      Dead, dead, dead battery !!! :-(

      I bought my MacBook Pro on August 2006 and my battery crashed on November 15th. I like very much my MacBook Pro but the battery is a disaster...

      Battery gets very, very hot, in my opinion, but great battery life so far

      I think the battery life is pretty good on the MacBook Pro. I was on a three-hour flight the other day and my Mac battery died right before landing. Other PC us I think the battery life is pretty good on the MacBook Pro. I was on a three-hour flight the other day and my Mac battery died right before landing. Other PC users around me had to shut down because of battery issues 45 minutes before. After the flight, I actually had one business person ask me what kind of computer I have and questions about the battery b/c he couldn't believe it lasted so long. However, in my opinion, this battery gets extremely hot and more so than any PC that I have worked on or the PowerBook I had until I upgraded to this one. So, be sure to wear pants or use a pillow if you're going to use your laptop in your lap! The design is great for the MacBook Pro and so is the battery, I just wish they would've used a larger fan in the MacBook so it would keep this thing cool. I think it's more a flaw of the computer design and less of the battery, though.

I had read the reviews here and decided to look around at third party options, however the reviews for those seemed to be just as bad and I figured at least if I bought the genuine article I would have some decent recourse. Well just after the warranty expired the battery conked out completely after only 63 cycles. This time I have gone for a third party battery for half the price and a 50% longer warranty.

      Just a little comparison info.

      I got my Macbook Pro 15" in Spring 2011. I do a lot of video editing etc with it, as well as games, etc. The reason I'm writing this is to give someone you an i I got my Macbook Pro 15" in Spring 2011. I do a lot of video editing etc with it, as well as games, etc. The reason I'm writing this is to give someone you an idea how how poorly/well you treated your computer, or to compare your battery life with mine. After almost four years a consistent use, I'm at 752 cycles and a full charge is at 5449 mAh out of 5400. When I play games/edit, it's plugged in for hours. I've let it die from power countless times, and as I've read thats not good for the battery. Of course, after years of use the battery is bound to hold less of a charge, but I cringe at the thought of what some of you are doing with your computers. I would go into detail of what you should do, but its common sense. I don't think Apple's complaining though, as they've made tons of money off a product that lasts if you use it right.

      To calibrate the battery: Plug in the MagSafe power adapter and fully charge the MacBook or MacBo To calibrate the battery: Plug in the MagSafe power adapter and fully charge the MacBook or MacBook Pro battery until the light on the MagSafe connector changes to green and the Battery icon in the menu bar indicates that the battery is fully charged. Allow the battery to rest in the fully charged state for two hours or longer. You may use your computer during this time as long as the power adapter is plugged in. Disconnect the power adapter with the computer on and start using it with battery power. When the battery’s charge gets low, you’ll see the low battery warning dialog on the screen. Continue to keep your computer turned on until it goes to sleep. Save your work and close all applications when the battery’s charge gets low and before the computer goes to sleep. Turn off the computer or allow it to sleep for five hours or longer. Reconnect thepower adapter and leave it connected until the battery is fully charged. You may use your computer during this time.

      Best Answer:

      You sure can! I don't recommend leaving it on the charger all the time though. Charge fully to 100 You sure can! I don't recommend leaving it on the charger all the time though. Charge fully to 100%, unplug and run it until about 10% and then repeat the charging process. This will help the battery have a longer life. I've left for retina Macbook Pro unplugged for a week while working on school assignments between work and home and the battery is still at 30%.
