i'm down to 48% battery health. Can i complain and get a new one you think?
I believe it's at 50% I'm sure you could get it replaced.
i guess everyone saw my battery thread with the coconut program
How old is it?
My battery was pretty shitty after a couple of years of using it, but I thought that's what happened to all batteries.
i'm down to 87% after only a couple months of getting my old battery replaced with a new one.
I've had 245 load cycles.
92% after 308 cycles here.. pbg4 15"
ibook g4. going on 30 months old now. i'll try for it when i'm back near an apple store. 319 load cycles and 48% left.
How can I check the battery life ?
2 months old and 99% ... I guess I'm still too new...
goto the apple in the menubar>click about this mac>more info>goto power under hardware, scroll down to battery information>divide the full charge capacity by 4400 (or w.e. it is your batteries mah is stated) and multiply it by a 100.. now you got your current capacity!>for charge cycle, it simply states what is on there...
of-course you can use coconut battery, but math is fun!
I followed your steps, but when I looked under the "Hardware" heading, there was nothing that said "Battery". All that is there is Memory, PCI/AGP Cards, ATA, etc.
So I downloaded Coconut Battery, and when I go to lauch it, it bounces once in the dock, and then nothing.
What the heck?
Edit: It's because I don't have 10.4. But still, why can't I look at my Battery Info?
also the widget istat pro lets you know.
sorry. go to hardware>Power than scroll down to where it says battery informatioN!
My powerbook doesn't have a "power" listing under hardware either. I'm guessing older machines don't monitor the battery details (besides the % remaining). Or maybe it's simply a tiger-only thing.
My 17 in PB battery.
Look under "POWER" for the battery info.
