You can get about 4 to 5 hrs of battery life out of your mac book pro. i tried cycleing the battery and it really works and restores the batteries life. But the key is you have to do it 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 rig 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.

  • Why do Apple batteries create a confined negative pressure?

Regardless, I'm am A "confined negative pressure" is what happens with a straw, but Apple's forum police will remove that word... Regardless, I'm am buying battery number three or four for my MBP. I can see replacing batteries as they are pretty much a consumable. But when the battery kills itself so it won't even hold a charge long enough to replace the power cord that you accidentally pulled out, something is wrong. And the replacement battery is $129, give us a break. Either make the battery worth $129 or drop the price.

Come on Apple... Kick your design engineers in their butts, and tell them to give your customers the best battery for a laptop on the market!!!

    Enough is enough already, the technology for batteries is out there, don't make us send you links to them!!

  • Over priced, for little life.

    I'm disappointed at the price of the replacement battery. I have done the cycling that is recommend for the battery ( fully charge I'm disappointed at the price of the replacement battery. I have done the cycling that is recommend for the battery ( fully charged, let it run till dead).Apple should address the issue that loyal customers should get a newer style battery, that hold longer charge. I'd be fine paying for a battery that will work longer in the day.

It is recommended however, that you take the Macbook off the charger as soon as it reaches a full charge so as not to shorten the life of your battery. Leaving it plugged in constantly can actually damage the battery long term.

    Realistically this battery will last around 3 hours as long as there is not heavy usage of the CPU o Realistically this battery will last around 3 hours as long as there is not heavy usage of the CPU or GPU. So as long as you are doing basic things like e-mail, web surfing, etc you should get decent life out of it. Also turning down brightness, running only 1 program at a time, and turning off bluetooth will all help preserve battery life. Also running it in cycles and using a battery keeper program will help to extend the life. I am a photographer and if I am doing light photo editing I can pull 2-4 hours out of this battery as long as I adhere to the aforementioned guidelines.

    Just plug in your ac adapter and use the computer. Ensure the battery if fully charged before using Just plug in your ac adapter and use the computer. Ensure the battery if fully charged before using it on battery power and let it drain all the way down before the next charge. From then on, use the battery about once a week till it is all the way down and you are getting those "Save your work now" messages" and let it charge all the way up again. You can use the computer while it is charging. All of this is from the a recent Genius Bar appointment where they told me my battery was failing for lack of use and that it had a very low number of cycles on it and that was not good for it.
