Power Cover not charging with SP3


New Member
It detects it as a battery in device manager and as a keyboard.. shows it's charging but never gets above 0% .. Is there a trick to it? My main battery is full. I read somwhere to shut the SP3 down to charge it but that doesnt seem to work either.
FYI.. I'd like to charge it to test and old Surface 2 I have that doesn't hold a charge and I don't have an AC for it(on order). Any other ideas on how to power the powercover?
