Is 10% an hour a good average battery drain?

    Hello. I just received my replacement 13" MBP w/touch bar. I charged it up to 100%. I watched just over 2 hours of Kodi and HBO Now. It went down to 78%. I have the brightness at 100%.

    Would this be considered good or average battery drain? I am new to Mac, and I have read about issues with the battery and some other things that have me worried about my purchase, so I figured I would ask you knowledgeable folks here.

    Thank you in advance for your responses.

    Sounds okay, but I'd allow it a few days to index the system as that'll use a lot of power in the background. If you're not already, use Safari over Google Chrome. Then try a full run.

    seems to be in line with my battery life on the MBP 13 TB. Especially considering you've got your brightness all the way up to 100%, that's what's eating up battery very quickly

    A few days? It should be done in like an hour depending on how much data you brought over from your old Mac.

    I tend to err on the side of caution; a few days would definitely ensure any background niggles are ironed out. :)

    Well that suggests 10 hours of use which is pretty damn good for a machine that is probably still spotlight indexing and is bang in line with their claims of a 10 hour battery life. More importantly its at 100% brightness and apples claims and testing are done at 75% brightness, drop it down a bit and watch your battery life go up.

    Curious, which model did you buy? (cpu, ram and graphics).
