    My impression was: you can charge your SP3 any way(end up or end down). My SP3 only charges when plug in with end up. It would NOT charge when end down. My SP1, I can charge it any way.

    Can someone check yours? If this is an issue on my SP3. I need to get it exchange.

    Thanks in advance...

    I've had mine in either way and it charged just fine. Didn't know there was a specific way to plug it in. Thought it functioned like the MacBooks and there was no upside down, but I could be wrong. Maybe mine's broken and it shouldn't be charging upside down? In fact, I usually plug it in the opposite direction of this blog:

    so the cable goes up on mine, not down. I find this gets the cable out of my way when I'm using it.

    That is what I thought too, it should function as MacBook charger. My SP3 can only charge with one specific way. I guess, it is defected and I will make exchange.

    Mine charges up or down. Maybe the pins on the plug are messed up on yours.
