    Hi guys,

    there are lots of threads about the new MacBook Pro with touchbar having low battery life. However, most of the current Touchbar-powered owners simply reinstalled a time machine backup, instead of simply copying their data from their old machine/drive to this new one. In the last case, you still have a clean install of Sierra with all your data on it, again.

    I'm looking for that segment of people who did not restore a time machine backup, but kept a clean install, but reinstalled Sierra anyway, based on current advices.

    My question is: Did reinstalling Sierra over your factory-installed Sierra Macbook improved your battery life?

    If you did a time machine backup after your purchase, but had a bad battery life, so you did a clean install, please don't vote.

    Not voting here: However I'll throw this out I've run my MBP 15" for a few cycles now and the life has increased as well as the capacity reported by the apps I've downloaded for monitoring it after hearing of all the complaints.

    I read that in the reviews as well, basically giving it a few days, the battery performance increased and you got increased longevity.
