06-21-2004, 01:13 AM #3vjamacaddictGuestiBook 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.?

You had life left bacause when you close the lid, sleep mode turns on.

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.

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?
