Rated 3 out of5 by fromUse it everyday, but only lasts until lunchI love this, especially with the Docking Station, but it will only last until lunch. During lunch, though, I charge it, and it will typically last until the end of day. If you can remember to charge it during lunch, then all is good. Otherwise, though, I'd grade the battery life as poor.

Rated 2 out of5 by fromAwesome concept but bad battery lifeIf the battery would last more than 3hrs I would rate this as 5 stars but it doesn't. My monitor is my tv, so the adapter is great since I can sit on my couch. After the adapter has been charging for over 24hrs, I go to use it and it only works for a few hours. I would love for it to work a min of 8 hrs even if that meant adding more weight and size to it.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromVery useful, and now works with SP3 cover!I purchased this adapter when I got my SP2 and now use it with my SP3.Great: Instantly connect upon attachment to keyboard! What more do you want click in and it's ready.Mediocre: Due to limitations with bluetooth the trackpad looses it's "Precision" status and gestures no longer work.Summary: I like using this at my desk with a mouse (see note above) and second monitor. This lets me comfortably position my Surface as a notepad with OneNote and work with a larger display. Allows for the perfect setup. Minus one star for poor trackpad performance.

Rated 5 out of5 by fromGreat add-onBought this when it first came out, I use it mostly when I have the Surface hooked up to an external monitor. It works great, and I haven't had any of the issues with battery live or battery drain. Keep it in my bag with the Surface, and have never had it come out dead even after a couple months of sitting in the bag.

Rated 4 out of5 by fromGood product, only charges while off.The unit itself functions well, and connects reliably with Bluetooth. The only issue I have with the adapter is the charging situation - it will only charge when turned off. Plugging it into a USB connection while turned on and in use will not charge the adapter, according to MS Support. For the build quality and the price, a simultaneous charging-while-in-use solution would have been more appropriate.

Rated 3 out of5 by fromGreat Gizmo - Bad Battery :-(A great innovative accessory, really like that it turns my keyboard into a standard Bluetooth one, not proprietary to the Surface Pro -- works with my Apple TV even.The only thing I don't like about the accessory is the use of a NiMH battery.  Takes longer to charge (4-5 hours from being discharged) and doesn't last all that long (6-8 hours of continuous use).  NiMH also loses a charge when not in use, at about 1% a day -- doesn't do standby well.  The only reason to choose NiMH over lithium ion would be cost, it's a lot cheaper.The accessory is priced as if it contains lithium ion, but instead contains older battery tech -- NiMH :-(

Rated 4 out of5 by fromVery useful, but can't hold a chargeThe wireless bar is invaluable, especially when using a TV as a monitor or simply distancing yourself away from the body of the Surface. However, the charge drains for some reason. I thought this thing would have come with a lithium battery, but this must be using some sort of old battery tech or something is wrong with mine. Anyway, if I use it right after a full charge, it lasts a while, but if I charge it a few days in advance, it looses charge over those days while idle, and that's pretty inconvenient. For that, I took off a star.Other than the battery charge leak, this is a fantastic product. It feels solid, well-made, and it connects quickly and reliably.
