I just installed a 100gb OWC Mercury Extreme Pro RE SSD into my 13 inch 2.53 ghz macbook pro. Now my battery only last around 2 hours. Has anyone else had this problem or know what to do about this?

Things that might matter -
The SSD was a clone of my last hard drive and I currently am using 35gb of the 100gb.

Thanks in advance

Was it a clone of the hard drive from the same machine or another mac? If it's from another mac then you may not have the proper driver for the new one, you would be better off reinstalling your system and then using migration assistant using an external enclosure or sata/usb interface.
