Default Battery life using OS X - 06-14-2009, 09:47 PM

How much battery life are you guys getting running OS X? Mine calculates at about 3:00, but I've never timed it or anything. I remember reading that the OS X updates have actually increased netbook run times. Is this true?

I get about 5 hours 30 mins on my six cell battery. Haven't done a light or medium duty battery drain test, but I can get through the whole day on a charge.

Make sure you patch IOBluetoothFamily.kext to include the ProductID and VendorID of the Dell BT module, this way, can you turn off BT from menu bar and save more battery when you don't need it.
