What's new

Worst battery powered device ever, my SP3...

2nd battery firmware update released 11/7/2016
have no idea what it fixed. I noticed my recharge cycles being artificially inflated 10x...1 charge - 10 cycles when I applied the August firmware update.

update: cycle count now at 199 and increasing rapidly. Will have an expensive brick soon!

FYI. Sp3 isn't the worst hybrid tablet I've used. Microsoft sells those winbook tablet /laptop and the battery will go to 0 within 3 hours when hybernate so you always have to turn it off. And even off the battery goes in 8 hours lol
