    How long does your machine take for a full charge?

    My MBP 15" takes 4+ hours to charge, which seems quite high, since I only get 3+ hours out of the battery.

    Any opinions on this?

    You do need to remember that the battery begins to charge with a trickle current after a while...

    YEah, 4+ hours here for charge time and you are lucky getting 3+ hours of use. With everything off except Airport for surfing the web and the brightness at <50%, I get sub-3 hours consistently...It fluctuates, but never more than 3 hours. At what point should I try a new battery? This is a couple weeks new and have had problems with battery and expose on battery power...
