13 inch Macbook battery dead after 9 months
I am not very impressed with the longeivity of the latest generation of Macbook batteries. My laptop purchased 9 months ago cannot hold any charge having declined in capacity sharply over the preceding month. £99 to spend every 9 months just to have mediocre battery capacity really is very poor performance. Hope this is just a bad batch, but we are hostages to Apples battery provision if we want our laptops to remain mobile. …

Apple Macbook Battery
I guess these batteries are now supplied by different manufacturers who have different ideas about performance and longevity. My 2 008 Macbook with its OEM battery now lasts for about 1.5 hours, it shows a charge cycle of just 274 and tells me to service the battery. So, and I bought a new battery from Apple about 14 months ago, it now last for about 3 hours and shows a cycle count of 36. This battery isnt going to last much longer.
Compare that to my Daughters Macbook from 2007. The battery lasts over 6 hours and shows a cycle count of 1093, condition normal.
Doesnt add up does it?
