2) The Surface Pen can be docked to the Surface Power Connector. It attaches magnetically just like the power cord.

3) The Surface Pro power brick houses a USB port that can be used to charge other devices like your phone or iPod. Keep in mind that this USB port is not linked to the Surface, so you can’t use it to plug in your external hard drive for example.
