Even when charged doesnt last as long as advertised (6-7 hours). Normal? Is used extensively when charged. Is a refurb machine, no problems though. Lasts a maximum of 5 occasionally. (mind you im still using it extensively during such periods)

5 Hours isn't terrible, it will last longer if your doing light web, document editing etc, open up some hard core apps and you going to last much shorter. Like Video encoding on a shiny new 17" MBP I can make a newly battery say it will be dead in two hours.

The advertised up to 7 hours of battery life is with a lot of features of the MacBook Pro either turned off or set to a low level, such as wifi, bluetooth, keyboard backlighting and screen brightness.
