I noticed an increase during sleep. Im at 87 hours 43 minutes with 46% left. But only about 3 hours of actual usage. Been using my Air the past few days to decide if I am going to keep it.

Havent used it since yesterday around 9pm and only lost 5%. Thats half what I was losing in a 24 hour period.

Edit: Opened the Pro up today and its at 105 hours, 8 minutes with 42% remaining. Loss of 4% in 17 1/2 hours. They definitely fixed the standby time.

Anyone notice the big increase in Battery life?
Overall battery life seems on par with what I was experiencing before, but I will say it seems like they may have fixed the bug that was causing battery drain when the laptop is sleeping, I was losing 8-12% battery over night from a 100% charge, now it only drains 1-2% while in sleep mode overnight.

Im glad they finally fixed the standby drain issue. I’ve had my refurb 2017 MBP for over a year with the drain issue and it bugged me a lot.

Interestingly enough my 2014 and 2012 MBPs I had before that didn’t have the drain issue. My 2017 MBP had the standby battery drain issue pretty much from day one.
