I have had my Surface Pro 4 for just over 4 months now and recently i have been noticing a problem with the battery. :(

So after the battery reached it's full charge 100% and after i unplug the charger, It stays on 100% for about 10/12 minutes and then after instead of going to 99% and 98% and it goes straight down to 97 or 96% every single time now in the last couple of weeks and it is annoying because i am not getting not as much battery life anymore because of this and i am really worried that it will get worse over time. :(


And all so i have checked the battery wear and on 2 monitoring software programs and it says about that i have about 0% or 1% wear of the battery and set it!

I have never had this battery problem before on my Surface Pro 4 and I really want to fix this stupid battery problem that i am having on my Surface Pro 4!!


So everyone How do i fix this battery problem and make it go from full charge 100% to 99% again?? And have you ever had this battery problem before on your Surface Pro 4?? o_Oo_O

To fix the issue ignore it. No battery % indicator will be accurate as long as there is a chemical process involved.

I think you are mainly dealing with the inaccuracy of windows battery meter. There are so many other factors it's probably impossible to pinpoint. You really should just look at overall battery life and if that is acceptable. You could also go to the MS store and see if other models do this. But it sounds pretty normal, you used 3-4% in 10 minutes and the battery monitor in windows just doesn't keep up.

OP, just monitor your battery life. If you're still getting the same amount of actual usage from the device, then this is nothing to worry about. It's just your OCD eating at you. ;)
