Back in September Microsoft announced the new Surface Pro 2 and Surface 2. Announced alongside those two tablets was the Surface Power Cover, a new keyboard that can give your Surface some extra charge. The Power Cover did not launch at the same time as the new tablets. Today Microsoft has finally announced when it will be available for purchase.
The Surface Power Cover will be available March 19th for $199. That may seem a bit pricey for a keyboard cover, but that’s for good reason. With a 30Wh battery the Power Cover can give your Surface tablet up to 70 percent more battery life. The typing experience on the Power Cover is similar to the original Type Cover, which means it isn’t backlit.
You can pre-order the Surface Power Cover from Microsoft starting today. It won’t ship until March 19th. If you’re looking to get some extra juice out of your Surface tablet this can be an invaluable accessory. Hit the link below to order yours today.
