Portable (and affordable) power accessories we love
Each and every one of these charging gadgets will keep your favorite gear and gadgets going for longer, and none of them costs more than $30.
VisionTek 8,000 mAh micro-USB power bank (opens in new tab) ($13 at Dell)
This compact dual-output powerbank can speedily recharge any and all your devices, thanks to a two-amp "fast charge feature," using its micro-USB out port. Its simple design includes an LED indicator, and it costs about as much as a single ticket to the movies.
Panasonic eneloop AA batteries (opens in new tab) (From $13 at Dell)
Panasonic's rechargeable batteries are among the best available, and just a couple of them will keep your favorite remote, mice or other peripherals powered up when you need them. They're also eco. And the company's affordable charger (opens in new tab) fits and charges both AA and AAA batteries at the same time.
Belkin Qi Wireless Charging Pad (opens in new tab) ($30 at Dell)
This unobtrusive Qi wireless charging pad looks good (and kind of like a UFO …) and easily charges all your Qi-compatible device up to 5W. Its LED indicator lights up when you're charging. And it costs just $30.

To everyone reading this who has a surface book 2 and had problems with the GPU dissapearing or getting blue screens with NVIDIA drivers, please know that this firmware update DOES NOT SOLVE ANY OF THOSE PROBLEMS :( We are still waiting for the proper update.
Unfortunately, I can confirm. I got the 389.2706.768.0 installed 3 weeks ago (06/06/2019 as part of Insider Release Preview), and am still facing issues with the GPU disconnection and general performance issues.
Have you updated your Nvidia driver? I'm on 430.86 and I have not experienced any blue screen or disappearing GPU problems. Sorry to hear for those who are experiencing this.
