Thread: Battery Life

  1. #1
    Lightbulb Battery Life
    I got a new Macbook about a month ago and the battery is already down to 95% health, and I was wondering if this was normal?
    I only charge it when the Reserve Battery message pops up (about 4% remaining), but it is used frequently so gets charged nearly everyday. It has been run fully flat once.

    Can anyone help me please?

    That's really weird. I have had my macbook for about 9months and my battery is only at 96%. I don't know if I would wait to charge it when it reaches 4%. I usually charge mine every chance I get and it never gets anywhere near 30%. If anyone can clarify whether I'm right about the charging thing. But anyway, if that doesn't work for you then you might have a defective battery... Other than that I'm not too sure what else could be wrong.

    You should start calibrating your battery about once a month for good battery life. Check this out:
