    What is yours? Mine is the original battery for my macbook 4.1, white plastic. I'm surprised mine has lasted this long...

    I get about 6-7 hours battery life single-tasking in leopard, my macbook is 6.1 I think and about 9 months old. If I multitask I get about 3-4 hours battery life.

    Those percentages aren't very accurate. Hours life is more useful.

    Here's mine, it lasts about 3-4 hours when I'm watching YouTube videos, no idea how long it lasts when I'm not watching YouTube videos because I only bought the thing like last week and so far that's all I use it for.

    Just got a new battery due to the old one swelling, but at the time it still had about 86% health on ~700 cycles at about 38 months.

    46 months old white Macbook. 1619 cycles and 92 % health according to Coconut Battery.

    Pretty good for it's age. About 2 hours in real life.
