Just got a new Macbook 2 and my battery charging seems to be fine until it hits 85% full at which point it goes from 20-30 minutes remaining up to 1 hour remaining and then when it gets to 99%, it takes it like 20 minutes to get that one remaining percent. Any suggestions? Thanks.

i just did a complete refresh/calibrate of my battery last night, and i noticed the same thing. i'm guessing this may be normal.

you could try calibrating the battery.
i used this article here.

I'm having the same problem. It takes an unusually long time to recharge the battery on my MacBook Pro.
