You'll see one of the following status indicators:
Normal: The battery is functioning normally. 
Replace Soon: The battery is functioning normally but holds less charge than it did when it was new. You should monitor the health of the battery by checking the battery status menu periodically.
Replace Now: The battery is functioning normally but holds significantly less charge than it did when it was new.

Service Battery: The battery isn’t functioning normally. You can safely use your Mac when it's connected to an appropriate power adapter, but you should take it to an Apple Store or Apple-authorized service provider as soon as possible.
