    How frustrating.  If you've tried resetting the SMC and that doesn't help, then I think a discussion with Apple is in order for you.

     

    10.8.2 turned out to do quite a bit of good for my MacBook Air's battery issues.  More here.'

     

    Best of luck!

    I have done  the 3 terminal commands. It changed the desktop to a default wall photo. The battery calculator said 3:45 hr remaining and start increasing over time after a few mimute wrighting this message it is now 6:13 hr remaining at 98% battery level. It looked better if it will not losing too fast. Hope for the best. Thank you. It is now 6:43 hrs.at 97% level.

    After a good sleep last night, the calculator says 5:15 hr remaining at 75% level. The drop looked not too bad. The remaining hour is on the rise too. Wonder why? It's now 5:45 hrs at the same level 75%.

    It still looked  pretty the same for a fast drain!! I think I'll give up doing this stupid thing again. Completely waste of time. I spent more than half of my working life config the Windows based machine those days. I won't get suck into this again. If it drain, let it run dry. I will carry all the AC adaptro wherever I go again. Not to bother this again. The Apple personel may be too busy releasing things to the market and make money. I'm just a poor and stupid user. That's all. I'll continue doing my money making job again after spent several long night working with this. ****!!

    OK! Confirmed. This method won't work for my MBP. Still fast drain. It may have more than 8:00 hr just after full charge but continue fast drain soon after that. The actual normal use is expected no more than 3 hrs.

    I would suggest Apple to supply a portable "nuclear power plant" for mac user real quick.

    Hi,

     

    I tried working on the fix above on my recently bought Macbook Pro. Same experience and problem with Sixtieth Degree and it worked! The remaining time of the battery, increases.

     

    But the issue is, after I fully charged again my laptop on the next day, it goes back again to 3 hours remaining time.

     

    Should I always use the fix to increase the battery time of my laptop?

     

    Thnaks!

    Thanks for posting the SMC tip.  After upgrading to Mountain Lion, my battery was going out in about 2.5 hrs.  After following the instructions at your link, my system is saying I have around 5 hours left.  Great news!

    Hi

    I just bought a 15" MBPR. The battery life is disappointing and i'm thinking i'll just send it back. Do any of you guys regret buying yours? You will have had them a lot longer than me....
