    Hi there
    I'm wondering what battery time i can expect if i watch .mkv files (NOT HD - each 20 minute file is somewhere around 50mb) with brightness 50%, and key backlight off, and no other programs running, in MplayerX?
    Can i expect 5 hours? shooting for too much?
    thanks

    Yup i was getting 5 hours for exactly the same kind of usage you are putting it to.
    Albeit:at brightness at just 1 above total darkness.

    100% brightness, 1080p mkv, 4 hours.

    You can probably get 5 hours with lower brightness and lower quality video format.
