    I went to 3 different stores and none sell them. What were they thinking? My charger works but I can see that with time this one is going to get lot of wear and tear where it plugs to the unit. Microsoft should had thought of selling them separately in case users need one.

    Get the Surface dock. It charges your device, so you'll have your other charger as an additional one

    Didn't see them anywhere, I guess they are trying to push the dock as a secondary charger solution? Is much more expensive than the charger I think so I am still waiting.

    They sell them on Amazon. Was thinking about getting one myself, so I have one for at work and one for my bedroom.

    Found it here: microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/Microsoft-Surface-65W-Power-Supply-for-Surface-Book--Surface-Pro/productID.325726200

    Also, I think that the charger for SP3 works.

    Well sure it is, but you get a lot of other features besides just an additional charger

    Surface Pro 3 chargers work for the SP4. So you can get on eBay, AliExpress, Amazon, etc and find an ORIGINAL charger. For my Sp2 I had 2 HORRIBLE third party ones, and they were a complete waste of money! Do yourself a favor, pay a little extra and get a used (or new) original SP3 charger. That's what I did from Aliexpress.

    I'm trying a middle approach. I'm getting a third party charger off of Amazon by Emallee. It's not the cheapest 3rd party one there, which sells for as little as $15. But the $15 gets just over 3 stars. This one gets 4 1/2 stars from buyers and costs $25. More than the cheapest but much less than the cost of a new power supply from Microsoft. I'll let everyone know how it does.

    So stars cost ~$6.66 per unit to upgrade on random 3rd party chargers.

    200€ to have a spare charger? I guess if money is no object go for it but ..............

    No, it is $200 for a docking station, that gives you monitor ports, USB ports, a speaker port, networking port, AND power... all by plugging just one plug in to your SP4

    None of which people are asking for in here. All they are asking for is another charger. At no point are they asking for Ethernet support or external speakers. If you want that stuff, go for it, but when someone is JUST asking for a charger, this is a $200 charger to that person and nothing more.

    As mentioned earlier, today I got, and have now tested, a charger off of Amazon by Emallee. It works just fine, but one stipulation: For that $50 you save (It costs $25), you get a significantly slower charge time. It's been charging about 2 hours now and got from 20% to 55%. So yeah, about 6 hours to get a full charge. But if you just want a separate charger to use overnight while you're in bed (as is my case), it will be fine.

    Thanks for the replies, I feel reassured of the concern of the charger question. Since I had previously the Surface pro 2. The charging cable will eventually break due to regular use and bending. And on the my new SP4, even with the thicker rubber wrapping the cable I can see this happening later on.

    I chatted with the MS Store about getting a spare charger for my SP4 m3 and she said it was too new for chargers to be available separately yet.

    I have been using the spare charger I purchased for the SP3 for my SP4 with no issues at all. So I find it odd that the MS Store employee gave you that lame excuse. Oh well!
