Apple's new 16-inch MacBook Pro model features up to 22 hours of battery life – the longest battery life ever offered in a Mac.

16 macbook pro lifestyle
Both of the new 14- and 16-inch MacBook Pro models offer one additional hour of battery life over their predecessors, rising from 17 to 18 hours on the 14-inch model and 21 to 22 hours on the 16-inch model. For comparison, both the M1 and M2 MacBook Air offer 18 hours of battery life, while the 13-inch MacBook Pro offers 20 hours of battery life.

While the new MacBook Pro models have the same battery capacities as their predecessors, Apple says that the ‌M2‌ Pro and ‌M2‌ Max chips deliver improved efficiency to prolong battery life and reduce the energy they consume over their lifetime compared to the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips from the previous generation.

It is not yet clear if this has been enabled by an increase in battery capacity
14-inch MacBook Pro M2 Pro and M2 Max: 70-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery

16-inch MacBook Pro M2 Pro and M2 Max: 100-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery

Battery capacity is the same as the previous models.

They can’t increase the battery capacity of the 16-inch as lithium-ion batteries above 100Wh have FAA restrictions for flights.

Keep in mind the battery life that actually matters: wireless web, that's 15 hours in the new 16" M2 Pro MBP. No one in their right mind spends 22 hours in the Apple TV app

I dunno about that — the PRAM battery in my Performa lasted a good few years
