    So I received a replacement device from my company. previous macbook died. My replacement is a Macbook pro 13 - Retina/early 2015.

    Coconut battery shows this as the current health:

    Macbook Pro 13 - how can my battery be 'normal'?-battery.jpg

    So my question is... how could the Mac system report and coconutbattery consider such a wide disparity between 'full charge capacity' and 'design capacity' to be Good? in 184 cycles, this battery has dropped almost 1000mah of potential capacity?

    Anyone seen anything similar? is battery replacement my only option? I seem to be averaging around 7 hours of constant use.

    8 hours of "constant use" for a MacBook with a 3 year old battery is pretty darn good, in my opinion.

    Odd. The uploaded image isn’t showing in the mobile app.

    For those that can't see the image:

    The manufacture date of the battery is Feb 1 2017. The laptop mfg in the same month 2/20/2017.

    The problem i see is that the design capacity of the battery shows: 6559mah
    But the full charge capacity shows: 5653mah
    This means the battery can only get to 86.2% of what it should be when it's a max charge. Even with this it says the status of the battery is 'good'.

    Only 184 charge cycles.

    Has anyone else seen such a huge degradation in their battery with such low charge cycles?
