All was good until my recent upgrade OSX 10.8.2. I was getting excellent battery life sometimes 8+ hours. Now for whatever reason it has taken a turn for a worst, I am now getting roughly 5 or less hours doing normal tasks such as just browsing the web. Should I try taking this to a genius bar, is my battery defective? I attached 2 images of the estimated time and the battery health app.


Keep in mind this laptop is only a month old, and was a "new" replacement after I told them about the ghosting issues I experienced. Very disappointing....
