Is my battery still good?
Yes. Your battery is in excellent condition. Are you having any problems?
It has been dying pretty quickly lately...so just wanted to make sure everything was alright.
What's your settings on your Mac?
What do you mean: "Settings"?
Brightness etc etc
Brightness= one tick less than full
Anything else needed?
I have the new 13 macbook pro (with new battery) and I get 6 hrs out of mine if i surf the net and then watch a movie (video 2:30 hrs and internet around 3 hrs)
Thats with brightness on the 3rd notch and my backlit keyboard off
But if I rip a DVD using handbrake I only get 1 1/2 hrs!!!! with the brightness on 6th notch and the keyboard off.
What program is that that tells you all those stats?
Quantify "pretty quickly" ? 15 minutes? 1 hour?
What else are you running while on battery? Intensive programs require more power and will drain the battery faster.
That's because a) optical drives draw a lot of power, and b) while ripping your computer's processor is running at 100%.
It seems as though the battery is good once again. It started working well out of no were. I am calibrating it as I type this though, just to make sure.
