    It seems like my battery has been draining much quicker for the past few weeks then normal. There definitely has to be something wrong with it. I got my MBP last June, so of course it's out of warranty now. I just set up an appointment for tomorrow, but is there anyway to check the battery health or anything I can do?

    Thanks

    Use iStat Pro to get battery readings, among other things. There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:

    Looks ok to me presumably it's a 15" judging by those numbers?

    Yes, 15in. You guys really think it looks okay? It's been draining much quicker then it has previously.
