Hi all,

Just got a new battery and I have not installed it as of yet.

Please forgive my ignorance, but do I need to charge a new macbook battery? If so, how long? Do I need to calibrate it, too?

Thank you for any input.

The battery didn't make the specified capacity the first time but did after the second.

Yes, charge it to 100% and then calibrate it. You might have to calibrate it twice, at least I did with my last iBook battery.
