Hey, how long does it take to charge a MBP from 0% to 100%??

My 2 year old PB takes an estimated time of: 133(hrs):39 (min)

I'd guess about 1.5 hours for the MBP, based on the LiPo battery in my laptop.

Are you seriously saying it takes almost a week to charge your battery? That can't be right. Have you tried another battery or reset the PMU?

No, My battery is just really old and the estimate is WAY OFF. More like 45 minutes and it dies. But it can really take about 9hrs to charge fully

Two years is not that old. If calibration and/or PMU reset don't help, there's something really wrong with your battery.

I have found that my MBP charges in a few hours. Just today, I ran it down at school and plugged it in at home. A few hours (somewhere between 2 and 4) later, the light on the power plug was green, indicating the battery was no longer charging.

How did it come to this? Goodbye PowerPC. | sensory output

Mine takes about 2 hours-ish - but I rarely get down to sub-10% before I find a power plug.
