The Surface Pro from Microsoft is one fine 2-in-1 laptop, with its 2,736 x 1,824 resolution touch display, detachable keyboard and touchpad, and plenty of hardware configuration options. There's even an LTE version for those who are constantly on the go and cannot be bothered with a lack of internet.

The battery in the Surface Pro, which realistically gets about eight hours of use from a single charge (Microsoft claims about 13.5 hours), is essentially non-replaceable, and this is a concern for some potential buyers. Windows Central forum member skstrials recently created a thread asking a few questions about Surface laptops and their batteries.
The main question here is how current Surface owners plan on changing out a worn-down battery in the years to come, if at all. There are already a number of replies talking about some first-hand experience with Surface batteries; most are positive, saying battery life shouldn't become an issue as long as you take proper care of it.
Have you had to search out a worthwhile battery replacement kit? Have you had any issues with the battery in your Surface device? Drop by the forum and let skstrials know what you think!
