The fact that Microsoft changed the power adapter on the Surface, yet again, is very annoying—until you realize the benefits. The micro USB charging on the Surface 3 is the Holy Grail. If you have a Surface 3, you can recharge from just about any source at any time. Not only does the Surface 3 last longer on a single charge, thanks to its more energy-efficient architecture, but if it gets low, you can add juice from just about any USB power source using any industry standard micro USB cable.
Microsoft has pitched the Surface line as a hybrid between a traditional PC and a mobile device since its inception. Thanks to the micro USB charging capability, the Surface 3 is actually the first of the Microsoft tablet line to truly deliver on that promise.
The Belkin MIXIT↑™ USB-C to Micro USB Charge Cable lets you charge your USB-C device as well as sync your photos, music and data to your existing laptop at transfer speeds of 480 Mbps. Plus, the cable also supports up to 3 Amps of power output for charging USB-C devices.
The micro USB charge adapter allows you to recharge your Plantronics Voyager Legend headset from any micro USB charge cable. Tethered attachment allows you to keep the adapter secured to the charge cable of your choice.
