    Does anyone know of any after market power adapters for the SB, which have a longer cable from the adapter to the SB?

    I know there are ones with longer cords from the outlet to the adapter but I can't seem to find any with a longer cable from the adapter to the Surface Book.

    I found this one on Amazon with good reviews but can't tell if the cable is actually longer: https://www.amazon.com/Egoway®-Adap...78908211&sr=8-6&keywords=surface+book+charger

    How did you make it longer? The cable that goes from the adapter to the laptop is fixed onto the adapter.

    I solved it with long cable between wall and adapter.

    The item to search for is "Figure 8" cord, non-polarized.
    The 6 foot cord for the Apple TV works perfectly. BestBuy markets the one pictured.

    BearFlag is trying to find a way of making the other cable longer, the one with the magnetic connector on it.

    I imagine the only way is going to be a slice and splice job unless there is some 3rd party option from China etc.

    Exactly I'm hoping for some aftermarket adapters that have a longer cord for the magnetic connector.
