Question: Battery draining after update to High Sierra

Before upgrading macOS to High Sierra, I usually got 8 to 9 hours of battery life; Now, my MBA (13' , late 2013) only has 5 hours battery life at most and it would heat up, with causal and video browsing . I have already reset the SMC once. Does anyone has the same issue?Any idea on solving this issue?
