    Battery Icon's "Estimate" Results from a 13" i5/8g/128 Haswell Air

    From 3% to Full
    3:04

    Battery Design Capacity : Current Max Capacity
    7510 : 7150


    Thought this might help in some weird way for someone.

    Mine charges all the way up to full from below 10% in an hour and a half.
    This is when I'm completely shutting down the OS X, and charging it.
    I was very surprised.

    Yeah, mine is actually way faster on the chargeup (haven't timed it "officially"). The estimation gave me 3:04, but it was about half that when it got to 100%.

    1hour 54 minutes from 2% to 100%.

    Charging on new MacBook Air is incredible. Even faster than my iPhone 5. It took around 1hour 54minutes from 2% to 100%.

    From 3% - 100%, an astounding 1hr 48 min. Absolutely incredible, considering I was running VMWare half the time, and had music playing in the background.

    My 11" Air charges faster than my iPhone too. From completely dead (powered itself off) to 100% takes a little bit more than an hour. Amazing.

    How do you people find time to work out how long it takes to charge stuff up? Don't you have work to do?

    on a related note (but kinda on a tangent)

    Is the charger that is for the NEW 2013 Mac Air the same charger as the 2012 Mac Air? I noticed the magnetic head are visibly different.

    But are they compatible?

    Ya, I was extremely impressed on how fast the Air's charge (11") compared to my rMBP or any other MBP I have ever owned.

    You can almost just sit there and watch the meter go up.

    Between 1 1/2 - 2 hours when it's almost fully drained (less than 5%). Not bad at all.

    I was in the 15-20% range and it took around 1 hr 30 mins to 2 hrs.

    Crazy fast.

    Also it said 20 hours remaining when I had 1 Safari tab open. haha
