Are you kidding me?
No, but I can probably come up with some dad jokes for you.
What's your usage case?
surfing the web and using Word
I think that this reduction is so ********.
Where did you get this battery life data?
Would like some more data on this as well. While I rarely need more than 5 hours of battery, more is always better, and especially when they claim 10 hrs.
The Verge's reviewer said 5.5 to 6 hours for his usage: http://www.theverge.com/2016/11/14/...-touch-bar-review-2016-13-inch-15-inch-laptop
The Verge is the only review who claims this 5-6 hrs, would be nice to see some other opinions
Did you actually fully charge it? The laptop can say 100 for a while but not actually be fully charged when you are going through the first charge cycle. That plus if you restored from a backup spotlight is likely indexing.
I got 6-7 hours also but after almost 1 day of setting up and indexing now i get around 11 hours fully charged
I thought Word (and other MS software) are resource hogs, meaning the battery life will be short.
Could that cause the 6hr battery life?
could it be because its indexing for the first time?
A four hour difference for a word processor?
Or maybe it's the much smaller battery in these new pro's.
The indexing thing is real and I've noticed numerous people minimize the impact of it.
Word is ridiculous on the Mac. On my 2013 Mac Air with i7 and 8GB, Word immediately gets the fans spinning. Same document in Pages is fine.
I dunno what the reality is of the new laptops, but my experience with indexing and Word says its a bad combo by which to judge battery life.
Give it till the second day. The first day I had about 5 hours runtime, today I'm close to 8-9.

Mossberg (also at Verge) got 11.5hr and 8.3hrs for his two tests. Odd difference given the lower number was with energy saver settings on. But he also mentioned that the battery meter that gives out time is accurate -- something Apple has apparently acknowledged.
I got 7 hours with pretty bright screen lots of installs and text entry with lots of web browsing. Only way you're getting 10 hours is if your watching a movie from local storage in airplane mode with the screen at 50%
Battery needs to 'run in'. My Apple Watch 2 only lasted 1.5 days in the first week. It's lasting 2.5 days now!
This! Finally someone with half a brain. You have to work the battery cells in for a bit, get the juices flowing. People need Patience! Yaaaaaaaaaaaay yeah.....
Wasn't this not a thing since... Years ago? I'd say not to rely on battery life for the first few days because you have to install all of your programs, not because of "battery cells"
Now after 8 more hours, when its full , after 10 min of mails and web i get 11 hours and 44 minutes
6 hrs is pretty poor. It's doing some graphics work not just mailing and web surfing!
I would suggest leaving the machine plugged in for the first day, get it all charged up, updated, indexed, and anything else that it needs.
I see one problem...
