Default [Q] (Chrome sandbox process drains battery)

I've tried googling this but the problem is either not widespread or its simply normal. When I use Chrome, sometimes the sandbox process will appear and it will absolutely drain my battery. The screenshot below is considered pretty good, at times I can see the process second top in the battery eating race after screen. Does anyone else encounter this? How do I fix it?

I have experienced this from time to time and I know others who use Chrome more extensively may see 3+ on their battery list by the end of the day which is disheartening.

I can't say how to fix it or what they even represent though.

Here is a thread discussing the topic:

I have the same problem and is driving me crazy as I tried other browsers cause of that but ended up returning to Chrome. If you find a fix please let me know. I searched the entire web for a solution and nothing yet...
