FUCK the lightning connector. The socket in the device is durable enough, but the connector on the cable is SUPER fragile. The cable pulls out of the connector, and then it doesn't work, and the cables cost like $30.

I'd rather they just have micro usb.

It's definitely a thing. I've had a couple do this, including on a brand new iPad I bought at work for testing. Luckily, I had the one for my iPhone handy. I think the problem is that they made the hard plastic part too small and slippery, making it tempting to pull on the cable, and that it takes too much force to pull the connector out.

I had to drive the girl who flies our survey aircraft to a Walmart in Bumblefuck Texas the last time we did field work because she kept breaking them. We looked at like 20 different kinds, but couldn't find one that looked any sturdier than the Apple ones, and they're all outrageously expensive for a cable that should cost about $2.

probably not the same failure that's being "fixed" w/ this stuff but... it could help

what to me is really disturbing is the sheer volume of people who do not understand that a micro usb is a ....well, micro usb. I actually know people who have as many micro usb chargers as they have phones, and they refuse to charge without the specific chargers that came along with the phone

One broad at work asked everyone if they had a charger for S5. I told her yes, and that she could just keep it and I handed her one of the micro USB cables in my desk. She then proceeds to tell me 'oh no, that won't work. The S5 has a special connector, see?'

When I plugged the cable in and showed it worked just fine she gave me the 'are you some kind of wizard' tard look.

When I plugged the cable in and showed it worked just fine she gave me the 'are you some kind of wizard' tard look. I told her she didn't need those extra pins to charge her phone and that USB 3 was deliberately made backward compatible. I'm sure she didn't understand and probably thought I'd somehow hacked her phone by using the 'wrong' cable

My mom refused my charger because some dumbfuck had told her a charger that's not for your phone might bust the phone

I've never seen Sugru in the flesh, but if it sticks well enough to plastic, that actually might help. I think the answer is to make the little plastic piece of the connector maybe a quarter inch longer, and to knurl the surface, so the user has something to grab on to. Also, make the strain relief boot thicker and longer. It appears they actually may have done this in newer cables, as the one that came with my girlfriend's iPhone looks a little different from mine.

It's because of the lies people are told when they go to the Gaytt /Fagrizon stores. They mark the accessories up 400%
