    I've been watching my discharge rates pretty consistently with using CoconutBattery in the menu bar. I'm typically averaging between 10-12w... what about you?

    Trying to figure out what other people are seeing.

    Pre 10.12.3 beta 2, I was averaging 12-18 on light use.

    Post 10.12.3 beta 2, I am averaging 8-12 and* seeing much better battery life.

    Still experiencing about 1.5% battery drain per hour when on sleep, which is still much to high.

    Edited out typo*

    That's encouraging news.

    I've joined the beta program (and installed the Feedback pkg) but the beta is not appearing in the App Store for me. Any ideas?

    It took about 5 mins for the update to show up in my App Store. Maybe try restart the computer, and wait?

    Since everyone uses the computer differently (it even differs from day to day for that single person) this kind of poll is absolutely useless. Without knowing the usage these numbers say nothing. Adding things like "light", "moderate", "heavy" usage isn't helping either because what is light to you might be someone else's moderate.

    You might want to do a different poll that specifies 13- or 15-inch.

    Tried both restarting, waiting for a few minutes, and then waiting a few minutes with the Updates tab open. Nothing!
