Dell Mocro USB Dongle for Data and Charging

Still loving the tablet. I did not think I would be using a Win8 tab at all. I am a die hard Android user but this tablet has changed my mind. I have a dozen other ideas to use it for now. I am sure I will be obtaining a few more in my future.
At $20, I'll definitely pick one up. It's funny that a USB adapter dongle is half the price of the whole tablet, but I suppose that just shows how good the original deal was.
Here's the manual for the adapter, by the way:
