Default Surface pro 2 and external battery compatibility


Ive just bought a surface pro 2 128 gb.

I have a doubt, is it possible to charge it with an external battery ?

i have this one

would it be possible to charge the surface pro through the usb (very useful if you are on a long trip).

No, it doesn't charge via USB, not any more than your laptop does.

If you want an external battery for it, you can get the Power Cover from Microsoft. There may be third-party accessories that also work, but I'm not aware of any.

Do not private message me with questions that should have been posted on the forum! Not only are you wasting your time - I'm not going to bother writing an answer to such a question for only one person - but I will probably block you from PMing me in the future as well.
