    I know with laptops, You can sometimes get a higher wattage charger to get more out of the hardware. Like my HP, It came with a 45W adapter and I got the 65W option that HP offered.

    Can I do this with my SP4 M3? Which is 1.6A 15V 24W (1735 model).

    I know the i5, i7 models are 2.58A 12V 36W (1625 model).

    Thoughts?

    I know people have tested the higher Wattage chargers from the Surface Book with the SP4 and the charging times didn't change. I haven't been able to find anything where anyone is getting any substantial improvement in charging times with a higher wattage charger,

    Not so much charging times... since most devices now a days have resistors in place to filter the higher amps etc to keep from damaging the battery. I am wondering if the higher watts would speed up the device in general. faster CPU / hardware speeds etc.
