Question Surface pro usb is damaged, is there any way I cam get a usb converter for the charging port?

Hi, my surface pro 3 usb port is damaged. As you know, surface pro 3 only has 1 usb port.

Is there any way I can create usb port access to the surface pro? There is a port for charging in the middle, but is there a usb converter to be connected to the charging so that I can start plugging usb again such as using a mouse?

Please advise, I tried to search online but cant seem to find such a product.

The simple answer is cannot... just get the USB port replaced... doesn't cost much... you don't have to go back to Microsoft to get it replaced... any laptop repair shop should be able to handle the replacement... try Sim Lim Square... I usually use PC Hospital on the fourth floor.

The charging port is propritory, so I unless you can find it in MS' store, otherwise you are out of luck. Try to get to fixed as recommended.
