|Hammy98 Aka ABLOT Sold Me A Defective Unit by JimmyCrow(m): 5:53pm On Mar 22|
bought Microsoft surface pro 1796 from abalot on January 28th, I initially told him from my estimated use 100 to 27% that the laptop can give at best 3-4hrs battery and not the 8hrs he advertised. He kept giving me excuses and telling me all sorts of stuff ..I let it slide since light isn't really a problem from my side. Ten days after purchase the laptop got to 17% for the first time and shut down instantly and wouldn't come on until I plug it in and it continues charging from 17%, I told him about this he started on about bios setting and all that , I told him I'm not a computer illiterate there's no way bios is causing this...and what settings anyway? He just kept repeating himself
I remember telling him that I searched on forums and this problem will only get worse with time. He kept searching forums and supposedly contacting people to fix the problem. Few days later it turned off at 27 and then the next time 37, 47 and now these days it's anywhere from 29-47. Abalot all this while was supposedly contacting people and Microsoft...also sending me links to try solutions which all failed. Alas I told him this can't be solved so he has to replace my unit or the battery, he said ah the battery is like 100k o I then found a plug that can get it for 75k and told him..this guy again turned against me and started saying the battery is not up to 75k...ok that's not really my business, fix my laptop nah I can't be left with a defective unit. Nowadays he has just stopped picking my calls and even after involving wese who was the escrow between us, this guy still doesn't take my calls and only replies the group when he feels like so I have decided to call him out today. I have waited long enough. Since January 28th. He don stall me till now and has started calling me a liar. The battery just now went from 100 to 31% in 1hr 20mins and turned off instantly again. I have since asked him if this laptop was opened or battery replaced which is sensible considering there's a bubble around the part the screen normally would be raised from if such a change occurs and he said no. 8hours battery life indeed. Na this liar he d call me d vex me , it's my fault for giving him a chance to fix the issue and handling this calmly thinking he's a good person.

He sold u a defective ba3. Regardless, before you baught the laptop from him, you should have checked the estimated time remaining on the ba3.

Memory effect on a lithium ion battery? That's the weirdest thing I have seen in a very long time. It's obvious that the battery was already defective and seems to be suffering from memory effect.
It will only get worse progressive.

atheistandproud:yes it definitely will, it's never going below 47% again. Sometimes even 50.
