How do I know if I qualify for a free replacement AC power cord (the cord that plugs into an electrical outlet)?
Surface Pro and Pro 2 customers
All Surface Pro and Surface Pro 2 customers qualify to order one free replacement AC power cord (the cord that you plug into an electrical outlet) for each eligible Surface you own without proof of damage.
The AC power cord can be unplugged from the power supply.
Surface Pro 3 customers
Only customers with Surface Pro 3 devices purchased before 15 July 2015 qualify (newer Surface Pro 3 devices already have the new-style AC power cord). If you have an old-style AC power cord, you can order one free replacement AC power cord for each eligible Surface Pro 3 you own without proof of damage.
Check to see whether you already have a new-style AC power cord (the cord you plug into an electrical outlet).
If you already have a new style power cord as shown below, you do not need a replacement and no further action is needed.
