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. …

Only lasted 4 months
Over the years I have bought several $130 batteries for my 2007 macbook pro. Normally each one only lasts a year or less and NEVER Over the years I have bought several $130 batteries for my 2007 macbook pro. Normally each one only lasts a year or less and NEVER holds a charge for more than 2 hours, even with minimal use. My most recently purchased battery only lasted 4 MONTHS before it would no longer hold a charge and informed me that it needs to be replaced!!! How long will it take apple to make a decent battery? They probably already have the technology for it but like to take advantage of us more than once a year for another $130. …

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. …

Leave the MBP unplugged every time the battery gets fully charged... then only plug it in when the battery is low, recharge it, and unplug it agin? Take the battery out if the MBP is to be plugged in for long periods? Do some internet research on voodoo rituals that might help battery life? Anyone have a practical suggestion on the best battery-sustaining habits to get into?
Thanks to all... …
