    Just bought a 13" MBP, my third mac. Am loving it, especially the great battery life. One small irritation is the low battery warning alerting me fairly early - usually around an hour of battery life remaining when this message appears!

    Anyone got a way to adjust the timing of this warning, or is it just a side-effect of decent battery life?!

    Ha, I've got the same problem. I get a warning, only to find that I have 1:45 left on my laptop.

    Im guessing here, but it probably comes on at around 20%, as Li batteries prefer shallow cycles (AFAIK)

    Yeah, 20% is about it. That's 2h remaining though, according to the 10h claimed battery life!
