    I tried one in an Apple Store. I opened a dozen Safari tabs, a dozen apps and increased the brightness to 100% - my usual workflow. The estimated battery life went down to 3,5 hours. Does this check out with your results?

    That would probably be about right
    If you want more battery life, adjust your workflow

    Yup, that's what I see on my late 2013 rMBP. I bought a Hyperjuice 2 to get me through the day.
