Microsoft recently rolled out an important Surface Pro 3 update aimed at fixing battery degradation. Surface owners have been complaining about battery degradation issues for months, and fortunately the nightmare is now over.

This news is even more important as the alternative to fixing Surface Pro 3 battery issues is a costly one: Replacing a SIMPLO battery would have taken out no less than $500.

Surface Pro 3 owners confirmed the latest firmware update allowed them to use the battery mode for the first time in months, restoring their trust in Microsoft.

[…] full charge capacity at 34,200 immediately after applying the update. up from 828 beforehand.

I’m glad (though not entirely convinced until I’ve given it some more testing) that MS have finally got around to fixing this […] . It’s a little worrying that a fix to a problem that made devices unusable was downloaded in about the time it took me to click the ‘check for updates button’ and yet took 3 months to release. But thank you microsoft for getting there in the end.

However, it appears the update hasn’t fixed the battery issue on all Surface Pro 3 devices. While devices powered by SIMPLO batteries are no longer plagued by battery degrading issues, Surface Pro 3 devices with LGC batteries are still affected.

looks like the problem still persist with LGC LGC batteries… oh my….. for those who is with LGC LGC batteries, I think  you should group together to tell the problem to Microsoft Greg. the problem might still persist for LGC LGC batteries. the patch may only have solve the problem for SIMPLO batteries only.

As a result, a new thread has been opened for Surface Pro 3 with LGC batteries, and Microsoft has officially acknowledged that “That’s definitely a different problem from what we saw with the Simplo batteries.”  The report has been sent it back up to the engineering team.

Yes, Batterygate is still here.
