    Default Mountain Lion MacBook Pro/Air Battery Issue

    There have been a lot of reports early on about OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion killing battery life on MBP and MBA machines... I'm curious if anyone has loaded the 10.8.1 beta (either 12B13 or 12B17) and seen battery life improvements?







    Can anyone here confirm these reports?

    I never had the battery issues, so for me things have been nominal.

    Haven't noticed any major battery life changes thankfully.

    I have had reduced battery as well however I read on cult of mac (sorry!) that the bug had been fixed and in some cases extended battery life by 4 hours
