    Only just purchased a new Macbook Air, less than a week old.

    The only thing I'm slightly concerned about is the battery life.

    It is currently unplugged and showing 81%, however the time remaining is showing 2:32hours.

    I thought that these were supposed to have 5-7 hour battery lives or am I completely wrong?

    The time remaining is a constantly changing estimate, based on the current workload on your system. 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.

    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.
