A couple of months ago we reported that Surface Pro may have a battery life of around 4 hours(almost half of that of Surface RT) which is disappointing battery life for a Tablet as compared to the likes of iPad which provides 10 hours of battery life.But it seems like Microsoft has plans to improve the battery life of Surface Pro with Battery Pack Add -ons.

In a recent AMA Session on Reddit¬†¬†a user questioned about the mysterious connectors on the bottom of the surface pro,here’s what the Surface Team had to say,

Wow – I’m pumped you caught that – we haven’t announced what they are for but they aren’t an accident! At launch we talked about the “accessory spine” and hinted at future peripherals that can click in and do more. Those connectors look like can carry more current than the pogo pins, don’t they?

Another user asked a question about the external battery or a keyboard which doubles up as a battery to which the Surface Team Replied,

That would require extending the design of the accessory spine to include some way to transfer higher current between the peripheral and the main battery. Which we did..

So we can expect some exciting accessories for the Surface Pro in coming months,which would further boost the Surface Pro sells.
