    Coconut Battery
    I am having problems with my MacBook battery so I downloaded coconut battery but now I am not sure how to understand the stats it gives me.
    Here is how it reads:
    Battery Charge
    current charge: -1 mAh
    maximum charge: -1 mAh
    100%

    battery Capacity
    Current Capacity: -1 mAh
    design capacity: 5020 mAh
    0%

    Details
    Mac model: macBook 4,1
    Age of your Mac: 41 months
    Battery loadcycles: 671
    Battery temperature 30.5 C
    Battery Power usage 0.0 Watt

    I think I just need a new battery but is there a way to tell that is the problem for certain? I just bought a new charger and batteries are expensive so I don't want to keep putting money into this computer if there is a bigger problem with it.

    Thank You

    Max charge 6726 mAh
    Current capacity 6726 mAh

    According to coconut battery, your battery is "toast". Since you have more than 600 cycles on a battery that was only designed to give 300, consider yourself lucky. Yes, you need a new battery. And, don't buy a cheap knock off battery or you'll be replacing it again.
