    I use mine with the Surface Pro 3 dock not the newer one. It does not drain unless you are gaming since the SP3 dock charger is only 50 watts. When gaming, the SP consumes a bit more than that.

    New Surface Pro LTE review and issues
    3 weeks later I thought I would report on the pros and Cons
    this is the i5, 256 gb , 8 gigs of ram and the Qualcomm 885 Always on LTE modem
    Pros:
    1. Very Fast Load :).. 3 seconds to my chrome browser, ( much faster than my i7 7100 with 16 gigs of ram.)
    2. LTE works well! I am live all the time.
    3. Like the form factor ...12.5 in screen .. improvement over my Surface 3 LTE.
    4. Love my Maroon Colour scheme ..Keyboard and Mouse
    5. Battery life is good gets me through a full 8-10 hour day on lte
    6. Fast battery recharge
    Cons:
    1. Speakers SUCK big time.. I think the quietest of (17) tablets I have owned.
    2. Bluetooth does not connect speaker and microphone to Microsoft Sync in my Ford and Ford Sync 3 ( all other Apple and Samsung tablets do connect)
    3. Proprietary charging cable ..grrrr Not buying a second charger for the car yet
    4. GPS Mapping Issues: cannot seem to get Google Maps to show location, nor Microsofts Terrible Map Pro. But the basic windows 10 Maps do show my location.. So maybe I need to tweak some configurations, but all other lte G3 Apple or Samsung tablets have had issues showing my Location while driving.
    As a Road Warrior, the poor Speakers, lack of Bluetooth connection to cars speakers and microphone, and the non-function of google maps are critical issues.
    Until these problems are solved it is back to the Samsung note 12.2. :(

    Has anyone else got google maps to show your live time location when driving??

    What Bluetooth speaker microphone systems are compatible with the Surface Pro LTE

    I need wireless speakers minimun.. currently trying the Bose mini speakers.. just wish it had the microphone built-in and was a smaller form factor.. will use in my 2017 Ford Edge

    Teamviewer sharing killed the battery in about 2 hours.
    will experiment with a Lower resolution setting.

    @ender,

    It is best to allow your computer to update. The content of the update has specific context for your hardware, firmware, and software.
