what happens with it now?
It's why I opened this thread. As I said, with Windows I can do about 5 hours of battery, instead with macOS more or less 2 hours. It seems, as also tmbt said, that there is more power consumption in macOS than in Windows.

you have an issue with your AppleHDA:
Code:
Kext with invalid signatured (-67061) allowed: <OSKext 0x7f993ff80110 [0x7fff929a48f0]> { URL = "AppleHDA.kext/ -- file:///System/Library/Extensions/", ID = "com.apple.driver.AppleHDA" }
it should not appear in your Kextcache output

you should re run the macOS installer to refresh your kexts (no need to wipe)
What I have to do once I have started the installer?

well, you just install macOS over the top of your current setup, you won't loose anything

Mine also draining faster than Win (~6W on macOS and ~1.2W on Win). Actually I have to charge my Acer in 2 hours.
On Windows it's ~5-6 hours. I'm with PluginType and HWP enabled, best fit smbios (MacBookPro13,3), everything is working. I think my NVIDIA is disabled correctly but I'll look at my SSDT's. If they're correct then I think there is nothing else to do, I'll try to live with that.

@Feartech I see that you also have Skylake system similar as mine. Could you please tell me how much is your power consumption?

I did it but it's still not working.
you need to enable these in your config.plist:
Code:
<key>Fixes</key>
            <dict>
                <key>Comment-IRQ Fix</key>
                <string>The following fixes may be needed for onboard audio/USB/etc</string>
                <key>FixHPET</key>
                <false/>
                <key>FixIPIC</key>
                <false/>
                <key>FixRTC</key>
                <false/>
                <key>FixTMR</key>
                <false/>
            </dict>

Code:
<key>PciRoot(0)/Pci(0x1f,3)</key>
            <dict>
                <key>#PinConfigurations</key>
                <data>
                </data>
                <key>#hda-gfx</key>
                <string>onboard-1</string>
                <key>#layout-id</key>
                <integer>3</integer>
                <key>#no-controller-patch</key>
                <integer>1</integer>
            </dict>

Nothing to do.
