Turn your screen backlight down to the lowest lever that you can work with. I use level 5 or 6 (out of 16).
Turn off bluetooth if you aren't using it.

After several battery drain and recharges (never drain your batt low) your "remaining" time will be more accurate, however there is still a minor issue with the indicator for "remaining", dont rely on same currently.
You need to differentiate between ACTUAL time on your battery and its indicated "remaining" time, ....while this has always been an estimate via software, it is currently in investigation by techs. to be fixed.
Most people (myself included) are getting actual longer battery life with Mavericks.
Also list in activity monitor your energy use on APPS etc, ....Chrome has gotten worse (however it wasnt good before on batt. use)
