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
QUOTE Thanks

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


For information about your battery, look here:
