    Noticed a bump in battery life after upgrading my Retina MacBook. It used to report roughly 4 hours at 100% prior to the upgrade. It now says over 7 hours at 100%. Need to see if the battery lasts that long as 4 hours was quite pathetic.

    Also noticed that the battery remaining jumped from 5:55 to 6:05 then 6:08, then falling back to 5:58, then jumping to 6:48 and then jumping in increments of 10, 6:58, 7:08, 7:18, 7:28, 7:38 in a matter of few minutes or so. Quite weird, but I noticed this for the first time so not sure if it is expected behavior.
