The Surface Pro 3 has gotten a bit of bad reputation around its battery life following problems with batteries manufactured by both Simplio and LG.
While Microsoft quietly fixed a problem for LG batteries today via a firmware update, the company is also refunding out-of-warranty charges for replacement tablets. Microsoft stayed mum on the issue for awhile and its support team was charging $450 for replacement units, according to Neowin.
It's not the first time — Microsoft issued these kinds of refunds for those who had problems with Simplio batteries earlier in the year.
You can find a FAQ from Microsoft about the refunds here. It suggests that if you were eligible for a refund you were likely already contacted, so be sure to check your spam mail.
