    Hey everyone,

    Can you guys let me know what kind of battery life you're getting on the 13 inch non touch bar model. Please include level of brightness you keep the screen on and programs that you use.

    I didn't get any constant numbers with the nTB 13" MacBook Pro. 16GB Ram and 512SSD. I returned it and I feel like it had some hardware issues. Like one day when it got below 50% battery life, the battery ticked away to 0% in 25mins, using the same Watt pulling as the previous 100% to 50%.

    Some people say its software, but I have a feeling it's something more sinister.. Like hardware. Its almost like once in a while it jumps around between cells, like a bad battery controller.

    I didn't trust it, but a lot of people are just accepting the inconsistency. Its really a cool looking machine, just a horrible battery, OH and only two USB-C inputs(LAME!!)
