Toshiba SSD battery life windows 10

Unfortunately, PCs packed with Toshiba SSDs could experience lower battery life after getting the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Microsoft acknowledged the issue on its official forum. Fortunately, the company is already working together with Toshiba in order to identify all the affected systems and block the upgrade.

Battery issues on certain Toshiba SSDs models

After upgrading to Window 10 April 2018 Update, select devices with Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series or Toshiba BG3 Series solid state disk (SSD) drives may exhibit lower battery life.

Microsoft also says that it’s currently working with OEN partners and Toshiba in order to identify and block “devices with Toshiba XG5 Series or Toshiba BG3 Series solid state disk (SSD) from installing the April 2018 Update due to a known incompatibility that may cause battery performance issues.”

The company also estimates that the release date for resolving the problem will be sometime in June. The next Patch Tuesday rollout is set to begin on June 12, and customers whose PCs have been impacted by this bug will have to wait until then to receive a fix.

Try this workaround

While waiting for Microsoft’s patch to solve this issue, the company advises affected users to take advantage of the following available workaround.

The company says that users who have encountered the issue and are not patient enough to wait for a fix can follow the necessary steps to roll back to the previous version of Windows.
