    Is this normal? I just got my Macbook Pro Retina 13.1" in November. I felt like when I first got it I could go all day basically without charging it. I work from home and use it for work.

    Now, I unplugged it at 6:30am when it was at 100% and now it is 8:44 and I am down to 46%. Does this sound normal to anyone?

    Thanks so much!!

    Something must be using your battery.

    In Activity Monitor, go to the Energy tab and attach a screenshot.

    Also post a battery health status shot with coconutbattery.

    I am currently charging it now as I attached it to my monitor. Let me know if you need anything else. I cannot think of anything I am doing differently or using differently for work that I was not using back then.

    Thanks!

    Your battery health is superb.

    Looks like Firefox and Safari is eating up your battery. Do you have Flash enabled? If yes, disable it.

    Use Safari as much as possible. And stay away from Chrome, it's a power hog.

    Well that is good to know! It must be the Firefox for work. I have to use that one, haha. I don't have Chrome installed as I know it creates major battery issues. Thanks for checking for me!
