    Ive posted about restoring my MBP before but I never end up doing it. But now Im kind of fed up with the poor battery life. I've been one battery for 58 minutes after a full charge and Im already down to 78%. Backlit keyboard is off and brightness is set to 'refer to pic'. The only things Ive been doing since unplugging is surf tech sites and watch 2-3 videos. What do you guys recommend I do?

    Please check the activity monitor -> Energy tab, there may be a cue why the better drain so fast.

    Don't use Google Chrome - its been recently pointed out that this is the cause of battery drain on laptops because it uses CoreGraphics
