    hi there,

    just starting to read through posts on other's battery issues, which i know we've all had since early days of rev A.

    with only safari open at full charge my battery goes down to 60% in just under 30 minutes. some stats:

    current battery capacity: 89%, 4561mAh
    load cycles 214

    have others had the similar experiences with quick drainage?

    ps. apologies for reposting this question. my initial one was buried.

    That sounds abnormally fast if you really dont have anything else like downloads running (check activity monitor to make sure)

    Since it is 30 mins, you can demonstrate this at the Appple store and they will replace it. There has been several cases of batteries going bad around this age. It is certainly not normal. Good luck.
