I'm using SP1. Not that I know of. I was wondering the same. After I bought, I realised cannot. Perhaps, some guru has some way to charge SP via USB. That would be great.

what head is the plug?

can take picture and show?

i think energizer xpal 18000mah might be able to charge,

all three ports--the 16 to 20V, the 9 to 12V and the USB power port

whats the head of the surface pro?

Too ex already la and heavy.

Touch cover is unique as it is water and dust proof. Good for resort, beach use.

Type cover very good in typing fast.

Power cover no doubt extra juice 500g heavier
there's a proper use case for that.
normal usage as a tablet outside, can just use as it is without the cover of keyboard. this type usually just watch video, surfing net. not much productivity.

then there's the ultrabook type of use case, where people use the pro 2 as an ultrabook.

so, just need to bring the power cover in a sleeve or bag is more than enough. the tablet can just hold in hand.

for me...i might see myself using type or power cover at home as a ultrabook replacement. and detach it when moving around or going out and use just as a tablet.

but if planning to do some work on the go or work trip, then i would bring the cover along.

looks a good solution.
but i would prefer the cable to be usb/surface connector.
too bad my powerbank don't have 12V (surface input voltage is 12V?)

I rather use power cover instead of power banks. Don't need to carry seperate items. can carry as one

Power cover first impression: http://winsupersite.com/mobile-devic...ons-and-photos

but no backlit.. too bad.

thanks for sharing. I find this product is really interesting and most likely will be incredibly useful as it provides multiple angles which my current surface pro 1 only limit to poor angle.
might consider ordering this soon.

Do provide feedback on the quality of the case

Interested in getting Surface 2, Should be can qualify for student discount, 10% off, 556.20 for 32GB model, worth it not ah.
But most importantly, can I do some light video processing on it? Are there decent apps for it?
TIA!

The case is not coming in Apr.. its been delay till mid-may, and if you take the default international shipping(US$10) it would take maybe another 1-2weeks. so end up maybe in June.. so you still have plenty of time... (*UPDATE: New delivery date estimated to be mid-May, 2014)

Anyway, why r u waiting? just go order one online and just ship it over if you really needed one.. You are right, you talk so much also no use, go and turn your talking into action...
