powercfg.exe -batteryreport then check the root of your profile for the report in HTML or XML format. I will check here for the link to your thread as I think it is an excellent idea. I would love to see some of the old school guys here with the early version of the SP1 pro posting this information. The report is fairly comprehensive and should make it pretty clear what the differences are with the devices. Last I checked MS packed a HIGH QUALITY albeit small battery into the Pro.
Lesson learned about adhesive in this teardown—we go straight to the iOpener in order to get the battery out of its sticky cage.
As always, we are ignoring some kind of warning. This time, it tells us not to remove the battery from the back cover. Apparently, to safely replace your battery you will need a whole back cover assembly.
We don't understand the point of heavily-glued batteries. This kind of planned obsolesce is completely unnecessary.
We assume the sweet camo pattern on the rear case interior is an insulating coating applied to the otherwise conductive panel.
