You should only calibrate your battery once a month or so. And don't let the battery run down so low. If you can keep it at 100% about 1/3rd of the time and keep it above 40% the other 2/3rds of the time, you will have a great battery.

Calibrating it doesn't give you better battery life, just better readings, which is important for you but not for the battery.

That being said, I am at 49 cycles and my battery health is 100% according to iStat Pro. My battery charge is 38% and charging (I've been at school all day and only started charging back up right now).

If I was you I'd be upset about my battery life, too, but I wouldn't take it to Apple because they would not be willing to help you. Forget about the 4% battery life you lost and focus on taking care of the 96% you have. Follow my suggestions and you will have a good battery!
