Viewing Youtube in Normal/Theater Mode consumes more GPU (thus battery consumption), than in FullScreen.
Normal/Theater Mode : 15% to 20%; battery last 3 hours
FullScreen Mode : 2% to 3%; battery last more than 4 hours
Is this normal?

Fullscreen might use video overlay mode, which might be more efficient. Also, are you comparing the same quality and video format between normal mode and fullscreen? Sometimes youtube switches to a higher quality in fullscreen, which may be a different video format. Your hardware might optimize on and not the other.
