    I wanted to create this poll to gauge overall battery-life on ivy-bridge rMBPs after mavericks update.

    I used my 13" rMBP at uni today for about 6 hrs all up and it still says 2:53 remaining, definite improvement from Mountain Lion.


    How does yours perform?

    I am not sure yet.

    I have 13in rMBP with i7 2.9ghz with 512SSD. AT 100% I am reading 5hr 21min remaining

    It sure seems yesterday the battery drained slower but I did not use down to 10%. I went from like 100% to 80%

    Been on Mavericks since DP1, and standby battery is insane on my rMBP. Overall battery is definitely better from what I've seen

    My 15" rMBP 2.6/16gb/512 (purchased refurb from Apple in 6/2013) definitely increased battery life with Mavericks. Yesterday I was able to run it for 11 HOURS!
    NOTE: That's with display at around 60% brightness, keyboard backlight off, GFX status set to INTEGRATED ONLY, all the while running Safari, Mail, and Pixelmator (simultaneously about 50% of the time) along with occasional brief sessions on iTunes (It was actually 12 hours, but I deducted the 1 hour it was in Sleep mode).
