    So another newbie question. I got to the office today and realized I forgot my power cord. I see the Surface 2 had a USB Charging option is there something I can do on the Surface 3 as opposed to heading back home for the cable?

    Where did you get that cable? I've an ianker astro pro 2 or whatever its called, which is designed for notebooks, with 12, 16, and 19v DC output that would be ideal with the sp3

    Scratch that. No chance I'm paying 100 dollars for a cable.

    What is the charging voltage of the Surface Pro 3?
    I hope there are some cables from china as for the older Surfaces soon ;)

    The Surface Pro 3 charges at 12v, making it most versatile.

    The battery pack I linked to in the original post outputs 5V, 9V, 12V, 16V, 19V, and 20V.

    Then I`ll buy a second charger, cut off the plug and make it interchangeable with a stabalized 12V car adapter...

    Or if MS releases a car charger, I`ll buy him directly ..
