Surface laptop battery drainage

Occasional Visitor

I recently had a system update about 1-2 weeks ago and since then I've noticed a major difference in my battery life. What used to last at least 6-7 hours now lasts 3 hours from full charge. All I have been using is Chrome/Word or Edge/Word. 

I switched from Chrome to Edge because I noticed Chrome sucked a lot of the battery power and hoped Edge would prove different. While there is a slight improvement it still only adds about an extra 20-30mins. 

Has anyone experienced something similar and found a way to fix it or is it possibly a bug in the update?
