    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?

    OS X 10.8.1 beta said to substantially improve battery life

    Can anyone here confirm these reports?

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

    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
