    The thread title pretty much says it all. With official Surface Pro 4 chargers selling from between $60 and $80, I'm looking for a cheaper option. I see third party chargers for the Surface Pro 3 on Amazon that are rated very high selling for around $30. It's my understanding that due to different power requirements, SP3 chargers will not work with the SP4. Are there any other options you're aware of?

    Although there are few options out in Amazon US - http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&key...pUvbUpU3418883

    Still, IMO it might not be good option to use non-MS chargers with it !! Am sure most of the SP4 users would like to go for original charger @80 instead of some 3rd party one for @30-40 !!

    I got my third party charger for about 25. I think 80 is too much for a charger. I got it from China and have been using it for months on a daily basis. It's the charger I leave at the office. That way I can leave my charger at home.

    Thinking about the same thing. At work, at least I can monitor the heat. When at home, I generally only charge over night or when I'm not around, so I don't want to risk anything.

    Did you purchase from Amazon? If so, which one?

    I bought a third party surface pro 3 one for the pro 4. Works absolutely fine. It doesn't have a USB port to charge a second device like the official pro 4 one and the charge light is always on even when the device is not plugged into the device but for gbp 15 I'm not really complaining at all. I've had my charger for 2 months. So far so good...
