I hope this will be useful for someone. 1. Using additional battery status tools drains the battery. Staring at them drains your time and nerves 2. When you charging your battery, don't trust the charging icon or the drop down menu that says "Battery is charged" Trust me - it's not! Open "System information", click on "Power" and check "Power information". You'll see that that the status is still charging even when the battery icon says that is charged. Wait until it's fully charged. 3. If you're using Spark (email client), turn if off after you finish working. It will still notify you when you've got new mail, but it will not drain your battery. Same goes for other apps that seems to sleeping, but are still active. 4. Do not leave your apps open while you're not using them. This is a very fast computer and you can start whatever you need very fast. Don't expect 10 hours of battery life if you leave open heavy software! 5. Turn off notifications while the computer sleeps, also the power nap. "FindMyMac" will work anyway, so no worries there. I've done that and my sleep drain is less than 1% overnight. Put to sleep at 100%, wake up on 100% battery. Also check for notifications that you don't need anyway when working during the day. I've turned off a lot of crap. 6. One tick keyboard brightness is enough, just try it. The screen is bright enough to light the keyboard. 7. Turn off the typing suggestions on the touch bar. Unless of course you're using them, but I doubt that. Please keep in mind that this is just my opinion and my experience with my Mac (MacBook Pro 13tb 2016, 2.9, 8GB RAM, 512SSD) for the past two weeks. Depending on my workflow, I've got between 6 hours (heavy software, plugged external drive, etc.) and 8-9-10 hours (movies, music, browsing, emails). I'm not saying that you've should change the way you've using your computer, but a little optimizations here and there will not harm your workflow. I'll update this topic as soon as I have something new to add. Please add your advices as well. Maybe this will help the people with crappy battery life.
