Can I charge my Surface with the USB-C port?
Surface Studio 2 has a USB-C port, but it does not receive inbound power through USB-C. You should use the power cord that came with your Surface Studio 2 for power.
You can usually charge your Surface with the USB-C port. However, we highly recommend using the power cable that came with your Surface because the charging speed with a USB-C cable can be very slow, depending on the power supply and cable you’re using.
