Battery life time left

Hi

on my old surface pro 3 when I hovered mouse over battery level it told me time left until battery was dead

on the new surface it just says percentage left and not in hours and minutes

ive had a look but cant seem to find an option to change it over

any ideas

Cheers Sean

I have two Surface Book units, a SB2, and a SB2 15 inch. Battery life is about 6 hours.

I don't use Chrome, as it cuts battery life in about half, for me.

When charging, you will see messages similar to these (depending upon your current status):

86% available (plugged in)
26 min to full charge
41% available
2 hours 3 minutes remaining
03 min to full charge
98% remaining

yes I get time till fully charged that's fine

what I want is time left till battery dead when running on battery online just says percentage and no time estimated

As the battery depletes, your Surface estimates the time remaining. After a certain percent remaining (maybe 40% or so) the message starts giving time estimates.
