      If you have been frustrated with the Surface 3’s slow charging, you are not alone. I, too, have been getting frustrated.

      However, there have been reports that the charging time is considerably improved with the docking station. Good news!

      You may be wondering why that is. Well, it turns out the docking station has a more powerful charging port(24W) compared to the standard one including with the S3 (13W).

        You think they’d loan you one so as to find out ?

          Nope, they are pretty stingy with hardware like that. Only the really big tech news outlets tend to get test or loaner equipment.

            So, Joanna:

            Other than spending on a dock, is there any suggestion for charging faster???

                I wish there were other things but no, the S3 just charges slowly. Its charger just isn’t very powerful.
                🙁
