How to charge Microsoft Surface Book 2 via USB-C?


It’s really simple to charge your Surface Book 2 via USB-C. Just like the Surface Connect connector, the USB-C connector itself is reversible, so you don’t have to worry about the wrong side plug-in. For Surface Book 2 which required Power Delivery technology for charging over USB-C, you will only need a USB-C PD charger and a USB-C to USB-C cable.

Note Microsoft Surface Book 2 doesn’t support charging via a standard mobile phone charger. Currently, only Microsoft Surface 3 and Surface Go/Go 2 that support charging over a standard mobile phone charger.

In this example, we have an Anker PowerPort Speed PD 30 charger that has a single 30W USB-C PD output port connected and charges the device over a USB-C to USB-C cable:
