Microsoft Surface Connect to USB-C Adapter - USB-C adapter - 28.4 cm is rated2.00 out of5 by2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noncompliant with USB-PD and Type-C specification, or, Surface Pro 3This is Nathan K., I do USB-C verification and testing. I got this since I use a Surface Pro 3 personally.I understand this is stated as "designed for" newer Surface models, and so understood advanced features like DisplayPort passthrough may not work. However, I at least expected charging to work.Microsoft owns full control of the flat SurfConnector, after all.However, it will not even charge a SP3, despite being provided adequate voltage. This doesn't really make sense from a product design standpoint. True, it's Microsoft's court, but this makes for a poor consumer experience. It is akin to a Surface Book 65w charger not working on a 36w Surface Pro. It would make no sense.Furthermore (and more seriously) I encountered Type-C spec compliance issues. It will overcurrent USB-PD supplies, such as Apple's 30w USB-PD charger.All in all, I was hoping for better backward compatability. True, it can be handwaved away as "not compatible with ______", but that then reflects poorly on the state of Microsoft's first party ecosystem.
