Firmware update greatly improves battery life of the Microsoft Surface Pro 2
According to a report published on Saturday, a firmware update that was received by the Microsoft Surface Pro 2 has improved the battery life of the tablet. Before the update, the Windows 8.1 Pro powered tablet lasted 6.6 hours while browsing and 6.65 hours while playing video. After the update, those times improved to 8.3 hours for browsing and 7.73 hours for video.

The update was desperately needed as Microsoft admitted that the slate has a number of things that require power from the battery such as the higher resolution display, active digitizer and capacitive touch. Following the update, the Surface Pro 2 jumped over the Microsoft Surface RT, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1, the Microsoft Surface 2 and the Google Nexus 10  when measuring battery life while browsing. When it comes to viewing video, the update enabled the Surface Pro 2 to hop over the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1.

Any Microsoft Surface Pro 2 owners spot the improved battery life with their tablet?
