    Is this normal? Originally, the battery was advertised as having three hours of battery life. I am using a 2007 MBP 2.16 merom i think it was called. Well, it was the first core 2 MBP.


    That is what i get from coconut battery. Unplugged it says i have fourty some minutes. It seems a little low seeing how apple says the battery should retain 80 percent charge after 300 cycles.

    ps. This is my second battery. Dont know how it has so many cycles, seeing how I usually leave it plugged in. The first one was taken back because of the battery defects.

    I don't know why the image link doesn't work properly. If the mods would work their magic. :]

    Looks like your battery is toast.

    Call Applecare and ask for a replacement.
