    iBook Battery Life?
    I just got my new G4 1Ghz iBook several days ago. I haven't timed the battery life exactly, but yesterday I left if at home running on battery power (with the cover closed). I had already used the iBook some (on battery power only). When I returned, over six hours later, there was still a couple hours of life left?

    How long do these iBook batteries really last? Sleeping mode, heavy useage, watching movies, ect.?

    Well i actually do get between 5 and 6 hours of battery life sometimes... which suprised me, because that's what the ad says, and since when are they accurate?

    But generally i get around 5 hours actual usage.. Although having said that i haven't once run out of juice yet so...

    I think the battery performance on the latest ibooks is great.. not many people need longer battery life than 5 hours anyway!

    The battery that came with my iBook when purchased would show 6:30 available after a charge, however it would die flat at 2 hours left. Stupid thing, it was covered under applecare and it was deemed a defective battery, now the system tells me about 4:00 left when charged which is more accurate. So my question is have any of you with a 6 hour time left actually drained it? At first I never let it get low, but when i tried, it just shut off, black screen and it was dead with about 2 hours left in the meter, lol.

    Cool iBook Battery Last 6 Hours !
    I get a good six hours of use from my new G4 iBook. I've been removing the battery though when I use the AC adaptor. Hopefully that will lenghten the battery life?
