    I seem to have the same problem, only it seems my macbook is a little older than yours. However it's jumped from having 80% health on tiger to 62% in two weeks. It's a little disturbing.

    Your battery may have just got a bad charge. I've had experiences when I had a full battery and my timer says I only had an hour left, the battery health was poor (25%). I was furious and decided I would just let the battery die all the way and recharge it fully again, hopefully fixing it. However, after it got down to about 85% the battery health went back to good (95%) and I had 3 and a half hours remaining. So it just seemed like the top of my battery just got a bad charge. I would just recommend running your battery all the way out and recharge it fully again. I have 67 cycles.

    Yipes, definitely seems like that could be an issue. As someone suggested, let it die out entirely and give it a fresh charge.

    Either way, for that few cycles, I'd be very concerned. My battery is at 187 cycles, 78% health.
