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.

That's 7.5 years on one battery. And I was occasionally abusive by leaving it plugged in too long. I am buying another (1st replacement) now. Hope this one lasts half as long.

    I don't know what it is, but every replacement battery I have bought for my macbook pro does not seem to last anywhere near as lon I don't know what it is, but every replacement battery I have bought for my macbook pro does not seem to last anywhere near as long as my original battery. In the past year I've had to buy two and this last battery failed after a month. The second battery I had expanded and almost blew up, the metal area completely separated. That has to be dangerous. I called after this last battery failed after a month and apple said there was nothing they could do for me and that I needed to buy a new one, again. Frustrated is an understatement.

It's the best computer I've ever owned, but I cannot say that about the battery. I'm on my third battery for this machine. I maintain them and calibrate properly, but I've never had one last more than 18 months. I boot up today to see the 'Service Battery' message again. I guess it's time for battery 4 or maybe a new machine at this point. -_-

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.
