How to charge Microsoft Surface Pro X via USB-C?


It’s really simple to charge your Surface Pro X 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. Anyway, there are 2 ways to charge your Surface over USB-C depending on the available charger port:

  1. USB-A to USB-C: You can charge your Surface Pro X with any standard USB charger or portable power bank with a good charging rate (at least 5V/1.5A) by connecting them with the USB-A to USB-C cable.
