Updated December 5, 2016 ● 309 views

Owners of the latest MacBook Pro with Touch Bar are reporting that they are not getting the advertised 10 hour battery life.

They have taken it too Apple's own community forum to report the issues. They said that they where only getting 3 hours with just browsing activity.

One user said:

I just received my new 15" MacBook Pro with touch bar. The battery life is horrible!!! I have Safari open with 6 tabs and with 95% battery, I am told that I have under 3 hours of battery life left! I thought these things were supposed to get 10 hours? I ran the battery down in 3 hours last night only browsing the web. I wasn't watching videos, just browsing. Is there something wrong with my laptop?

It is not yet clear what's causing the issue but people thinks it's the Radeon graphics chip.
