You got a new Surface a few months ago and it was awesome!The battery life was good and you were happy with it.: Z If u know any way, also how to hotflash BIOS, I'll risk it.... If there are only two, there's no problem with hooking up an external battery to the laptop and flash it with that thing connected..No, that's a bull shit, they like to get money for the sake of their bad battery quality. [B] No, that's a bull shit, they like to get money for the sake of their bad battery quality. A colleage of mine has a car-battery attached to his IBM laptop, so he can work for over 10 hours when travelling with an international train or so...Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site. I take it the laptop will not flash unless it's on DC power.IBM support sux, I already contacted with them and they wrote:"Dear Sir Madam, You should use AC power adaptor when flashing the bios because in case ofpower cut off your machine systemboard will be seriouslydamaged so do use AC power adaptor Regards" And in the installation instructions for BIOS they say that:"Notes: - You need an AC adapter and a charged battery pack to update the system program." So I have AC adapter but not a working battery because they are in shit and I can't update BIOS!

When I was updating my Ativ S from WP8.0 to WP8.1 it wouldn't update if I had less than 50%, Thank you for your interest in this question.

To understand battery technology and battery life, it's good to know common battery terminology: Setting up your Mac for the first time When you set up your Mac for the first time, some activities—like setting up Mail and Photos, downloading your files from i Cloud, and indexing your files with Spotlight—can use more power than your Mac requires in general use.
