    Hi I bought the standard base model retina version a few weeks ago. I did a clean install of Yosemite on it also. How can I improve the battery life? Is there any way of making it better? I use safari etc

    Thanks

    OP has a new Retina and those don't need to be calibrated.

    There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    "Current Apple portable computer batteries are pre-calibrated and do not require the calibration procedure outlined in this article."

    That is from the article you linked to.
