  • Surface Tip Question

    I have a Surface – windows 8 pro 128 GB and I don’t know if the keyboard battery is charging any longer. How or where do I check for this? Thanks.

    Thank for your question! First, you need to know that there are three types of the keyboard cover available for Surface with Windows 8 Pro.

    • Surface Touch Cover and Surface Type Cover – these two types of keyboard cover don’t have a built-in battery.
    • Surface Power Cover comes with a built-in 30.0 Wh battery. It can be identified with a significantly thicker than other two keyboard covers and additional connector pins.

    You can check the Surface Power Cover’s battery and charging status (Battery #2) via battery indicator on the Windows taskbar.
