I got my invite Weds and have down three short rides. First night I downloaded Zwift, rode one quick lap to see if everything was working and then rode another three laps after dinner. Four total laps plus a download and battery life dropped from 98% to 8%. In contrast I rode 2015 ToS stage 8 with imbedded videos running in TrainerRoad and didn’t kill that much battery. I plugged the computer in the next night to do 6 laps. I have a newish 11 inch MacBook air and use a KK road machine trainer/powertap/garmin heart strap combo.

I noticed my fan speed revving up the first time I launched Zwift, so I took that as a hint that I should plug in my Air for my planned 1:30 ride
