    Good Morning guys,
    I just wanted to know what your estimated battery lifes are!

    I got my MacBook since Monday and during the week it has increased a lot.
    From around 6 hours on the first to 10 hours on the second, and I right now I get an estimated battery life of 20.00 hours.
    Currently I am using safari with 3 tabs open.

    Can I expect the Macbook to last 10 hours? I think 20 seems a bit ridiculous.
    Or do you guys think this is kinda buddy?
    Edit: Forgot to write that I am using my macbook at around 75% brightness.
    Reduced it now to 50.

    Peace

    Estimates are not the true picture see what watts being consumed in activity monitor and set timer and see what actually your usage is for 10 hours you should have 5 watts

    I opened activity monitor, and over the past 20 minutes I lost around 1 hour of estimated battery life.
    Hm, I still stope to get around 8-10 hours.
    Will definitely try to set a timer over the next days, thanks!

    Peace
