Hi All, For a little over a month I have owned a late 2016 MBP15 (2.9 GHz, 1 TB, 460). Since the released of OS X 10.12.2 I have found that my battery life to be in the 9 - 12 hour range with light usage (Safari, Outlook, Mail, Messages, and brightness set to 10 clicks). Energy consumption rate was anywhere from 6 - 11 watts as shown by Battery Health 1.3. Yesterday, my usage was more heavy. In addition to having several Safari tabs open, I was also working with Excel and using a virtual machine (VM Ware's Fusion). As expected, the rate of energy consumption rate increased to 20 watts plus. What I found that was odd as that as I began to turn off these applications, the rate of power never returned to the 6 - 11 watt range and remained relatively high at 17 watts plus. This situation prevailed for over 60 minutes even though I had every application off with exception of Finder. I went into the Activity application to see if I could find any application that might be using the discrete graphics card. None were indicated. I downloaded an application called gfxCardStatus v2.3 that shows whether-or-not the discrete graphics card is operational. This application indicates that only the integrated graphics was operational. I offer this experience for others that have 2016 MBP15s to obtain their input and thoughts. Donald Barar BTW. The only way I could get the energy usage rate back down to the 6 - 11 watt range was to re-boot. I should not have to do this. Also, I like everything about this laptop--even the keyboard and touchbar. But, I am concerned about what is I considere to be "flaky" use of the battery. Is this a hardware flaw? Or, can this be fixed with the release of firmware and/or software? I have tried all the usual fixes: PRAM, SMC, etc.
