Problems with 2013 MBA Battery Life
Problem Solved:Google drive was consistently trying to connect and sync with my universitys pretty garbage wireless network and was sending a huge number of outgoing requests… After quitting drive my quoted battery life is back to where it should be (12 hrs at 100%!) and my actually battery life has improved dramatically.
I know this isn't necessarily the place to bother people with support questions, but I've tried everything short of replacing the laptop. My 2013 i7 MBA is getting 4-5 hours max lately and my usage patterns haven't changed since I got it a few weeks ago and was getting the quoted 10 or so hours of battery life. I've read that the i7 has been having some trouble with battery life issues, but I'm not quite sure its that. Heres an EtreCheck dump for what its worth. Any suggestions/known battery chuggers? Thanks.
