    it was roughly the same before i installed battery bar but i just never timed it... this is my first laptop so i have never had any other brands to go of... i beleive the battery is made by sony...

    battery wear is 55.6%


    sorry for the noob question, but what settings do i need to turn of to let it fully drain the battery?

    You have to adjust the critical battery level to 0%.

    You tried recalibrating? That should fix the non-synchronization between % left and time left
