Microsoft Surface Power Cover to be Released Soon
The newest offering by Microsoft for their Surface tablet lineup, the Surface Power Cover, will be available starting March 19, 2014. Specifications on how large the battery is within the Surface Power Cover have not been revealed by Microsoft, but the soon to be released keyboard will greatly extend battery life on the Surface Pro, Surface 2, and Surface Pro 2. A 60 percent increase in battery life will be noticeable on the Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2, while the Surface 2 will see an increase of 70 percent. Unfortunately, the battery pack keyboard loses backlit keys, which are featured across all other Microsoft Surface keyboards.
Consumers can currently pre-order the accessory from the Microsoft Store for $199.99, which includes free shipping.
