      Cycle your Battery

      If you follow the instuctions in the manual, and cycle your battery once a week. You can get about 4 to 5 hrs of battery life out of your mac book pro. i tried If you follow the instuctions in the manual, and cycle your battery once a week.

      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.

      2yr old Battery - Bulging and Useless

      Not impressed. Have an early 2008 MacBook Pro which I bought new from Apple. The battery lasted over 6 years. Got a replacement battery from Apple and it ha Not impressed. Have an early 2008 MacBook Pro which I bought new from Apple. The battery lasted over 6 years. Got a replacement battery from Apple and it has lasted two years and is now bulging and useless. The computer has only had light use during the last two years so this should never happen. It should be a warranty issue where Apple replace them at no cost, but I have a terrible feeling it won't be. Common on Apple, you need to sort this out. Very poor performance for an Apple OEM product. For those of us who have batteries that end up bulging, it is simply dangerous.

      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.

      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%.
