    I just bought a new Penryn MBP the other day. When I charge it it doesnt seem to take a LONG time but iStat is showing 1:52 until charged and Leopard is saying 49 minutes until charged. I calibrated the battery twice but I dont know if maybe iStat is the problem and not my battery. Can anyone offer any insight?

    So, is the battery every actually fully charging? Do you ever get a green light on the charger, or just the orange one? I would let it fully charge and see what happens. Mine takes a while to charge, but if you leave it overnight and it is still not charged, then something is wrong.

    It charges fully. I just disabled the time remaining in the leopard battery and changed it to percentage because that ads up with what iStat is saying..

    The Leopard one is more of a how much time it takes to charge to 99%. That 1% takes that extra time and it's 'cause it's difficult to charge to maximum capacity.
