Why is my new battery's health dropping so quickly!?
I installed this battery on 2/27 and by 3/1, after only 5 cycles its health had already dropped to 96% from 100% which was showing upon installation. Im at 7 cycles now and its still at 96%, but I am concerned having just bought/installed it.
Battery Health Monitor, coconutBattery and iStat Pro all show it having 96% capacity.
Im a self employed designer and this laptop is my only machine and active a lot. Its mostly plugged in during the day while at my desk, but at night while away from the desk I've intentionally let it fully drain several times now.
I have read your article "Zen and the Art of Battery Life" so it seems Im going about its usage correctly.
So I guess my questions are:
1. Wear this fast can't be normal, right?
2. At what point does the warranty cover a replacement?
3. And if it ever is replaced will the replacement be covered for 6 months from that time as well?
Is this a good question?
