    Ok well I got my new macbook battery, directly from apple about almost a week ago.

    I installed it, let it drain dead for a couple of hours then plugged it in over night. But the battery seems to stil drain pretty fast. A little better then the old battery but not much improvement.

    Maybe it was always like this? but as i can remember, when i first got my mbp in 2009, the battery use to last for quite a while.


    Is it possibly my mac draining the battery? I ran battery health monitor and it detects it as being a good battery.

    My Mac:

    2.53 core 2 duo
    Upgraded to 8 Gb of ram
    Upgraded OS from snow leopard to Lion.

    Use iStat Pro to get accurate readings of your battery health, cycles, etc. There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Yes, your mac is definitely draining the battery. You didn't think it was your television did you? :D

    try this

    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right B, A, Start

    that should give your battery 99 lives


    if that does not work return it to apple
