    Hi all,

    I bought a new SP4 from amazon.co.uk (2 days ago) and the battery isn't great. I did a battery report and it says its battery design is 38,152 but I think that is low. Also the battery report mentions under 'usage history' that is was on AC power during august-September active for 167.58.59. Do you think that is normal???

    Any help would be great.

    How many battery cycles has it had? It should also say in the battery report. The design capacity is, from what I've seen, normal. I've seen anywhere from 38 to 39.5 from the SP4s I've used.

    It says only one cycle that's what puzzles me. I don't know why the report mentions days between july and September in the usage history

    What you are seeing is the final factory QA check prior to shipping....

    All of times are exact - looks programmatic, is anything wrong with machine?

    Windows 10 does a whole bunch of system optimizations in the first couple of days so I wouldn't be worried yet. Give it a week of the device being on and see if it gets better during that time.
