    SSD Macbook Pro Battery Issue
    I have recently changed to 120GB SSD OCZ-AGILITY3 in my MacBook Pro (early 2011).
    I have immediately noticed a difference in battery performance. Maybe up to 30% decrease.
    Is there anything I can do to counter or fix this issue?

    Thanks.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    To add.... Have you recently upgraded to Mountain Lion? There's a real problem concerning degraded battery usage and Mountain Lion. The SSD may not be at fault.

    Im running Snow Leopard on an early 2011 MBP

    I cant really afford to buy another drive, especially if I dont know that it will fix the problem.

    I would love to do that, but I need to prove that the drive is faulty. Do you know how can I do that?

    Most places are fine with that - I know Amazon is.
    Agreed
