    The machine:
    -Late 2016 13" tMBP 8GB/256GB

    The test conditions:
    -75% brightness (12 notches, i think)
    -Turn Off: Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, auto brightness, keyboard backlight
    -QuickTime player
    -Loop h264 SD video, scaled to fill screen in full screen mode

    Result:
    8 hours 45 minutes

    To other owners, i'm curious to know what results you get using the above testing conditions? I'm a little disappointed that it did not get close to 10hrs, but it's not a huge deal for me personally.

    Cheers

    You are testing it wrong. :D

    But seriously, Why switch off Wi-Fi? I would think it shouldn't be switched off. Why SD video when at least 720p is the norm?

    My TB MBP 13 base at 2.9/8/256 gives me around 50% (give or take 10%) battery remaining at the end of 5 hours of Safari, OneNote and InDesign and occasional Outlook. Bluetooth off. WiFi on. Display brightness auto.
