Users Experiencing Noticeable Battery Drain After Mavericks Upgrade

Despite the new OS X Mavericks is supposed to increase the battery life of Mac machines, some users are experiencing a ‘horrible’ battery drain issue after upgrading to OS X Mavericks.

Apple’s technical forum supporters suggested to wait for the Spotlight to fully index, however, many people are still having the same issue even after waiting for days, and calibrating the battery.

However, a battery test performed by Ars Technica claimed that Mavericks will improve the battery life, although, instead of battery life improvements, they are noticing a very noticeable decrease of battery efficiency.

The exact working solution is not yet found, but some Apple assistance suggested to reset the SMC.
