    This picture shows the battery life I’m getting on my new 2016 MBP 15”. It’s got 9 cycle counts, everything says it’s operating normally. Apple support says to too. But 4 hours.

    So bottom line, is this normal for the 2016 MPB 15”?

    Specs are quad core i7 (6th gen), 16GB RAM, 1TB SSD.

    Maybe? I mean, numerous things affect battery life and we don't know how you use your MacBook Pro.

    Chrome is a known battery hog. Try using Safari and see if that helps with your battery life. 4 hours is extremely low for what you are doing and something is definitely not right.

    Did you buy it brand new sealed in the box?
