    I have the drive "model CT256M4SSD2" in for about a week now I see the battery drains much faster anyone else is experiencing this as well?

    Thanks

    No. Crucial 512gb since August and if anything, my battery life is just a tad bit better. Makes sense as there are no moving platters anymore.

    Adjust your habits. Close programs that you aren't using, use Click2Flash, keyboard backlight off, brightness to from 4-8 bars (25-50%), etc. Do that and you won't see any drop (I didn't, and I installed a Crucial M4 SSD about 2 weeks ago)

    THe battery life should be longer as SSD drains less power

    No problems with my Crucial SSD reducing battery life.
