Surface Pro 4 :: Love the power brick

It's always the small details that delight me. An extra USB port on the Surface Pro 4 power brick for instance. No need to bring an extra charger for your phone. On the Surface side of things you have this connector:

This slots in easily and is held by a magnet. If you trip over your cable you will not yank your Surface from the table. It also goes in both ways. And the cable does not stick out but follows the contour of the device.

On the other end of the brick there is a standard plug that lets me connect a cable that fits the country I am currently traveling in. No need for adapters, just a cheap cable available everywhere.

I also have a few of those but they are harder to get:

Regarding the last adapter you showed (the 90 degree one): Often times the original wall adapter of the Apple iPad power brick can be used as well.

Does not work with this power brick. The prongs are too short.
