Microsoft used a 47.7-watt lithium-polymer battery in all surface series. In Surface Pro 7, 8 battery only gives 14 hours of uptime. On web browsing or if you are playing video games.
But when I tested the battery of Microsoft Surface Pro by opening video editing and Graphics software for rendering and different web browsing for scrolling, it lasted only for 10 hours.
However, In Macbook M2 Pro 52.6 watt Lithium-polymer battery Apple claims can last for 18 hours which is the highest in the market. They further said it can last for 20 hours if you are playing videos. With the Fast-Charge power adapter of 67W, it charges quickly and offers the best performance.
