    3 months, still at 100%. however it is reading like 5288 for capacity, even though the battery is rated 5200.

    i remember it being like 5400 on the capacity a month ago

    How exactly accurate are these little programs though? :dunno:

    My macbook is 6 months old and it's registering only 4350 mAh and 83% capacity. I've gone through 71 load cycles. :wtc:

    The programs just report the status from the battery's microcontroller or the pmu (not sure).

    I have no idea how accurate that is.

    Fairly accurate. The batteries keep track of this stuff to prevent things such as overcharging which would be baaad.

    On the flip side, you have to take its word for it cause there isn't much you can do. I guess you could try recalibrating.
