from my dealings with laptops calibrating the battery will not increase the
Battery's percentage of charge .. so if you started with a 96% capacity
after a calibration it will not increase .. in fact would expect it to decrease if
Battery's are disposable and loose the capability to charge to the full
capacity every time you use it ..
Apple suggests to calibrate so that you exercise the battery and so that the
system really knows what the battery is capable of like a benchmark.
as far as being only 5 week old and having lost 4% I don't know if that
is a lot .. Have never had a brand new battery ..
hope this helps.
