Back in September we heard about some problem with the battery on the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet, this wasn’t the first time this had happened and Microsoft has been working on a fix for the problem.
Microsoft has now released a software update for their Surface Pro 3 tablet that is designed to fix the battery problems that users has been experiencing.
An update is now available to correct this issue. This update corrects the logic in the firmware component that functions as the “fuel gauge” for the Surface Pro 3 battery, so that the actual battery capacity on devices with this particular part is accurately reported. This allows the Surface to once again leverage the maximum charge capacity of the battery.
Once this fix is applied to a Surface Pro 3, the reported full charge capacity will self-correct over the next several charge and discharge cycles. Surface Pro 3 devices that previously experienced the problem can now operate on battery power, and the issue won’t occur on devices that haven’t experienced the issue.
You can find more details about the battery fix software update for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the link below, the update is now available to download.
