    Hi,
    I’m currently running a MBP 13’ 2.3GHZ i5 & recently Ive noticed a significant
    drop in the battery life. I get around 4hrs based on standard use: Web browsing, emailing, Youtube & a bit of ITunes. I used to get around 5/6hrs.
    I’ve checked the battery using IStat Pro: Battery health 97% Cycles 121.
    The other day I had 88% of charge soon as I opened Youtube it dropped to 21% and stayed there even when I closed Youtube.
    Is anyone else seeing this kind of thing???

    Cheers

    Grum

    Completely normal. Battery life is based on usage.
