    Hi i got my MacBook pro 15 inch with the touch bar yesterday from fedex so far i love the laptop a lot but there is one thing thats bothering me, im on the third cycle now or so but the battery from 100% to 0% seems to last only 2hours and 50 min to 3 hours for me i don't know why, i downloaded a app that tells me the estimated battery life remaining and it resembles what i'm seen anyone having this problem or do i need to get a replacement?

    Use it few days so spotlight and icloud can finish their stuff and test again.

    Yep, although I don't think there is a cure for the 13" touch-bar battery problems (as it is deeply rooted in using a very low capacity battery), I've heard the 15" should easily do 10+ hours of battery once everything is up and running (that is obviously using the iGPU of course).

    And don't forget about Photos.app analysing and indexing your complete photo library. Depending on its size this might take a while.

    Open up Activity Monitor and move over to the Energy tab. You should be able to see what's causing the drain. I'm curious to know, so maybe you could share your results.

    Did you migrate or clean installation? Maybe some problematic app is sucking the energy.
    Reboot? Safe Mode?

    i know it was said to not believe battery estimated time remaining but if u look at my previous picture to now what this shows its better for sure , smc reset is easy just turn off the computer completely like shut it down and then hold on the left side ****-control-option and the power button at the same time for like 10 seconds or so then release all the keys and just press the power one to turn ur laptop on and thats it.

    While it's possible that the SMC reset specifically solved your problem, it might also be possible that a simple reboot could have remedied a process that hung @ 100% CPU usage. Most people will not have to perform an SMC reset to see typical battery life.
