    Just got one recently and can't seem to find info on this...tried searching.

    Any ideas what kind of times to expect, from a fully drained battery?

    Maybe he wants to know what is the standard to compare. I will time mine next time but if I had to guess from the latest times I would say an hour and a half though I didn't pay that much attention.

    Yeah, about 1:30-2.00 I would say. I have the 15" using the built in battery as well.

    Thanks a lot guys. Two hours is very good news. For background, I also have a 1st Gen MacBook Air, and wow, that thing needs something like 6-7 hours to fully charge.

    Anyway, I wanted to check with you guys because I was going to calibrate my batteries for the first time. And since that process means draining and then fully recharging without interruption, I wanted to get an idea of how much time I needed to make sure it happens without having to disconnect it from the power source the next morning when I needed to take it with me. With the MBA it really required quite a bit of forward thinking to do this simple task.

    Good to know it's that quick.

    Mine just took 2 hours on the nose to go from empty to 100%. 15"MBP that is a few weeks old. I was using it for web browsing while charging but I can't imagine that would slow things down any.
