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.

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
