MacBook Pro Battery Update

September 30, 2008

Jamie wrote a piece today about his anemic battery life on his MacBook Pro. It’s been quite awhile since I tested mine, on my 23 month old machine, but suffice it to say, I travel nowhere without my power supply. My biggest problem isn’t the amount of time that appears in the calculated time left area. It will tell me I have nearly two hours when I disconnect the power. My problem manifests itself when it hits about 50 minutes left. It shuts off. No warning, no sleep, just death.

This is not a “good” problem.

Here’s what coconutBattery tells me:

It looks healthier than Jamie’s with a similar amount of wear, but I need to figure out this “shut down” issue.

Anyone else seeing this?
