    Hi so I have a 2016 15inch 460 2.9 MBP. The battery life is on average 3 hours. I am slightly extremely disappointed. I talked to apple support, and they told me to use Safari instead of chrome. I think it is ridiculous that they have to tell me that, as the work I do requires that I am able to use extensions on chrome such as tampermonkey.

    But even after switching to safari, my battery life only improves to about 4 hours. I am only running slack and spotify in the background. Has anyone else encountered these issues, and has anyone found a way to solve it?

    Yes I am on the latest version of MacOS. Yes this is not with maxed brightness.
