    Battery health at 91% at 4 months old
    Hey guys, I had iStat pro installed and the battery health was 93%. However upon reading various threads i downloaded coconut battery app. Now here are the results:

    Current battery capacity: 5973mAh
    Original battery capacity: 6500mAh

    Battery Load Cycles: 44
    Age of your Mac: 4 Months

    question is, is this normal, for what I do?

    Watching DVD's
    Listening to music via iTunes
    Web browsing
    Streaming video's on Youtube
    Occasional work in Neo Office

    Specs:
    MacBook
    Ignore anything that iStat Pro reports.
    It is wildly inaccurate and a waste of time.


    For information about your battery, look here:
