Hi guys,
Any idea where in Singapore I can buy new battery for the SP3 Pen?

Its the AAAA type, very uncommon

The tip button is work, pairs over blutooth, opens OneNote etc...but no writing once paired and the back/eraser buttons don't work. The troubleshooter on the MS website suggest battery needs replacing...

Can consider the Miix 700 from Lenovo... looks good... lighter and more powerful than the Surface 3 and even the Surface 3 Pro

So after searching this thread I saw the 9v battery hack...take one apart to get six pieces of AAAA battery for the Pen.

Even watched a couple of videos on youtube showing how.

So I opened up an EverReady and an Energizer and this is what I got both times:




So still no AAAA batteries for me

I wonder if everyone is now making 9v batteries like this...maybe I can find a Duracell to pull apart tomorrow...

u kidding me? its also a LOCAL set with warranty. buying online is so much better if u have cards that give rebates. the avenue to seek help for rma is so convenient.

My friend, this promotion is from Singapore Microsoft only. Durface 3 comes with free surface pen and surface 3 keyboard cover. I checked USA Microsoft, they is no promotion at their side. Too bad no offer for extended warranty.

you need to get your facts straight . buying from microsoft store does not mean is local set. They shipped from China iirc. ive chat with them before. Besides, if local microsoft has such offer, why local stores do not honor the same?

Going by your logic, then almost all tech products sold all over the world are all China sets.

Actually, I personally prefer the option of just mailing in the set to them in the event that support is required, rather then going down to their service centre and spending time there. But then, that's just me. That's why I have no issue buying parallel import items.
