MacBook Pro :: Battery Won't Charge To 100%?

ijust calibrated my batttery and my charger light is green which signifies its not charging anymore..and the icon at the top of my screen says charged..BUT Coconut battery says my current battery charge is as follows:

Current Battery Charge: 5807 mAh

Maximum Battery Charge: 5853 mAh


Current Battery Capacity: 5853 mAh

Original Battery Capacity: 5770 mAh


Additional Info:
Battery-Loadcycles: 6
Age of Mac: 7weeks
Charger Connected: yes
Battery is charging: no

so my battery charge is stuck at 99% and its been plugged in for the past 3 hours, and its saying my current battery capacity is higher than my original battery capacity.. is that normal?.. i cant seem to get my battery to 100percent and its not charging..

here is a screenshot of coconutbattery after calibration, i just got my macbook last week..should i be worried about the battery at all?

MacBook Pro :: Battery Doesn't Charge At 100%
Well, as the same title says, the battery of my macbook, when I'm charging it with the mac turned on, arrives to 99%, and when remaining 5 minutes, after this point, the time starts to increase, 6 minutes, 7 minutes, 10 minutes.... but doesn't charging at 100%. 

Note: Cocconut Battery shows that the battery maximum capacity is at 88% with just 10 loadcycles !

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Fully Charge Battery To 100%
I'm experiencing a battery problem in which my battery charge drops from 99% (fully charged; charge trickled off by 1%) all the way to somewhere around 12%. I've only experienced this phenomenon only once so far.

I'm quite shocked as to how my MacBook Pro's battery could lose its charge that fast; the charges were lost within a minute.

I recharged my battery and at 99%, System Profiler says it is still charging, but not yet fully charged and it has been like this perpetually for at least an hour.

My battery's full charge capacity is 5447mAh. However, during the charging, my charge remaining indicator never seem to climb past 5392mAh now. Charging status is still marked as 'Yes', and fully charged status is marked as 'No'. Charge cycle is at 13 at the moment.

Weirdly, when I plug out the adapter, the battery charge remaining goes past the 5392mAh mark into 5440+mAh.

I usually get green indicators on my MagSafe as an indication of the battery fully charged. Now I see amber light perpetually.

My MacBook Pro is the latest model, entry-level 13-inch, purchased in May 2010.

Has anyone experienced a similar problem?

Do I re-calibrate my battery? If so, how can I go about it, given that I cannot even do a full charge at all (stuck at 5392mAh out of 5447mAh)?

MacBook Pro :: Battery Won't Charge At All
So, my battery has been pretty bad for a while. It only holds about a third of it's original capacity. Recently I got a new power cord because my old one broke, and I started having a problem. I would plug in the brand new power cord and the computer wouldn't register it at all. It would just look like it wasn't plugged in. After some frustrated experimenting, I found out that taking out the battery and putting it back in would fix the problem for several hours. Because of this, I'm pretty sure this is a battery issue.

MacBook Pro :: I7 Battery Won't Charge Above 95%?
i have a a Brand new MBP 17" i7 with SSD, and for some reason after 9 days of using the MBP it won't charge over 95%. the charge indicator is green & the apple battery status says 95% but won't go any higher, the last 3 days it has maxed out at 97% and i can handle that but for it to drop so quickly is making me nervous, especially because i rely on it for work and i know i can't 'just replace' the battery.

I am a happy macbook air Rev.B owner but since I have bought my machine the charge won't last more than 2hrs 20 mins after a full cycle charge. I tried to reset the SMC but nothing changed.

MacBook Pro :: Battery Sometimes Won't Charge After Being Unplugged For A Few Hours?
I've tried two brand new adapters and neither work after my MBP is unplugged for a few hours and then plugged back in. Eventually it'll work again, but occasionally it doesn't acknowledge the power source. Will AppleCare cover this?

MacBook Pro 13' Battery Won't Charge
I'm using a MacBook Pro 13' and it's one year old. I bought it last year March. But after I purchased it, few months later, my laptop started playing up. First, it's faulty hardware, and i sent my laptop in to get a new hardware. Not long later, the battery won't charge. Whenever I touch or drop the adapter or connecter when it's charging, my laptop will shut down itself, and resetting. (when i tried to switch on, the date has changed) And it won't charge anymore. I get frustrated when ever I ask for repair and it seems nothing happen in Apple Care, and they refuse to repair it.

MacBook :: My Battery Won't Charge
My cat knocked over a glass of vodka/sprite onto my 13" white MacBook (the older version, from 2007 I believe). I let it dry out and took the battery out and everything and let it sit for a few days. It turned on when plugged in but the battery was dead. I purchased a new battery to replace it thinking it was just that the battery got ruined. However, the new battery I purchased will also not charge. It came partially charged and it worked and my MacBook had power without the power cord... until the battery died, and now i cannot get it to charge back up at all. Is this something that can be fixed? If so can I do it on my own or would I need to bring it to a Mac store, and what would that cost me? My concern about taking it in to get fixed is what it would cost me and if it is worth it seeing as my MacBook is pretty old.

MacBook :: Battery Won't Charge - Getting "Not Charging" In The Menu Bar Battery Status?
I have a Mac 10.6.8 running Snow Leopard. My battery won't charge: all I get is "Not Charging" in the menu bar battery status; the power adapter doesn't light up either. It's not a problem with the battery—when I put my battery in my friend's MacBook, it worked just fine. His battery, however, wouldn't charge either when it was in my computer. I have tried resetting the SMC several times, following the instructions exactly. I've reset the PRAM, run disk repair, and fixed disk permissions. I don't have the money to take it to a repairman—even if I did, I need my computer every day for work.

