New to the forum and I've got a couple of questions re batteries and power. I picked up an i5 256 SB without gpu (great for my needs, writing, browsing and Dreamweaver primarily). For the curious, so far the Book has been running fine with only a couple of minor issues, no show stoppers for me and I haven't been this excited about new tech in a long, long time. Anyways, on to my questions. I'm electrically challenged so I thought I'd see what the folks here have to say. First. Will frequently detaching/attaching the clipboard portion eventually degrade the battery inside and result in shorter useable life when detached? Haven't seen any discussion on this. Second. I split my time between Canada (110V) and Southeast Asia, mostly Malaysia (240V). For my old Surface, laptops, tablets etc I've always used simple travel plug adaptors. Will it be fine to continue to do so or would I be better off getting a power converter or even buying a microsoft power supply that fits the sockets in Malaysia (see question below)? and last. I find the recharge very slow. I know that my model comes with the less powerful power supply. Would getting one of the more powerful power supplies give me a faster recharge (either the one for SB's with gpu or the 65 watt version)?
