    How much trust would you place on MyBatteryLife? I've already downloaded it and am using it. I just received a system popup saying that my battery was about to run out. I dismissed it and opened up MyBatteryLife. IT shows I have 30% left: almost 11 hours for audio playback, 2 for video and 2 for wifi

    wait...wait...as I was typing this, it now shows 25%...9 for audio, 1.5 for video and 1.5 for wi-fi.

    So, is this worth putting any faith in?

    [EDITED] now it's back up to 30%...10:48; 1:48; and 1:48

    hmmmm

    I use batterystatus. Best is the percentage indicator in supreme prefs or sbsettings(can't remember which one or both)

    BatteryStatus (free app) is way better than MyBatteryLife (1 dollar app).

    MyBatteryLife is comical, giving you estimates compared to what Apple thinks the battery "should be."
