    How weak and pathetic is this dock?

    I only have an iPhone SE with the smallest battery in current smartphones, and it can't even hold a consistent charge.

    The phone is constantly going in and out of charge which triggers the Windows alert sound of a peripheral being connected/disconnected.

    There is nothing else plugged in to the Surface Book, and the only thing connected to the dock is the phone, yet it can't hold a charge.

    Is this a hardware/firmware issue or is the dock seriously that bad? :(

    Idk on the dock specifically but do any of the Microsoft USB ports provide more than the bare minimum 900ma of power? Surface devices don't...
