How long does it take to charge the new 2010 13 inch MacBook Air? I’m curious more than anything, So I ran a couple of tests. I charged my new MacBook Air the other day, when the system was completely bone dry, until the unit was 100% fully charge.
My results: It takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes, on average, to charge my 13 inch MacBook Air. I have no idea how long does it take for the 11 inch model, since I don’t own one, but I’m curious if the results are any close.
Based on what I’m reading here on the Mac Forums, the older MacBook Airs had on average, a charge time of about 4 to 5 hours. Some longer than others. One poster said it took him 8 hours. That’s a bit too much.
So, based on that information, it looks like the charge time for the new 2010 MacBook Air, is at least 3 times faster than its predecessor. Quite an impressive feat.
Often, users only ask about battery life, but they forget to ask about the battery’s charge time. With the new MacBook Air’s charge time of about a third of a time, it’s one spec Apple forgot to mention.
Next on the agenda, battery life. Apple says it’s between 5-7 hours. I want to test.
