    So I hooked my Surface up to the charger last night. Light was on, all looked good. Went to bed, got up this morning, and when I went to pull the tablet off the charger, the light was still on. Pulled it off, signed in, then I got the Win8 chime and looked to see that it was warning me I had 5% battery life left.

    Nothing was left running on the tablet, screen was off all night. I restarted the tablet and plugged it in again for it to charge. Is this a common occurance or I do have a problem here? It's charging right now, but...

    I'd keep trying and report back findings. Mine charges to full fine, but you could have a faulty charger, which is a better scenario than a faulty Surface. I'm not sure how you'd check between the two, though, besides finding another charger to test (maybe at an MS store).

    Yeah, I'm not sure which it is-although the charger seems to shock me every now and then, now that I think about it. Either way, it's making me consider the extended warranty.

    Mine only charges to 99 percent which is weird. Once it reaches 99 percent it says plugged in, not charging. Thoughts?

    Darn, didn't see this until I posted my own thread (sorry about that, folks).

    Got the same strange indications using Surface 2 and Pro 2 charger, and now it's "99% available (plugged in and charging)" after the battery icon started quickly cycling through empty to full on the task bar.

    Let's see how far it gets through the day...