MacBook Air :: Battery Won't Hold Any Charge At All
I have a G4 powerbook 12" bought back in 2005. The battery no longer holds any charge at all (always on 0%) The reading for the battery is as follows.

100% (4,400mAh)
Current capacity 1408% (61,944mAh)
Current charge 1% (453mAh)
Charge cycles 93% (371)
Voltage 8.045.

Does this mean I have a connection problem or does the battery need changing?

MacBook Air :: Battery Won't Fully Charge?
I just got a new macbook air, it was working fine for a couple of days until yesterday.

The battery seems to be stuck at 98% - or was. I rebooted because I started to lag, and was updating, then I unplugged it and plugged it back in, then it went down to 97%. What confuses me is the fact it had been plugged in (while shut off), for about 8 hours and it should have been charged by the time I got around to using it. When I right click on the battery icon, it says the computer is fully charged.

MacBook Air :: Won't Hold Battery Charge
In the last two weeks, my Air will not hold after I Shut Down or Suspend, battery seems to work fine if I'm using it (drains normally). When I turn it on it's at 0%. Plugging it in will charge to 100% in ~30 minutes. Did SMC reset did not resolve problem. I don't believe there are any hardware issues.. Will a format fix this? All software is up-to-date.

MacBook :: Won't Turn On - Battery Wouldn't Charge
I don't have a warranty anymore. I got my Mac three and a half years ago. At first two days ago, I had a hard time turning it on. The charger didn't have a glowing green light. Then, once I got it on, the battery sign said it wasn't charging, had an X or something. But I got by by just leaving the charger on and it must have been charging some because I could use it for more hours than my usual 100% charged. My battery have always been damn awful because of the edition. But last night, I couldn't get it to turn on at all. The fan makes noises and so does the computer and sometimes, I can see very faintly that it goes to the sign-in. It could just be out of batteries and doesn't turn all the way on, just shuts down after a minute.

But since I don't have warranty, I am wondering how much it'd be to visit the Apple Store. And also, if anyone know of any way to fix it...could it be some other issue aside from the battery? This happened right after a storm that we had while I was at work and left it plugged on. But there was no lightning.

MacBook Aluminum :: Battery Won't Charge When I Switch Outlets?
I have the following problem with my macbook: It charges fine, but when I unplug the charger and plug it into a different outlet it doesn't charge, and if I try any other outlets it does not charge. What fixes the problem is that if I take out the battery and hold down the power button for ten seconds it will charge fine, I found this out at the apple store. However now I have to do this every time the battery decides to stop charging. Is this a hardware or logic board issue? I would love to get some help because this is very annoying and I think it may progress and get worse. Here is my power info:

Model Information:
Device name:ASMB016
Pack Lot Code:0002
PCB Lot Code:0000
Firmware Version:0110
Hardware Revision:0500
Cell Revision:0102
Charge Information:
Charge remaining (mAh):3966
Fully charged:No
Full charge capacity (mAh):4532
Health Information:
Cycle count:131
Battery Installed:Yes
Amperage (mA):-1438

MacBook :: 2.1 Won't Hold Charge But Battery Indicator Is Full
My wife's Macbook 2.1 is acting strangely. The Battery indicator led's are full (green) the charger led is also green and the software shows 100% battery is charged. After a couple of seconds after disconnecting the charger it switches off. I've tried resetting the SMC and this allowed a full nights use without the charger but on the next day it went back to only holding for a couple of seconds. I don't want to have to reset the SMC every day. It's running on 10.5.8 and is all up to date.

MacBook Pro :: Charger Broke, Battery Died, New Charger, Now Won't Charge?
the charger for my MBP broke and my laptop eventually ran out of juice. I went and bought a new charger tonight and I plugged it in. The LED in the MagSafe port isn't fully illuminated (very dim), but green, however blinks yellow/amber (also very dim). What does this mean? I've had it plugged in now for about 30 minutes and I still can't turn it on. I cleaned my MagSafe connector on my MBP but that did nothing.

Hardware :: New Battery Installed - Still Won't Charge
I just got a new to me macbook. The previous owner said that it would not hold a charge because it needed a new battery. Today I installed a new battery, but the symptoms are all still the same. The unit will work just fine when the power supply is hooked up. If you disconnect the power supply, the unit will instantly turn off. I looked up the "power" settings under system profiler and this is what it showed:

Model Information:
Serial Number:XXXX-YYYY-0-0
Charge Information:
Charge remaining (mAh):0
Fully charged:No
Full charge capacity (mAh):0
Health Information:
Cycle count:0
Battery Installed:No
Amperage (mA):0
Voltage (mV):0

AC Charger Information:

So based on that info, I'm thinking there must be some kind of internal problem with the mac. Opinions?

MacBook Pro :: New Battery But Health Isn't 100%
I reccently bought a new MBP late 2011. I took it out the box and charged it to 100% but the battery health was 94%(iStat) is it normal for a new battery to have 94% health? shouldn't it be 100%? I asked this question because when my brother bought his MBP early 2011, it had a 100% health out of the box.

I tried charging it with just the normal charger, and I even tried charing it with the extension wire! I am not sure if it is the charger, or my iBook.

The battery was almost dead when I put it to sleep (2% charge), but after leaving the adapter plugged in all day yesterday the battery indicator on the bottom only has one light glowing solid.I've removed the battery and tried to start it with just the power adapter, I've tried Ctrl+Cmd+Power Button, I've reset the PRAM, I've reset the SMC, and it still doesn't work.
