    Hey, my surface pro 2 doesn't seem to charge after 80% for some reason any more. I know there's been firmware update recently. I don't know if it's new feature to keep battery life better but how can I get it to charge to 100% again?

    I don't have this problem either, and I have a SP2 and all the latest updates.

    Hi, I agree with not firmware. It's something to do with usb extension(self powered) and having external hard drive (self powered). It's doing it again. I don't know if it's feature or bug but battery is at 87% and no longer charging. 35564 mWh /40604 mWh. If i take hard drive off usb extension and reconnect power it start charging again to 100%.

    Anyone has come across this issue?

    I have the updates installed and I haven't had any kind of battery drain... Or battery charging issues for that matter. Ummm.... Let's see... I only have the type cover connected and or a mouse (if that).
