Battery Warning?

Recommended Posts

RMansfield

Twice since I've had my Surface RT for less than two weeks, it's suddenly shut down without warning because the battery was drained. This has taken me by surprise both times because I had no warning.

 

Every other electronic device I own gives me a low battery warning, but the Surface RT does not.

 

Or am I missing something? Is there a setting that I could turn on so that I get a warning when the battery is low?

Ok, for the sake of anyone else who might have this same question, I figured out the solution to my issue. I raised the percentage of the low battery status to 10%.

 

Last night, when my battery got down this low, my Surface RT gave me a warning, and I was able to plug in before it shut down.

To make this post of value, why don't you tell us how you raised it.

Maybe if you used a nicer tone in your post, someone would post the process.

School dog, one should not assume tone in written text. If I was being curt you would have known.
