Hello,

The battery of my new rMacbook 12" drains about 1% in 24 hours even if it is completely powered off. That means a fully charged Macbook is depleted after about 100 days even without turning it on at all.

What is your battery usage when your rMacbook is powered off?

Regards,
Thomas

I bought it on day one, charged it to 100% and switched it off immediately. Since then I'am waiting without touching the damn thing just to figure out if it really runs to 0% after 100 days. Just two more weeks to go:rolleyes:

Come on! Just give me your results after 24 or 48 hours of shutting down.

Might want to do some googling. But I'll give you the basics.

Your battery depending on temperature will lose up to 10% of its charge over the first 24 hours. By 30 days you'll be sat at 80% charge. The higher the temp larger the loss. If your going to store the battery it should be between 40-60% charge and kept cool.
