    What do I need to buy to be able to charge my Surface Go by using the USB-C port?

    Can I do it through a USB-C to USB hub? (So I can also use my mouse.)

    Thanks, cb

    You will probably need something like this with pass through charging.

    Granted, I've never tested it myself.

    I've got several hubs and one specifically that does pass through charging with my Chuwi tablet, but none have ever worked on my surface go, still looking, but then since you've got a charge port as well as USB-C, it's not a major irritation for me.

    I've got a usb-c PD battery pack that works really well, charges my Go, my wife's XPS13 and all my other devices, I charge my Go with the power supply that came with it, though the battery can support a higher power rating so is faster. You can also use the power supply that comes with the Lumia Dock.

    After using a Go since pretty much it was released, I've found, you realistically need to ditch as many USB peripherals as possible, it becomes too much hassle to rely on a hub, so I've gone from USB keyboard and mouse, to the MS keyboard and bluetooth Logitech mouse, I only use my hub rarely, for those things you can't replace. I did try to minimise the new expenditure, but if like me you fly a lot, it just becomes impractical with all the wires.

    I got this, along with a good Anker USB-C cable. Works fine.
