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Charge Battery / Charging Stucks At 99 Percent With Service Battery

Aug 20, 2010

I calibrated my battery for the first time since Dec. When I plugged it in this morning, it took 3 hours to charge all the way, and now it's stuck on 99% full, 0:00 till completely charged, and I'm getting an error when I click on the battery in the menu bar that says "Service Battery". When I click on the error, it tells me that it may not be functioning properly and to take it to an authorized apple service retailer. Before I waste 2 hours by going to the Apple store and back, has anyone else had this problem, and is there a way to fix it without having it looked at?

MacBook :: Battery Cycles?

Dec 2, 2010

My Macbook's battery has done 902 cycles and is on 92% health.

I was just wondering - even though I know it's impossible to predict the life-span of a computer battery - a) how accurate that reading is (I use the iStat Pro widget) and b) ignoring the health reading, is it time to buy a new battery when it hits 1000 cycles?

The health has gone down from 100% to 92% in the space of about 3 months? Maybe more. Is that a sign that I should change it?

MacBook Pro :: Cycles On And Off When Using Battery

Aug 23, 2014

The MacBook Pro is a 13' unit. it was replaced with a SSD drive.  The battery has 327 charging cycles on it.  Sometimes when using battery only the machine will start to boot up, will get the logo then immediately shut down, screen goes black then the process continues, once I connect the AC power the Macbook boots correctly.  Should also mention that the circuit board that controls the charging of the battery was also replaced (outside of warranty period) several months ago as well.

MacBook Pro :: Battery Capacity 87% After 51 Cycles

Sep 3, 2010

My AppleCare expires on Monday September 6th, and I am wondering if my 87% capacity at 51 battery cycles suggests I should visit an Apple Store this weekend? The closest store is around 25 miles away, so if I would be wasting my time, I would rather not take the trip. My concern is mostly based on my warranty ending. This is a 2009 13" MBP.

MacBook :: Battery Load Cycles?

Jan 27, 2009

Just wondering, but how rare is it to have a battery that lasts 3 times longer than the "rated cycle amount"? Apparently this battery should have been dead 600 cycles ago... I am finally now noticing a slight loss in overall battery life.

I have used this MacBook 100% of the time since the day I have gotten it over two years ago. Is this why it has lived so long?

MacBook :: Brand New Battery - 15 Cycles Already?

Feb 26, 2009

My macbook battery broke 500 cycles, and the battery life was at about half what it used to be so I ordered what was described as a brand new battery from Westronics, through Amazon. I put the new battery in the machine and checked System Profiler, and it is telling me that the battery has 15 cycles on it already. iStat Nano says the same thing. Is this normal for a new battery to have cycles on it already? Or did I not get a new battery? I just want to make sure I got what I paid for.

MacBook Pro :: 87% Battery Capacity After 56 Cycles?

Mar 1, 2010

I get ready for the next disappointment tomorrow (maybe no MBP update) and looking out for a MBP at eBay. I've found a good one (August 2009) 2.53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 500GB HDD etc. for round about 900� (1.200$) (in Germany we pay 1533� for this model so round about 2088$). The guy sent me a screenshot of the battery capacity which is 87% (4762mAh) after 56 loadcycles. Is that acceptable? IMO it's a bit too low - what do you think? Maybe I'm going to buy a AppleCare Protection Plan afterwards ... would the battery be covered?

MacBook Pro :: Battery Dies Around 50 Percent?

Oct 10, 2010

The battery on my MBP (2007 2.33 Core 2 Duo) has started to die, just like the three others that came before it. It seems like it's only been a year or so since I got a new battery. Yesterday, I was using it unplugged and the computer shut off when the battery was around 58%. I have never seen a battery shut off that early. The worst I had seen before that was a previous battery that would die around 35%.

A couple questions:

1. Is there something I am doing that is causing my batteries to keep dying so quickly? An Apple Genius told me that keeping the computer plugged in all the time can burn out the battery. I don't really want to bother putting the computer through unnecessary charge cycles to keep up the battery life.

2. Is there any way to recoup some of the lost battery life of my current battery, or is it just dead?

3. In replacing the battery, should I buy another Apple battery from the website, or are there better quality 3rd party MBP batteries?

4. On a side bar, I am thinking about purchasing a new MBP, but I am worried that the battery will have the same problem, and it will be much more of a hassle to fix because everything is internal now. I hate having to hand my computer over to Apple Care for a whole day and be without it.

MacBook Pro :: Battery Health Only 89 Percent

Nov 3, 2010

So I bought a macbook pro 13" about a month ago. I've been running coconut battery tests on it and the battery health is only at 89%. This is super upsetting to me. I went to the apple store and they ran their diagnostic test only to tell me that my battery is within specification, so they wouldn't replace it. The health they calculated was 91%.

What should I do? This seems unfair to me.
Coconut battery stats:
Battery capacity: 5141 mAh
Original battery capacity: 5770 mAh
Battery load cycles: 27
Age of your mac: 4 months

MacBook Pro :: Why Battery Capacity Too Low (33 Percent)

May 7, 2010

I've had my Macbook Pro for just over 2 years and recently bought one of the 2010 models. I'm about to sell my old one but when I downloaded Coconut Battery, I saw that my battery holds a lot less charge than it did when it was new: Have I been doing something wrong or is it just low because the laptop is 2 years old? If it's something I've been doing, I don't want to make the same mistake with my new one.

I bought a new battery for my sisters new used MacBook Pro. The instructions with the new battery was not to charge the new battery until it's was down to 2%. And, how many hours should she expect the battery to last until it needs to be charged? This is with normal web surfing with some streaming.

MacBook Pro :: Late 2008 15 Battery Life - Watching Movie From Hard Disk Use Less Battery Than DVD?

Nov 11, 2009

i just ordered a late 2008 macbook pro 15 with the dual GPUs (9400m and 9600m GT) and I'm a little worried about the battery life.

-What can I expect if just doing normal every day stuff (web surfing mostly?)

-does watching a movie off of the hard disk use less battery than watching it off a DVD? Is there a big difference?

I'm not a big gamer but would like to have the horsepower to play a game should one come out that I want. I'm also not a big traveler so battery times are only of average importance.

Basically, I'm asking if I made a good purchase considering I have only average concerns for both battery and game performance. They had the new 7 hour battery 15" macbook pro for the same price but it doesn't have the dual GPUs.

MacBook :: Battery With 828 Charge Cycles - Unsafe?

Nov 30, 2010

I received a Black 2.4GHz MacBook that I bought on eBay a few days ago to add to my collection. The battery reports 828 charge cycles, and has about 82% of it's original charge capacity, and still lasts a good 2.5 hours. What I want to know is, is it unsafe to use it like this? Apple Battery FAQ doesn't not really say when to replace the battery, besides when it doesn't hold that good of a charge anymore.
Should I be worried?
