As my macbook in about a year old I thought I would calibrate my battery. After fully charging the battery this morning I have been using it on battery, surfing, email stuff etc. I have been running on battery now for 6 hours and there is still 13% on the battery indicator. How impressive is that.

check out this little app Coconut Battery

according to coconut my battery is now running at 91% of its original capacity after 11 months of use and 137 load cycles.
