There's the MikeGyver selection...
OR you can roll your own...
You'll need a power pack capable of outputting 12 volts and a cable for the Surface Pro 3

Make sure your cable mates with the battery pack.
I was almost drooling until I looked at that price. I guess I will experiment and make my own one day.
The other vendors will come along eventually they have SP1/2 and Surface rt/2 supported. Mr First to market is getting away with highway robbery for now since it was the only thing available in the beginning.
Finding a powerbank is the easy part, the cable (one of a known quality) is the harder part. I have the ianker astro pro 2 that i originally bought for my tablets, and it is pretty bitching.
Wow a steal for 560 lol...
I use a 20000 mAh batterypack from Anker: http://www.ianker.com/product/79AN20L-SA
I bought it here in The Netherlands for 50 euro's.
I used it for my Surface RT
Now with additional adaptercable : http://www.aliexpress.com/item/NEWE...rger-one-side-DC5-5-2-5-other/2050383422.html
This works fine, but remember, first change output to 12 V before3 pluggin in
This looks like the same unit Mikegyver is selling only much cheaper.
Note: Surface Pro 3 cable is not included. Sold separately.
The stuff mikegyver was selling was utter daylight robbery, but he could justify it at the time because there was nothing else available on the market.
Maybe Mike gets some credit for providing product for what was then an undefined and uncertain market. Several of us here went through the learning curve on accessory power for the SP1 (the old posts are probably still back there somewhere), and Mike also provided technical help for our efforts, even though it wasn't his product.
Hence why i said it was justified at the time, he was offering what was not available elsewhere. Even then though, $100 for a power cable was still daylight robbery.
