    New battery discharging quickly/recharging slowly
    Hi,
    I recently had the battery on my MBP replaced following failure of the first one.
    However, since having the new one, it takes a lot longer to charge, and once charged, seems to be discharging much quicker than the last one.
    Is there anything I can do about this, or is it best to take it back to Apple for repair/replacement?

    You can try an SMC reset Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC) but if that doesn't work - I'd be taking it in.
