I suffer the same thing. I notice that this effect appear after I install the graphic fix update. I restore the machine and shows the 9 hours. Now I update and shows 4 hours....try to restore and don't updates

Looks like you have a lot going on in the menu bar there (that you blurred out for some reason).
Even with your blurred image, I can see that you have your bluetooth and wireless on. I'm also assuming that you brightness and volume is on full.
On top of this, what apps do you have running?

That is not the solution!

I also notice you don't show your dock. Take a shot of activity monitor sorted by CPU use highest to lowest.
