    How old is your Macbook and how many load cycles do you have?
    Most of us live by Coconut Battery or some other variation, so lets hear it

    How old (in weeks) is your Mac, and how many load cycles do you have associated with the battery

    6 Weeks
    23 Load Cycles

    I guess ultimately this thread is dedicated to people who use Coconut Battery. Its a diagnostic tool used to determine battery capacity and things of that nature... It has the number of load cycles and age of your mac.

    you can get it here: http://www.coconut-flavour.com/coconutbattery/

    Load cylces, as far as I understand them, are basically the number of times your battery has been fully charged and discharged.

    Specs:
    MacBook(W) 2Gb, 2Ghz & Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, Now my Apple glows colours, Red Apple and Green Leaf.
    You dont need coconut battery to see the load cycles. It's al taken care of by the OS itself.

    I personally use the System Profiler app in Utilities. Click the 'Power' section and look there.
    Once there you'll see something like the following:
    System Power Settings:

    AC Power:
    System Sleep Timer (Minutes): 0
    Disk Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Display Sleep Timer (Minutes): 20
    Automatic Restart On Power Loss: No
    Wake On AC Change: No
    Wake On Clamshell Open: Yes
    Wake On LAN: Yes
    Display Sleep Uses Dim: Yes
    Battery Power:
    System Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Disk Sleep Timer (Minutes): 10
    Display Sleep Timer (Minutes): 2
    Automatic Restart On Power Loss: No
    Wake On AC Change: No
    Wake On Clamshell Open: Yes
    Display Sleep Uses Dim: Yes
    Reduce Brightness: Yes

    Battery Information:

    Battery Installed: Yes
    First low level warning: No
    Full Charge Capacity (mAh): 4843
    Remaining Capacity (mAh): 4645
    Amperage (mA): -1467
    Voltage (mV): 12199
    Cycle Count: 28

    AC Charger Information:

    Connected: No
    Charging: No
    Overall another fine and good reason to Trash coconut battery.
