    My SP6 dies at around 30 % battery - why?

    Yes, it was Microsoft Norway that said I wasn't covered by them because I had bought it at Elkjøp. Elkjøp said that they didn't cover batteries after a year or two.

    @wpoe Yeah, but because it was bought at Elkjøp (sort of like Circuit City in Norway) their warranty didn't cover it. And Elkjøp considered battery a "wear and tear" part, even if it's impossible to replace for regular folks.

    Contacted MS, and I'm getting a new device as soon as they have received mine. I hadn't noticed the main thing about the battery report, which was at the top saying that it was more than halved: DESIGN CAPACITY 45 000 mWh FULL CHARGE CAPACITY 20 310 mWh I'll have to see...

    Thanks, I didn't know about that one! It does seem like there's not much left: 2020-12-28 - 2021-01-04 35 970 mWh 45 000 mWh 2021-01-04 - 2021-01-11 38 910 mWh 45 000 mWh 2021-01-11 - 2021-01-18 38 910 mWh 45 000 mWh...

    Yeah, I think I have one on the Norwegian version of Craig's List, thanks! :)

    My SP6 dies at around 30 % battery - why?

    I have now done this everyday for almost a week (by reading my regular news in bed at night and then leaving the Surface running, standing up on the floor with the screen towards the wall), and it has not gotten any better. Actually last night it had stopped on around 40 %, not 30! Is it because...

    My SP6 dies at around 30 % battery - why?

    I do. I have drained it to around 35 % almost every night, with the hours of surfing (full brightness, full speed on the CPU, power saving is for wimps...). I did a Prime95 just now (in case you're not familiar with it it was very much used in overclocking when that was still a big thing, sort...

    My SP6 dies at around 30 % battery - why?

    Aha, thanks! Worth a shot. :) But it's not connedted at night, only from 8 to 16-22 (depending on the workday), and then taken out. But I will find a way to wear it out. I'll put logging on it so I can see when it stopped and on what percentage.

    My SP6 dies at around 30 % battery - why?

    I don't mean going into Sleep or Hibernation. It just suddenly cuts out while I'm reading my online newspapers at night (which is when I use the battery, the thing is connected all day, when I'm working). This takes around 3-4 hours of just web browsing, nothing else. And when I connect it to...

    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    I don't know if that's even the same firmware since it doesn't have fans, though.

    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    I'm an idiot. I wrote SP7, I meant SP6... I found the latest firmware. It says Surface - Firmware 11.8.70.3626.

    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    What's the firmware number hidden under? I thought it was under firmware, UEFI, but the number I have there is 235.3192.768.0. So a different format. Also SP7, i7.

    Does anybody else have a hot Surface on the latest firmware?

    After the firmware update a few days ago it seems like the fan on my SP7 is running almost all the time, at high speed. And the device is far too hot for the 10-18 % CPU I'm using. It's not even hot, June was a lot hoter here in Norway, so that's not the problem.
