  • Surface Tip Question

    Yesterday I received a question from a partner: if Surface Book is charged via the keyboard, will the keyboard be charged first, and secondly the clipboard? Or the other way around?
    I know you can charge the keyboard separately, in case of urgency.

    Thank for your question! there are two facts that you need to know about Surface Book’s charging:

    1. You can charge Surface Book’s clipboard and keyboard base separately.
    2. Microsoft Surface Book uses “Save The Top” charging/discharging algorithm. It means that the clipboard section will be charged first and the keyboard section will be discharged first.

    So when you charge your Surface Book’s keyboard section with the clipboard attached, the clipboard section will be charged first.

    Check out this video at (4:16) for confirmation from Microsoft Mechanics team.

    This is how you can charge or dock your Surface Book’s clipboard alone:
