    I got my MacBook Pro on the 1st of September and I'm a bit worried about the battery life.

    At the moment the screen brightness is one bar and bluetooth is off, which is how I normally have it and the battery life time estimate keeps changing quite a lot. 5 minutes ago it said 5:11 left, and since then it's changed to 7:30, 7:58 and now it's saying 6:50 and is now on 95% and 8:03. I'm not doing anything differently and I don't know why it's doing this.

    Can anyone help please?

    The battery time estimator will vary greatly depending on the tasks you are running at that very moment no worries.

    ex. opening up a webpage with flash playing will decrease your battery life by a great amount but close it and you'd see a great jump in battery life.

    ok, thank you, I just wasn't sure if it was normal.

    Thanks
