"Remember the Simplo battery problem in Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 -- the one that many in the press called “batterygate”? It’s back with a vengeance. This time it’s hitting the other, more common battery found in the Surface Pro 3, the one from LGC.
Moreover, in a spectacular display of batt-fratricide, it looks like the new LGC battery problem was caused, or at least exacerbated, by the patch that fixed the Simplo battery. Microsoft MVP and Microsoft Answers forum community moderator Barb Bowman tweets:
It looks like the @Surface Pro 3 Simplo battery firmware fix is causing issues for LGC batteries. Microsoft is silent."
